lyrics

I was once told, that I could be king
I was once told that I could do anything
Then when I did, they asked me "what's next?"
When I'd done that, they asked if that was my best
Now they ask me they say

What went wrong? You had it. You were so close.
What went wrong? You had it.

You were so close is my middle name.
And it's nobody's fault
So I'll take the blame
Cause close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades
So whatever I am, well I'm just a shame

I was once told I didn't need luck
I was once told that I was smarter than I looked
I took her at her word every time she smiled
I took her at her word every time she lied
Now they ask me they say

What went wrong? You had her. You were so close.
What went wrong? You had her.

You were so close is my middle name.
And it's nobody's fault
So I'll take the blame
Cause close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades
So whatever I am, well I'm just

Ashamed of myself and there's nothing that I can do
Ashamed of myself and there's nothing that I can say
And I don't want your help, no, cause I'll always be this way

I was once told, that I could be king
I was once told that I could do anything
I took her at her word every time she smiled
I took her at her word every time she lied

What went wrong? You had it. You were so close.
What went wrong? You had her.

You were so close is my middle name.
And it's nobody's fault
So I'll take the blame
Cause close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades
So whatever I am, well I'm just a shame
