I Didn't Come Here to Lose Lyrics

Dug through the ashtray
Under the cushions
Shook all my blue jeans
Spent all day looking

For enough change
To get the rent paid
Just so I can hang
Here another week

Yeah, I've been passed on
Shown the way out
Worn out these steel toes
Kicking some doors down

Just need that one chance
Don't tell me that I can't
I've gotta do it, man
Ain't got no plan B

I don't wanna go home
And give in to all these people
That say I can't do it
I don't wanna prove 'em all right

I'll take my licks and keep on
Getting up swinging
Is that all you got? Bring it
So what I'm beat up and I'm bruised
I didn't come here to lose

Give me your heck no's
You'll never make it
All those cynical
Back handed praises

I'll turn them into
Something I can use
A little rocket fuel
For my shooting star

I don't wanna go home
And give in to all these people
That say I can't do it
I don't wanna prove 'em all right

I'll take my licks and keep on
Getting up swinging
Is that all you got? Bring it
So what I'm beat up and I'm bruised
I didn't come here to lose, no

I don't wanna go home
And give in to all these people
No, I don't wanna prove 'em all right
Ain't going back home, no, no

I'll take my licks and keep on
Getting up swinging
Is that all you got? Bring it
So what I'm beat up and I'm bruised
So what I'm beat up and I'm bruised
I didn't come here to lose, no no
I didn't come here to lose
Oh, ain't no turning back

Jimmy Wayne was born Oct. 23, 1972, in Cleveland County, N.C. With a stable home life, Wayne went back to high school and worked his way through community college, earning an associate's degree in criminal justice. After working in the North Carolina prison system, Wayne moved to Nashville, practiced guitar until becoming proficient and put his life experience to music. Tracy Byrd cut one of his songs, "Put Your Hand in Mine," in 1998. His first single, "Stay Gone," was inspired by his sister Patricia, who was having marital troubles at the time. She told Wayne that everything would be better if her husband would just stay gone. Wayne released his self-titled debut album on DreamWorks Nashville in 2003. His recorded songs like; "You Are"- a song about his wife who's everything to him, "Paper Angels"- a Christmas song about lost kids and school troubles, and "I Love You This Much" - about a father's love to his son and the son is the one who loves his dad and the dad thinks he's hated. Awesome songs. Check 'em Out. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
