John Cougar Mellencamp Lyrics

The Isolation Of Mister Lyrics
Never looked forward to the future
Never enjoyed where I've been
Couldn't keep my mind in the moment
Never really cared if I had a friend
I always felt like there was something better
Even when I had it made
Never respected the job I was doing
Never cared about money but I felt underpaid
Saw so many people
Walking out the door
Never cared about being lonely
Because I couldn't use you no more
I said, go away
I'm quittin' on you today

I always felt like sorrow was a lesson
I always felt I needed to feel the pain
I thought happiness was a transgression
And I just took it as it came
I never wanted to say too much
To other people I did not understand
Never made love with my heart in it
Never wanted to make any plans
Saw so many lovers
Walk out that door
Never cared about being lonely
Because you didn't love me no more
I said, go away, go away
I'm quittin' on you today

Love 'em, leave 'em, then forget 'em
Don't worry about 'em when they're gone
That's the way I always played it
Now maybe I played it all wrong
Been so indifferent about so many things
About my time and my rage
Thought I was livin' a life of freedom
But I was living in a cage
And that cage bred with my lower self
So many knots I did not untie
They came undone by my faults
And here's the reason why
Saw so many lovers
Walk out that door
Never cared about being lonely
Because I didn't love you no more
I said, go away, go away, go away
I'm quittin' on you today
