In the dark part of this city, past the downtown metropolitan
The drunks are out in numbers, and I'm reminiscing on past friends
The night, it has its walkers, an awkward glance the other way
This hopelessness, as it were, is overbearing so I pray

I just want to

Get myself out of here (a house out in the country)
To love and to be loved (so girl won't you please love me)
I'm out here in the cold (oh Father won't you save me)
It's your world, it's not mine (You go ahead and break me)

There's a rumor out in this town and I swear to God it's all a lie
I'm out searching for truth now, dead men do it, why can't I
Well darling are you tired, I promise you I can relate
This whole wide world's on fire and most everyone wants to escape

I just want to

Get myself out of here (a house out in the country)
To love and to be loved (so girl won't you please love me)
I'm out here in the cold (oh Father won't you save me)
It's your world, it's not mine (You go ahead and break me)

I wanna live my life like no other live's been lived
I wanna love with a love that all the greatest lovers lacked
I wanna sing with such pride, all despite my terrible pitch
To a song that whispers LOUD, "If you've run from home you can still come back"

I just want to

Live well
Love well
Die well
And all in all, just do it all for You
