I haven't got a clue. Hardly know a thing about you and you're still trying to figure out yourself. You've been looking for so long but the places are all wrong. I'm sorry I can't help you out. You don't know everything there is to know about me. There is more to life than we might think. I don't know everything there is to know about you. I don't feel like I've figured out a thing. I don't know where to start now that we are falling apart. I need someone to blame besides myself. You been looking for so long but the places are all wrong. I'm sorry I can't help you out.

Get out of my way. I've got nothing to say to you. Red letter on the wall. I've got no words at all to say to you. You know what you did. You're no little kid. I shouldn't have to tell you. You do it all the time. This time you crossed the line for the last time. I saw you last week walking down the street with my friends. They looked at you strange as if you were deranged. They think you're crazy. Red letter on the wall. Got no words at all To say to you.

I know that I can't do anything right. Will I ever satisfy? I tried to change my ways but my ways won't let me. Do you ever think that you'll forgive me? I tried to change my ways but my ways won't let me change. I know I'm not that kind. I let you fall behind. How many times will I say that I'm sorry? I wish I may. I wish I might. I wish on the first star I see. I wish I may. I wish I might. I wish on the first star I see tonight. I tried to put the pieces back together. I know you're holding back on me. I tried to change my ways but my ways won't let me. I don't want to make you cry again. Now I made you cry. I made you cry again.

I'm having trouble sleeping. Can't get you off my mind. Want to wake up next to you. You want me to. Because I can read your mind. I lie awake another night with thoughts of you stuck in my mind. I'll be right there to help you through. Just tell me what I'm supposed to do because I can't spend another sleepless night. Can't get you out of my head. I'm lying spinning in my bed. Every time I close my eyes I see your smile. Been lying here awhile. I lie awake another night with thoughts of you stuck in my mind. I'll be right there to help you through. Just tell me what I'm supposed to do because I can't spend another sleepless night

Do you think that you're the best or do you cover up your mess of pain inside? We've all been screwed. No need to hide just who you are. Everything will take it's toll. On you it's always ten fold. We'll never know. You won't confess because you'll just cover up your mess. Do you think that you're the best or do you cover up your mess of running scared? No turning back because you're afraid you'll fall through the cracks and everything will take it's toll. On you it will be ten fold. You'll never know. You won't confess.

This time of year everything seems so unclear. When it's cold and dark you'll find outside same old report as the world will run it's course and there's no use standing on the side. Another season comes to end and I know that you still are my friend. We can do everything and more. Give me a call when you get bored, no matter what it's for. Everything is changing. Now I can't change your mind even though everything I say is right. You'll find the answer if you look deep down inside. And you know I can see it in your eyes.

Left to rot. I won't waste my time when moving on is all that matters. Catching up and soon I'll pass you by picking up the pieces scattered. Life is short and it may seem uphill. And you know I've got a ways to go but I'm plodding through no thanks to you. And the salt's put in my wounds. Walking away I can hear you screaming. Yelling lies I've heard before. Glass is crashing and so are we now. And we're walking out the door.

I want to spend the day with you. Do you feel the same? We'll tell our friends we're fine that everything's okay And if we fall we'll be all right as long as we don't put up a fight. So for now enjoy the ride. I know how you feel inside. No one cares when we're together we can sit and do whatever Everything is fine. I want to spend the night with you. Do you feel the same? We'll tell ourselves we're fine that everything's okay And if we try to get it right it'll take more than one night. For now enjoy the ride. I know how you feel inside.

I know I should leave get in my car but i still have more time. The clock is moving. I should be too. Alarm will go off soon. I know that I'm not lazy. I know you think I'm crazy but we're just having fun. We do it every Tuesday. And now it's getting late but this habit is hard to break. And soon and way too soon I'll pay the price. Before too long the morning break. The damage done, it's much too late and now the time has come to pay the price. Watching movies, drinking beer. Maybe I'll crash right here. The clock is moving. Now I can't move. I know I should leave soon.

What's left to say that's been said before or things you need to hear once more? Because words won't effect the way that you feel or change what is real. Everyday I'm throwing away. I won't live in yesterday. It's all talk because the thought of your eyes still leaves me tongue tied. I'm moving on like I said before. I'm glad you walked right out the door because there's still time to start anew. With that I say, fuck you.

Sometimes you have to take some chances to make things better than before. And when you fall, you know, that's when you pick yourself up off the floor and rebound. I'm falling fast. I can't slow down. Life slips away. I'm falling fast. I can't slow down. I know I'm moving much to fast and when try to put the breaks on I accidentally hit the gas.

Just when you thought things were to end things turn around and come again. On the verge of yielding to things beyond control. Once more music if my friend. As competition for time grows it gets harder to control. What once was simple is now complex. We just keep on trying to do our best and maybe it will work out this time.
