I've spent all my life just carrying on
And for every right thing
I've done ten have been wrong
It's not that I'm bragging for the sake of a song
But life looks much better in perspective
Your eyes look at me
from near and fom far
Ten thousand miles and you're still where you are
Another brass rail in another old bar
i'm better at dreaming than living

For every hello
there's a thousand good byes
And leaving is harder when I look in your eyes
You've got to believe me
I'm not telling lies
That for every hello
ther's a thousand good byes

The years slip away
like the spring melts the snow
And I'm older and wiser than you'll ever know
And if you believe that
then it's time I should go
Cause I'm just as confused
and more twisted
And things keep on changing
for better or worse
And rhymes just get harder
with every new verse
And to say that I love you sounds way to perverse
Cause I'm getting on the bus
in the morning

I could give it all to you
But I can't control the things that I do
And I don't know what to say
Cause the sun's coming up and I know
I can't stay
