Swimming in the dark, we're bound to drift apart
And I just can't go on, pretending we're in love.
We play with matches in the rain but never learn
We try to light it but the fire never burns
You thought that love was just a casting call,
well its our turn to quit before the curtain falls
Don't need to pretend to love me, you don't need to pretend to want me,
You don't need to pretend to need me, we just never were meant to,
Am I wrong?
Lay down, lay down with your drunken fools,
I never thought you could be so cruel.
And all the rumours I heard were true,
You had another man in the room.
Peel off the bandages from the wound
I still have plenty of scars to prove.
I'm sick of coverin' up the truth,
So now I'm takin' it back from you.
From the start, drew a target on my heart,
So you can throw your poison darts.
You'll never kill, never kill.
Won't you stop, take a breath
Find a moment to reflect
On the pure and simple choices that we fail to see
From the worst to the best
From the east coast to the west
On a never-ending quest to end our misery
So cut to the chase, it's time to escape
Before it's too late
Yeah pick up the pace, catch up with fate
It's slipping away
So get off my road, no I won't be told
'Cause I got my own (definition of destiny)
Yeah take back control, and don't let it go,
And when the clock strikes 12, tell me where you gonna be?
Cleaning up the mess we've made or watching your TV?
And if you have to ask, then you don't have a clue,
There's snow in Arizona while they're bombing in Beirut!
I hope some day...when i'm dead and gone,
We learn to right...everything that's wrong,
With loving hands...turn sick to strong,
Our time will tell...if life goes on, on, on, on, on
When the storm hits your front door, with a roar you can't ignore,
Slapped my face, slammed the door
A dozen roses lay on the floor
I saw her friends and I was told
She blocked my number from her cell phone
You said we were meant to be
Now this obsession is killing me
Until I have a heart attack
I'll keep on trying to win you back
Alone at last,
I can't wait till we're alone at last
All i wanted was a second chance, second chance
To hold you in my arms at last
Vanities are only charity
And she makes donations at the Tiffany's,
Life is hard without a credit card to get by, get by
She sold her dreams for security
To a man that now she hardly ever sees
With a cold martini in her hand, she don't mind, don't mind
So throw all your luxuries aside
You can't take them with you when you die
Still when I look into your
Eyes are full of dollar signs
Oh, reach, into a pocketful of dreams
Oh, now, before they fall out of the seams
Today I walked down our old street
Past the diner where we'd meet
Now I dine alone in our old seats
The cold wind blows right through my bones
And I feel like I'm getting old
But I wish I was getting old with you
I held your hand when we took shelter from the rain
She laughed as we picked out our children's names
White sparrows fell from heaven and carried her away
Black arrows cut the strings of my heart, I kneel and pray
