Lyrics

Sixteen years
And all I got was high
Sixteen years
I couldn't even look you in the eye
Sixteen calendars
With nothing in their frames
You said you'd pencil me in
But you don't know my name
My name

Sixteen tons
I was under there
Sixteen suns
Hanging on a stand
You hide the money in the bank
The money has no shape
Shame corroded you
But you don't know my name
My name

Once in your life
Make it be good
Good as a train
Once in your life
Do what you could
Make it sustain

Sixteen years
And all I got was high
Sixteen ways
To shrivel up and die
You pegged me for a fool
But I'm the one to play
I played a pretty neat fool for you
But you don't know my name
My name

Once in your life
Make it be good
Make it sustain

Don't let me die here
You don't know my name
My name
My name
