“At This Point in My Life” by Tracy Chapman

“You see when I’ve touched the sky, the earth’s gravity has pulled me down. But now I’ve reconciled that in this world birds and angels get the wings to fly.”

Done so many things wrong I don’t know if I can do right
Oh I, Oh I’ve
Done so many things wrong I don’t know if I can do right

At this point in my life 
I’ve done so many things wrong, I don’t know if I can do right.
If you put your trust in me, I hope I won’t let you down. 
If you give me a chance I’ll try

You see it’s been a hard road the road I’m traveling on.
And if I take your hand, I might lead you down the path to ruin.
I’ve had a hard life. I’m just saying it so you’ll understand
that right now, right now, I’m doing the best I can.

At this point in my life

At this point in my life

You see I’ve been climbing stairs but mostly stumbling down
I’ve been reaching high always losing ground
You see I’ve conquered hills but I still have mountains to climb
And right now, right now I’m doing the best I can

At this point in my life

Before we take a step
Before we walk down that path
Before I make any promises
Before you have regrets
Before we talk commitment
Let me tell you of my past
All I’ve seen and all I’ve done
The things I’d like to forget
At this point in my life

If you can believe in this heart of mine
If you can give it a try
Then I’ll reach inside and find and give you
All the sweetness that I have
At this point in my life

At this point in my life

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
