When I was a boy
I sold a lie
Sold it to you
And all I wanted to say
"I wish you were here,
I wish it would rain now"

I'm hearing alarms
Ring in my ears
I'm caught in the sound now
The one thing I know
I couldn't recall
till I heard you say...

Put on your brakes
Lord, if I could just get through today
Put on your brakes
Sorry, but I just can't walk away

(Yeah)
This is your life
(Don't you cry)
'Cos it's alright
(As we dance)
For the last time

Sat on the road
Watching the cars
Sink in the reservoirs I know
It's just like you said
When all of the world
Is spinning inside your head and now

If I could run
The miracle mile
I'd run as the city's burning down
The one thing I know
I couldn't recall
Till I heard you say

Put on your brakes
Lord, if I could just get through today
Put on your brakes
Sorry, but I just can't walk away

(Yeah)
This is your life
(Don't you cry)
'Cos it's alright
(As we dance)
For the last time
(Yeah)
Come on, come on, saying

(Yeah)
This is your life
(Don't you cry)
'Cos it's alright
(As we dance)
For the last time
(Yeah)
You know, you know, yeah

(Yeah)
This is your life
(Don't you cry)
'Cos it's alright
(As we dance)
For the last time
(Yeah)
