Nice Guy, Finished Last

Ken Squires

I've always been the nice guy.
People used as the door mat in life.
Walking all over, while leaving me behind.
Always doing what I think others should do.
Always trying to be what others should be.
Holding the doors, letting everyone go first.
Being told I'm not right for this job.
While dying a little inside.
Smiling through everything as if nothing was wrong.
Life continues to pass me by, even on this day.
Always over hear people say "oh that's so nice of you"
But always feeling as if they're glad they didn't have to do what I just did.

When I don't do those things.
You talk shit about me to your friends.
As I'd be the psycho in the corner.
The one that nobody chooses to talk to.
But you seem to have me figured out.

As I continue to be the nice guy who finished last.
I'm also that guy who the world turns around and blasts.
