There’s something wrong in her world today
She screams aloud but just won’t say
Never was her strongest point to, hurry up a wait

Now it’s all been said and done
A preacher’s daughter, a devil’s son
Her favorite color, a day alone
No smile on her face

And you…
Were wrong
And you…
Were wrong

‘Cause I don’t believe I failed you
Are your lies still coming true?
Do you still think the better days are gone?
‘Cause after all the things we’ve been through
Years so hard to lose
Give me a life of half love, half hope, half true
Or a lifetime burning with you

And all those things he’d said he’d got
Seemed so big but don’t mean much
Spends his days just praying
“God oh, feeling in this way”

No one saw the broken heart
Or even knew the day it started
No one thought he was good enough
Except for you…
Except for you…

I don’t believe I failed you
Are your lies still coming true?
Do you still think the better days are gone?
‘Cause after all the things we’ve been through
Years so hard to lose
Give me a life of half love, half hope, half true
Or a lifetime burning…yea

You’re gonna miss those things you’re giving away
You need to hold out, you’re gonna break down
You need to find your way back to the start
Who cares what they say?
It’s still your heart
Your heart…

Something wrong in her world today
The one she loves, she threw away
Still see it on her face, when she’s got a smile to fake
And all those things he said he’d got
He cashed them in and it just wasn’t enough
To buy back a star to replace the one he loved

And you…
Were wrong
And I…
Was wrong

‘Cause I don’t believe I failed you
Are your lies still coming true?
Do you still think the better days are gone?
‘Cause after all the things we’ve been through
Years so hard to lose
Give me a life of half love, half hope, half true
‘Cause I’ll take a life of half love, half hope, half true
Or a lifetime burning…

    General CommentHmmm... Never was the one to say what a song was when i thought that it didnt apply to me. But i did notice that in this song he uses some of the song titles to his other songs, or even reffers to them.
    Bad ass song though.

    General Commenti understand it now. its like the aftermath of all of the songs he has ever made. its like the end of it all. its the answer to the question he asks in all of his other songs. basically... will i be able to move on from this pain?
