the streets are littered with thousands of people that you've never met
names that you would thought you'd remember
knew you'd always forget
memories stripped from the past
the questions that never got asked
like a broken down car in an old parking lot
means nothing at all but it's that you got
and the moment is slippin' away
the answers you give aren't that great
it's like all the you do it's just old and they're new and they're lost

[piping solo]

all of your mistresses lied
to save your relationships, save you from time
when you slip into knowing that nothing is going to kill you faster than life
in the end you're just moments away
from the chances you thought you might take
it's like all that you do it just old and they're new and they're lost
and the words that you tried hard to say get caught in the noose that you made
it's like all that you do is just old and they're new and they're lost

in the end you're just moments away from the chances you thought you might take
it's like all that you do is just old and they're new and they're lost (x3)

[guitar solo]

(( all that you are is not
all that you forgot
hold on to what you got (x2))
in the end you're just moments away from the chances you thought you might take
it's like that all you do is just old and they're new and they're lost
the street is littered with thousands of people that you've never met
names that you thought you'd remember
knew that you'd always forget
(( all that you are is not
all that you was forgot (x3))
hold on to what you got (x4)

    General CommentI think that this song is about missed chances in life, things that you regret not doing.

    General CommentThe streets are littered with thousands, of people that you've never met, names that you thought you'd remember, knew you'd always forget, memories stripped from the past, the questions that never got asked, like a broken down car in an old parking lot,
    means nothing at all but it's that you got, and the moment is slippin' away, the answers you give aren't that great, it's like all the you do it's just old and they're new and they're lost

    the street is littered with thousands of people that you've never met names that you thought you'd remember
    knew that you'd always forget

    All that you are is not
    All that you was forgot
    Hold on to what you got

    All that you are is not
    All that you was forgot
    Hold on to what you got

    All that you are is not
    All that you was forgot
    Hold on to what you got

    Hold on to what you got
    Hold on to what you got
    Hold on to what you got
    Hold on to what you got
