Who went and had himself a little boy to carry on the name
and who's gonna show us all all a thing or two about mastering this game
will it go on and on
'n Who went and had himself a little boy with a clear-eyed happy wife
will a generational default be all that's left of life
oh where did I go wrong in this where did I lose that love
Will the pain of all that's lost for good be the burdens carried on
Into another place and time not life into the void of all
Where is all the damage that humbled down this wall
Tell me who went and had himself a little boy to show big brother up good
will the happiness of throwing all this love make everything as it should?
And will this be a happy time just another day in paradise
Will you ever understand such pain will you have the strength to carry on?
to carry on with life
Now look who's standing here tonight with his tail between his legs
Was it love that I needed all along I just didn't know how to beg
Oh I never learned how to beg... for love I didn't know how to beg for love
I didn't know to need that love. Didn't know how to ask or plead
couldn't ever let you see me plead Oh I didn't know how to ask or reach
My mamma thought it wasn't what you teach And I didn't know how to ask.... fooooor love
I never knew how to beg... for love Oh, I never knew how to beg.... for love.
And this is all that's left of.................. me
So tell me who went and had himself a little boy to bless himself with life
and in the corner will you leave just the tiniest burning light.
Oh, I didn't know how to ask for, I never learned how to try right
I never learned how to cry right, I never never learned to plead for
No payoff just to bleed for I never learned how to beg........ for love.
