What have I done this time
something burdening my mind
I'm getting older, 'getting closer,
maybe just getting by..
We all just keep on giving
you don't know the difference;
think that's living
God I wish I knew a bit less sometimes...

Pretty pastels, the skirt you bought at TJ Maxx..
You're standing in the doorway, beaming without knowing the way
and I don't take you down the alleyways you though you'd seen enough of.
But I'll be with you, you know..
you need to make those mistakes but don't make them on your own
'cause I'll be with you, you know.
and when you fall down just hit the ground running
and I'll be running with you running with you running with you...

And each day you wake up; a new disguise and what you see internalized
I wonder if our time this far is added to your repertoire
your act is a way of wasting time
you become those you criticize
I don't know how to find where the truth lies...

And guess what the paper is gonna say when you wake..
If the loss of life seems limitless, just block what you can and bear what you take..
we're just two people trying to find a little meaning in these troubled times --
don't criticize don't criticize us.

But I'll be with you, you know..
you need to make those mistakes but don't make them on your own
'cause I'll be with you, you know.
and when you fall down just hit the ground running
and I'll be running with you running with you running with you...

I'll be with you, you know..
go ahead and make those mistakes but don't make them on your own
'cause I'll be with you, you know.
and when in doubt I test my luck;
I'm not afraid to self-destruct;
just take me with you, take me with you, take me with you...
