Used To Be A Cop Lyrics

Used to be a cop but I got to be too jumpy
I used to like to party till I coughed up half a lung
But sometimes late at night I can hear the beat a
bumpin'
And I reach for my holster and I wake up all alone
I used to have a wife but she told me I was crazy
Said she couldn't stand the way I fidget all the time
Sometimes late at night I circle around the house
I look through the windows and dream that she's still
mine
I got scars on my back from the way my Daddy raised me
I used to have a family until I got divorced
It's too far to turn back so I just keep turning round
in circles
I used to be a cop but they kicked me off the force
Used to have a car but the bank came and took it
I'm paying for a house but that bitch lives in it now
With the children that we had who now won't even look
at me
Guess there's nothing left to lose, nothing matters
anyhow
Got a scar on my arm from that bullet that once grazed
me
I keep it in a box to remind me where I've been
That thin blue line was the only thing that could save
me
I used to have a badge but they made me turn it in
I used to play football but I wasn't big enough for
college
But I passed the entrance exam, first try and on my way
The Police Academy gave me the only thing I was ever
good at
But my temper and the shakes and they took that thing
away
Used to have a wife but she just couldn't deal with
The anger and tension that was welling inside me
Sometimes late at night I circle round the house
I look through the windows and I remember how it used
to be
