lyrics

Got a reason to feel
Alone like another lover
You got the rise and the fall
Built you up, you had your time then nothing
God I’m feeling poor

You walk around for a while
In a strange town just looking puzzled
You lost a kid in the war
And you don’t know want you should be fighting for
It was never over, you feel
But you know that I am now
As strange as this old town

And I won’t be a friend
And you won’t say a thing
With a little guilt lingering
Longer it seems
Made you call, then just let it ring
But don’t wait for it to reappear or come through
It never was that cool

I’d tuck you under my arm
And protect you like a little animal
Best get to racing you home
There’s a plane you got to get back on
I had a feeling you’d call
But you left nothing at all
Mourn for a feeling gone
Eyes of the loneliest one
Hide cause of shameful mind changing

Oh, it’s long gone, in short
I’m feeling free but it’s not so good
Never can escape
Those worst mistakes
When at first, seems it could be great
But spare no thought at all for whose heart it might break
Or whose mind could change

You wake yourself with a cold,
Hard look into the mirror
Got it all from your own
Advice swimming through your head
You could be giving me hell
Oh but you’re doing well
Always fighting it too
Don’t want to find that in you
I got to fight one too
