I'd like to break you
just like the dusk into the dawn
Because you shot it,
you shot down the sun
I'd kill to take you,
out for the last ride of your life
and just leave it as
the one that never was

Cause' I am
high & driving
you kept, lying lying
don't step one more time
into this life
no not again

So long to waiting in doubt
Go on and turn around cause
I don't owe you a damn thing
I woke up and realized

Now we turn around,
whisper someone save us,
turn around,
whisper someone save us now,
this won't last forever,
saying no just not again,
saying no just no again.

So let's give in instead of starting
over again,
before I do something I will regret
Sentimentality sees the failure of feeling
when you starve for mercy

Cause' I am high and driving,
you kept lying lying
don't step one more time into this life
no not again

So long to waiting in doubt
go on and turn aroun cause
I don't owe you a damn thing
I woke up and realized
this is exactly what I didn't need

A piece of coal wrapped in gold
with a silver side of cyanide
you can laugh till you take it down
just remember your
last sight

I've been waiting like a fool in the rain,
for a taxi driver with something to say
Gravity has got me wishing I never fell on you
I've been drinking like a sailor on leave
like a magician with no tricks up his sleeve
don't tell me lindenhurst lies
(repeat this 3 times)

    General Commenti think i like this version better than the one that is on the new cd. ..well i like a lot of parts of the new song, but the chorus is better in this one. and the end is better on this guy

    General Commentthey played a show down here at some vfw hall back in february 2006. seriously, strike fire fall were some of the nicest, funniest, most down-to-earth guys ive ever met, and they played a killer show for such shitty acoustics. they work hard and care about what they do and i really hope they get huge, they deserve all the exposure and success they can get. :)
