nothing ever goes your way
outcast with fear in your eyes, with fear in your eyes
bring your knife to the drive-in and meet your destiny

and the sky turns black
angels are fighting for your soul
the sin is so overcoming, so tempting
nothing ever goes yoru way
and the girls laugh, the hate grows
you seclude yourself to darkness

but i'll still pray

i'll still pray for love to find your eyes burning with shame
and to end the bitternness that shakes your body

please let me love you one lie too many
now one lie is gone
you're falling, please let me love you

it never fails

how the lies taunt you
and how the bitterness shakes your body
closing your eyes so you cannot see His grace
everything's drawing near, and it rushes into hate
you've waited too long for it to disappear, to die again
let Him love you
don't wait for the evening sleep to end
hold His hand

    General Commentactually this song is about one of joshs friends that he watched fall deeper into a hole of substance abuse. This song is more of a prayer for him. the singing part that isnt in there says "and ill be there whenever you might need me. you might not know, but still my heart is beating. i drive my car, the radio is playing and soon you'll know" That part was actually written by joel but it says that although he might not agree with the other persons actions, he is still going to offer prayer and support.

    General Commentwhat are the singing parts so far this is what i hear:

    and i'll be here
    whenever you might need me
    i may not know (hang on one more day)
    everything, but we'll (nothing lasts forever)
    drive this car
    with the radio playing
    and soon you'll see

    and i need your words
    and i need you in my ears
    and time stands still

    and i'll drive you home
    and i'll try to hold your hand
    and time stands still

    i'm sure some of that is wrong, but that is what i hear. why is it not in the lyrics?
