How do you still live in your mother's house If you can't stand each other? How do you keep your lover's sacred vow If you don't trust one another? It took a long long time for me to figure it out Pay attention..I'm about to break it down Maybe you got your man, and maybe you got your plans None of it really matter anyway Whenever you try your best it ends up in a mess But I'll be loving you just the same How do you get through all the rainy days Without your umbrella? How do you take the ultra violet rays Without getting the melanoma? It took a long long time for me to figure it out Pay attention..I'm about to break it down Maybe you got your fans, maybe they understand None of it really matters anyway Whenever you try your best it ends up in a mess But I'll be loving you just the same There was a time when we were open When the world was such a magic place But now that magic spell has broken And that's a fact you have to face It's a cold and lonely place It took a long long time for me to figure it out Pay attention..I'm about to break it down Maybe you get your chance to do that special dance None of it really matters anyway Whenever you try your best it ends up in a mess And I'l be loving you just the same Maybe you got your man, I doubt he understands you What does it really matter anyway Whenever you try your best You're gonna make a great big mess And I'll be loving you just the same

Kids 04:00
Careful when they say to you One and one and one is two The people here they like to Play around with you for fun Don’t let em get you down For a moment make believe Everyone is who they seem And everything that we could never Find was lying around We never thought to look Behind the couch when that was all it took Kids are bound to fool around Please don’t let em’ get you down Right when I made the grade My parents came and saved the day Ladies first is often said Ladies gotten used to it But I was never one to finish Last in place my past Is often overlooked It happened so fast You've got to read the book Kids are bound to fool around Please don’t let em’ get you down Right when I made the grade My parents came and took me away And your proud face was gone I had to carry on I didn't know right from wrong I didn't know Kids are bound to fool around Please don’t let em’ get you down Right when I made the grade My parents came and saved the day When all I wanted them to say was What’s wrong? What’s wrong?

Everyone knows it's you Tell me it isn't true Call me a liar, set me on fire, tell me I'm wrong Everyone knows it's you Wa woo wa woo What are we supposed to do If everyone knows it you? Everyone's had enough Of all the romantic stuff Call me a sinner, a lonely beginner At the start of the game If everyone's had enough Where does that leave us? if everyone's had enough Of all of those late nights nights trying to Keep from crying you have to see our flame is dying We did our best to pass the test and get the weight up off our chest It's the burden that burns Talking about it only makes it worse Everyone's on their own With no direction home Point the finger and make me the singer of my favorite band If everyone 's on their own And everyone hates being alone Why are we on our own? Can somebody stay for a little while? Somebody who makes me laugh and smile Somebody who waits for that perfect moment to say What we always hope in our heart is true Everyone knows that you Now what are we supposed to do? Woo woo woo...

City's looking like rain throughout the evening I ain't leaving the house without a coat I'm in need of some time to keep my mind afloat Take a trip to the corner for some cigarettes Take a sip of some whiskey along the way Take a bit of this rain to wash my trouble away I really thought that we were doing okay You know you didn't have to take it that way Buy a ticket for one to see the cinema Pick up some popcorn and peanut M&Ms And when the movie is done I stay and watch it again Out in the street all the stores got gates in front of them And every window got a beautiful display I wanna break through the gates I'm gonna find a way I really thought that we were doing okay You know you didn't have to take it that way Couple nights all alone she went ahead, changed the locks on me Couple days on her own she got a guy, looks a lot like me But that's the way that it goes The story everyone knows Pretty soon I'm like all the other runaways Find food with my nose, ruined all my good clothes I should have known I should have known we gonna end up this way And in the end the storm drowns the city The lightning strikes too many miles away The thunder finally arrives, he's got nothing to say I really thought that we were doing okay You know you didn't have to take it that way I didn't know what to say, I's only trying a play, I didn't know You know you didn't have to take it that way
