Misery, loves company
When company, won't call
You're left with a mouthful of ten thousand wrong words
It's all I got
It's what I want

Sympathy, is everything
When everything, fell short
A textbook example of childhood in shambles
It's not what I want
But it's what I got

Eventually, I came to see
I was seeing things, all wrong
I've no expectations of people who gave in
My broken heart
Beats like a bomb

Life burns up faster than flames to a photograph.
A big stack of mishaps and so much time spent feeling bad
Despite all the beauty that drips right off a loved one's lips
A childlike reaction that starts and stops with selfishness

I try hard to stay awake
Long enough to see the day
When I can finally say
I did something right for a change

I turn to you, I turn to you
In hopes that I will improve
You turn to me, you turn to me
and I just lie there half asleep
You turn to him, you turn to him
Hoping he'll make you whole again
I turn to her, I turn to her
And in the end we all get burned

I try hard to stay awake
Long enough to see the day
When I can finally say
I did something right for a change

There's gotta be a change

Misery loves company
When company won't call
You're left with a mouthful of ten thousand wrong words
It's all I got
It's what I want
It's what I want

    General CommentI had always listened to this song and thought that it was..black birds fly faster than flames to a photograph also.

    marc biancci in one man that that truely does inspire me and listening to him tell his troubles through song makes me feel better.. lucid tranquility washes over you when you listen to her space holiday.

    and xoxo, panda makes me wanto dance, it's a pick me up from hsh :D
