Square One

Had to find some higher ground

Had some fear to get around

You can't say what you don't know

Later on, won't work no more

Last time through, I hid my tracks

So well I could not get back

Yeah, my way was hard to find

Can't sell your soul for piece of mind

Square one, my slate is clear

Rest your head on me, my dear

It took a world of trouble, took a world of tears

It took a long time to get back here

Try so hard to stand alone

Struggle to see past my nose

Always had more dogs than bones

I could never wear those clothes

It's a dark victory

You won and you also lost

Told her you were satisfied

But it never came across

Square one, my slate is clear

Rest your head on me, my dear

It took a world of trouble, took a world of tears

It took a long time to get back here
