lyrics

I wasn't young and I wasn't old
I's just taking a breath and I was tucked down in the fold
Life wasn't special, it wasn't real bad,
but I took no pride in the little that I had.
I looked at my kids ages 3 and 5
and I felt an aching I can hardly describe.

It wasn't the money, it wasn't the time,
but i felt something break in the back of my mind.

I laid in my bed and I looked at my wife.
I knew something was rotten
I knew that nothing was right
Yeah, I stared at the ceiling, I felt a weight on my chest,
and I started laughing thinking 'bout "Daddy Knows Best"
But I wouldn't know nothing just guilt and rot.
My life consumed me and I was boiling in the pot.

Now if they find me in a bar someplace
well I'm an honest man I think I'll tell 'em to their faces.
I tried to be decent but something just broke
surrounded by smiles at the end of my rope.
So take me away, give me your worst, I tell ya
no prison is darker than a love you don't deserve.

This moment was the birth of the band name.
Ambulance rose from the ashes of Houston's mid 90's band Horseshoe starring Greg Wood and his songs.
