Lyrics: You Oughta Know Where I’m Coming From

What if I said I would break your heart?
What if I said I have problems that made me mean?
What if I knew I would just rip your mind apart?
Would you let me out?

Maybe you can stop before you start.
Maybe you can see that I just may be too crazy to love.
If I told you solitude fits me like a glove,
Would you let me out?

You ought to know where I’m coming from
How I was alone when I burned my home
And all of the pieces were torn and thrown
You should know where I’m coming from

What if I said I was just too young?
What if I said I was built on bricks of carelessness and crumbs?
What if I said I’d be gone before I could come?
Would you let me out?

You ought to know where I’m coming from
How I was alone when I burned my home
And all of the pieces were torn and thrown…
You should know where I’m coming from

Your sought out ways
My own, my own
But you turn me away from my low blows
Boy, you should’ve known

You ought to know where I’m coming from
How I was alone when I burned my home
And all of the pieces were torn and thrown…
You should know where I’m coming from

You ought to know where I’m coming from
How I was alone when I burned my home
And all of the pieces were torn and thrown…
You should know where I’m coming from
