More of the Same But I Can't Complain

More of the Same But I Can't Complain


The hours, the days
They turn the gears
Grind down my dreams
Settle my fate
Yes, it's a shame
But I can't complain.

They looked away
When I tried to sing
The songs in my heart
But they've heard
Them before
And that's a real shame
But I can't complain.

A loss or a gain
Time is a wheel
Fleeting is fame
Sometimes we fail
To do what is right
I know it's a shame
But I can't complain.

It is what it is
And I've seen a lot
But there's much 
More to come
And time's flyin' by
I know it's a shame
But I can't complain.
