baseball project – jackie’s lament lyrics

if i ever get the chance i’ll let them know just how i feel.
i’d like to speak my mind but that just wasn’t in the deal.
it’s never easy being first to walk down any road.
i’d trade the glory just to crawl out from this heavy load.
you should hear the things they say behind my back
and when i turn the other cheek, they only sharpen their attack.

if i ever get the chance i’ll let them know just how i feel.
i’d like to speak my mind but that just wasn’t in the deal.
i run the race but now i find the race is running me.
i try to keep my cool but all this heat won’t let me be.
no matter how hard or well i played, i can tell you that i never had it made.

i only want to play the game.
i only want to make my name for others who never had the chance.
laid out like some sacrificial lamb,
a long and lonely road until i steal my way back home again.
if i ever get the chance i’ll let them know just how i feel.
i’d like to speak my mind but that just wasn’t in the deal.

and here’s to you, mr. robinson!
