wait outside its cold as death in here it took so long we almost disappeared and now im stuck inside remembering memories babe i got a heart thats made of gold yet im feeling bought and sold, yes i am it took too long without it making sense you cant get nowhere by sitting on a fence and wherever you may roam you run into circumstance babe i got a heart thats made of gold yet im feeling bought and sold and the same old way is getting old ain't that the truth you run so far away is now your home you starve yourself so you can sharpen your bones and now im kickin' down the road and skipping stones babe i got a heart thats made of gold yet im feeling bought and sold and the same old way is getting old ain't that the truth

Baby 03:30
i just keep messing up i try to win but i got no luck and it just brings me down this race I'm in i go round and round but she loves me anyway yeah she loves me anyway and she says baby, everything will be ok baby, everything will be ok I've lied i cheat i steal I've numbed myself so i can't feel sometimes i wanna chuck it all throw it all away put up some walls but she hears me when i call yeah she hears me when i call and she says baby, everything will be ok baby, everything will be ok and i thought i knew what i would do but i don't know at all mistakes were made and id do em all again just don't let me break say it'll be ok it might not be worth the pain i screw it up and do it again i hang my head in shame the same old song the same refrain but she loves me anyway yeah she loves me anyway and she says baby, everything will be ok baby, everything will be ok
3.
Friends 03:44
well i said i do crying over it just wont do when its the truth and youre acting like it aint the same cause i knew pouring my heart over you wouldnt soothe and we be crafting us both up some pain we'd be ringing our hands once again ashamed that we both never win but i still dont think we can be friends where did we leave off? sounds like you still got that cough you still act so tough and you see things that others dont see like will i be enough? what if someone comes and calls your bluff when things get rough but youre just as sweet as can be youve always been the sweetest to me i know that when this thing ends itll hurt too much to be your friend well now my dear where do we go from here cause it aint that clear decisions got you furrowing your brow so lets just hang out forget about the worries and doubts let em disappear we'll be in this moment right now we'll figure it out somehow maybe then our hearts will mend but i still dont we can be friends yeah i still dont think we can be friends itll hurt too much to be your friend

The Light 03:41
just your silhouette against the wall we watch the shadows fall ran down through the streets shouting your name you never answered my call now its so cold and i don't want to be alone tonight you took the light, the light, the light, the light from me what does it all mean if it don't mean a thing to you have you forgotten everything or you just don't give a damn bout what we've been through i guess it easier to bury things and turn a blind eye you took the light, the light, the light, the light from me when will this be something that you don't frown upon i gave you everything now and now i got nothing to stand on now I'm too empty i got no more tears to cry you took the light, the light, the light, the light from me
5.
the way that we used to be around town looking back on memories brings me down they said we're the lucky ones but wait what does that mean i could never get it together long enough you always did your best to shut me up everything goes and comes back again though it may seem like I'm all buttoned up I'm apart at the seams and looking a little rough honey i don't want you back i ain't gonna lie our train went off the tracks we were both too afraid to fly honey i don't want you back I'm not even gonna try maybe someday my my in the sweet by and by there ain't no one to blame it just is you can hide everything inside a kiss the way that you cant breath the sway like a dream

us city kids never got season passes sometimes my world felt like molasses out in the streets running from class and i got the feeling that it'll never last too many of us not enough of them you hung around, we became friends we'd listen to folks tell us how it was then we'd borrow & steal never get back what we'd lend then you'd come around, holding up your mirror and I'd run away covered in fear we'd make it til midday in second gear til we got chased away told get out of here well i loved you madly never thought it'd ever ever end so badly but time wears you down, whoa time wears you down but i feel like our love will always be around we built a cardboard shack in a lane way that one spot in the park was the place to stay we'd meet at your house, it always smelled the same til one day you were gone, you just moved away then you'd come around, holding up your mirror and I'd run away covered in fear we'd make it til midday in second gear til we got chased away told get out of here well i loved you madly never thought it'd ever ever end so badly but time wears you down, whoa time wears you down but i feel like our love will always be around

Warfare 03:53
baby i got your back when they come to attack we'll set up a barricade to keep them all away if they open fire ill lay down right beside ya plan our escape while we're tossing hand grenades every time you open your eyes i want it to be me you see every time you say good bye i don't want it to be to me if they start a war we'll give em what they're looking for stand our ground and aim for right between the eyes when we have a child or more than one to drive us wild we'll start our own army a family infantry every time you open your eyes i want it to be me you see every time you say good bye i don't want it to be to me the lives we're saving we're sparing casualties while the wars keep raging on air, land & sea yeah you know it ain't easy you know how hard it can be the way things are going when we're only trying to get us some peace every time you open your eyes i want it to be me you see every time you say good bye i don't want it to be to me

whoa! 05:02
load me up like a pistol pull my trigger and watch me go we got some things to do before the show it gets so cold here in the winter let's hold each other so we can keep warm i like having you round on my arm it's not pity that I'm feeling or regret that we carried on I'm just amazed that we lasted this long and it goes, and you go, and i go and we go, whoa! well I'm not the easiest to get along with i cant even stand myself some times you've put up with so much, so many times one thing led to another it wasn't planned to go that way sometimes these things happen no matter what you say it's not pity that I'm feeling or regret that we carried on I'm just amazed that we lasted this long and it goes, and you go, and i go and we go, whoa! bridge: well lets light some fires and howl at the moon don't ever get tired of it cause its over so soon we all got regrets, yeah i got some too but ill never regret ever loving you baby you know that's the truth well its been a long time coming and i don't know when its gonna end we've both given so much lets not pretend i get so confused when you tear it all apart but there ain't no confusion here in this heart it's still not pity that I'm feeling or regret that we carried on honey I'm still amazed that we lasted this long and it goes, and you go, and i go and we go, whoa!

I'm falling once again, I'm falling out of my head once again I'm calling out to the edge I'm calling it never ends it never ends, never ends why cant you see that its always the same why cant you see i got no one to blame just me, only me we're stalling when it begins we're stalling bucking the trends bargaining, in the bargain bin now I'm standing on a high wire falling as we get higher to heavens reach, we're in heavens reach why can't you see that its always the same why can't you see i got no one to blame just me, only me I'm falling once again, I'm falling out of my head once again
