This car of life takes low roads and high roads
The highs are high, and the lows are low
No matter where it goes, the destination's the same
Cause the brakes are out and the tank is full
But don't you dare bail out, this life is worth living
Though the hours are long and the pay is low
You're my everything, and I won't soon forget it
So don't tell me that you've no place to go

Cause I've been there babe
Once or twice
Maybe five or six times
Maybe forty or so
Don't leave us here
It's dark and cold
We need you so bad
And it's all that we know

I died a few times, didn't learn my lesson
Until it wasn't me that I found depressing
If you fall from the top, know that I'm here to catch you
You feel sick inside, the same way I do
And though there are times
that we feel like dying
Our hearts inside are so sick of crying
You mean so much to all of us standing
Around your bed in this hospital room

I've been there babe
Once or twice
Maybe five or six times
Maybe a hundred or so
Don't leave us here
Lonely and crying
We need you so bad
And it's all that we know

I said "I live for you"
I didn't mean it, forget it
Said "I'd die for you"
I didn't mean it, forget it
Said "I'd kill for you"
I didn't mean it, forget it
I'd kill gods for you
And don't you ever forget that too

I've been there babe
Once or twice
Maybe five or six times
Maybe thousands or so
Don't leave us here
We can't have you dying
We need you so bad
And it's all that we'll ever know

    General CommentThis is a rough one.
    'Beautiful Wonderful' tried killing herself with pills, and I sat with her at the hospital for hours. To quote Brand New, It wasn't enough that it happened, I gotta turn around and write a song just to remind myself how bad it sucked. And on top of all that, she forgot that too, and now I have to live with killing gods for no good reason.
