Matt Maeson - Beggar's Song Lyrics




Jesus, come talk to me
I am but a blind mess, I'm wild and free
I know that I need us more than I need me
One more whisky, I'm wild and free

Oh but I'm a beat down washed up son of a bitch
I got one more cigarette and all my money is spent
But I'll be damned if I let it keep me down
Oh yeah I'm a beat down washed up son of a bitch
I got one more cigarette and all my money is spent
But I'll be damned if I let it keep me down

Oh my mother Mary, come walk with me
I'm on four drugs, I'm wild and free
I know that I fell less, less I knew me
Walk me through the darkness, come walk with me

Oh 'cause I'm a beat down washed up son of a bitch
I got one more cigarette and all my money is spent
But I'll be damned if I let it keep me down
Ay, yeah
Yeah I'm a beat down washed up son of a bitch
I got one more cigarette and all my money is spent
But I'll be damned if I let it keep me down
Yeah, yeah

You know that it's not over
It's okay to let yourself hurt
Swimming in the murky water
Why don't you come on out?
Ay, yeah
You know that it's not over
It's okay to let yourself hurt
Swimming in the murky water
Why don't you come on out?
Ay, yeah

We sing a beat down washed up beggar song
And we sing it even louder when the money is gone
Because we'll be damned if I let it keep us down
Ay, yeah
Oh yeah I'm a beat down washed up son of a bitch
I got one more cigarette and all my money is spent
But I'll be damned if I let it keep me down
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You know that it's not over
It's okay to let yourself hurt
Swimming in the murky water
Why don't you come on out?
Ay, yeah
You know that it's not over
It's okay to let yourself hurt
Swimming in the murky water
Why don't you come on out?

We sing a beat down washed up beggar song
And we sing it even louder when the money is gone
Because we'll be damned if I let it keep us down
Ay, yeah
Oh yeah I'm a beat down washed up son of a bitch
I got one more cigarette and all my money is spent
But I'll be damned if I let it keep me down

    Why do music videos these days just have to be so weird? This song is amazing lyrically, and matt’s voice is superb! But the video is just bad. Plain and simple. I would have had a guy down on his luck/homeless walking around and kind of following his transition into maybe landing a job or getting help. Boo for the video, yay for the song!

  8. Expired Cheerios

    honesly, you dont get music like this anymore.

  62. Hunter Frydenlund

    MATT! I love your music man. It’s raw, it’s got meaning, and it’s just great music. Pumped for April 5th. I can tell through your songs you got hurt. I watched the “Cringe” music video and it hurts to know you went through rejection, especially if it was from a church. And Hallucinogenics kinda hints that you’re not Christian. I just wanted to say that Christianity can be broken, especially through the church because it’s broken people coming together. I know you’ve got hurt, but whatever you did, I don’t Cringe. And neither does Jesus for you. He loves you dude. Hope you see that.

  94. Gideon Cripps

    Hey Matt, I just wanted to let you know how much this song means to me. I've been feeling really suicidal lately, and every day I would wake up and it would be the first thing that I would think of. A few days ago I was woken up by my insomnia at 5:00 am after a late night, and I couldn't sleep so I decided to listen to some of your songs because you're my favorite artist. I saw that you put out this song and it was the first one I listened it. And it's beautiful, man. It brought me to tears and I just sat at my computer listening and crying. Some of it's lyrics seemed to be speaking directly to me, especially the line "it's not over. It's okay to let yourself hurt". It's exactly what I needed right now. You helped me out of that pit. This song will most likely always bring me to tears. Thank you, Matt. Thank you

    But I'ma be damned if I let it keep me down
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
