In all my life and all my years,
We’d take it till it hurts and wait until it heals
And watch the night dry up and take a lonely ride
Or when I’m going into work if you’re right

Oh, take my place
A stand up kid
I was thinking all about it
Cause I knew where we’d been
He shifted in his chair
With a sheer delight
It took me weeks for these words
Weeks to admit I was right

And there’s a lot of everything
Or oh, till it grows
Oh, till it grows

And there’s a lot of everything

March till you fall
And listen to it fade away
Fumble at the door
While the telephone rings, the telephone rings

And has it been a week yet? Fine.
Linger in the revelry
It happens to us all otherwise
Turn while we run but act like you need it

She says we’ve got one foot out the door
She says we’ve got one foot out the door
She says we’ve got one foot out the door

And all my life, all my years,
We waited till its over and waited till we’re here
We see the car drive up and the kids playing nice
Be sure to rest up for the night

And all my love and all my tears,
Yes, you made a difference
And yes, you made it clear
We watched the sky light up
And shake from side to side
It took me years for these words
Years to admit I was right

And so it goes for everything
And oh, so it goes
Oh, so it goes

And so it goes for everything

March till you fall
And listen to it fade away
Fumble at the door
While the telephone rings, the telephone rings

And has it been a week yet? Fine.
Linger in the revelry
It happens to us all otherwise
Turn while we run but act like you keep it
One place

We said she’s got one foot out the door
We said she’s got one foot out the door
We said she’s got one foot out the door

We said she’s got one foot out the door
We said she’s got one foot out the door
We said she’s got one foot out the door

We said she’s got one foot out the door
We said she’s got one foot out the door
We said she’s got one foot out the door
