    (Annie Tate/Sam Tate/Dave Berg)

    I was coming to the end of a long long walk

    When a man crawled out of a cardboard box

    Under the E. Street Bridge

    Followed me on to it

    I went out halfway across

    With that homeless shadow tagging along

    So I dug for some change

    Wouldn't need it anyway

    He took it lookin' just a bit ashamed

    He said, You know, I haven't always been this way

    I've had my moments, days in the sun

    Moments I was second to none

    Moments when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do

    Like that plane ride coming home from the war

    That summer my son was born

    And memories like a coat so warm

    A cold wind can't get through

    Lookin' at me now you might not know it

    But I've had my moments

    I stood there tryin' to find my nerve

    Wondering if a single soul on Earth

    Would care at all

    Miss me when I'm gone

    That old man just kept hanging around

    Lookin' at me, lookin' down

    I think he recognized

    That look in my eyes

    Standing with him there I felt ashamed

    I said, You know, I haven't always felt this way

    I've had my moments, days in the sun

    Moments I was second to none

    Moments when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do

    Like the day I walked away from the wine

    For a woman who became my wife

    And a love that, when it was right,

    Could always see me through

    Lookin' at me now you might not know it

    But I've had my moments

    I know somewhere 'round a trashcan fire tonight

    That old man tells his story one more time

    He says

    I've had my moments, days in the sun

    Moments I was second to none

    Moments when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do

    Like that cool night on the E. Street Bridge

    When a young man almost ended it

    I was right there, wasn't scared a bit

    And I helped to pull him through

    Lookin' at me now you might not know it

    Oh, lookin' at me now you might not know it

    But I've had my moments
