lyrics

I was born far from the city back in 1985
Many times I've seen hope come and go
Then gone to hell and back

Still I know that someday baby
I'll lay all my demons down
But this world now keeps on spinning round
And carrying us apart

I've been walking on these dead streets
Looking for some kind of light
Finding nothing in this shithole but
The guilt of bailing out

When the game's been fought and you think
"Nothing's gonna bring me down"
Rest assured time kills like rivers flow
And leaves you barely alive

Sing it… OH OH OH
´fore you end up dead and buried
There's something you should know
Sing it… OH OH OH
Never give your heart to someone
If you want to keep it whole

Ain’t no sunshine in the morning
When you’re still stuck in this town
Those who drift alone for far too long
Are never coming back

I’ve got no trust in you darling
But let's pretend for tonight
That these worn out souls ain’t made of stone
And we’ll be alright

Sing it… OH OH OH
´fore you end up dead and buried
There's something you should know
Sing it… OH OH OH
Never give your heart to someone
If you want to keep it whole

Sing it…
Why do all the faces we love have to go ?
