Is this the real life?

Is this just ________?

Caught in a landslide

No ______ from reality

Open your eyes

Look up to the skies and see

I'm just a poor boy, I need ___________

Because I'm easy come, easy go

A little high, little low

Anyway the _____ _______, doesn't really matter to me, to me


Mama, just killed a man

Put a gun against his ____

Pulled my _______, now he's dead

Mama, life had just begun

But now I've gone and _______ it all away

Mama, ooo

Didn't ____ to make you cry

If I'm not back again this time ________

Carry on, carry on, as if _______ really matters

Too late, my time has come

Sends _______ down my spine

Body's ______ all the time

Goodbye everybody I've got to go

Gotta leave you all behind and ____ the truth

Mama, ooo (anyway the wind blows)

I don't want to die

I _________ wish I'd never been born at all
