Dirty Bar of Soap

from by Mike Stocksdale

lyrics

I got a dirty bar of soap
Got some reasons I can’t cope
I got a head of hope if you would just give me a chance

I got a world of love and hate
Got a feeling I can’t shake
I got a heart that aches if you would just give me a chance

Got a man who says I’m good
I’m doing all the things I should
I would be yours I would if you would just give me a chance

I got these useless things I bought
I got a thousand excuses not
I got a will to stop if you would just give me a chance
-
I got some skeletons that live upstairs
But they ain’t going anywhere
I got a lot to share if you would just give me a chance

I got a fear of being fake
I can’t stop from staying awake
I might have made mistakes but you should just give me a chance

Got a thousand things gone wrong
I’ve been waiting so fucking long
I gotta play this song if you would just give me a chance
-
I got a smile on my face
I got a home I call this place
I got a girl I chase if she would just give me a chance
