on the bad days
we remember all of our fears
all your open ears

we think we live forever
and then we find out we're dead
all that you gave is now gone
it turns out it's not worth keeping
i can't do this anymore
some people aren't worth your time
what's on your mind baby (?)
believe me they're all your pain
don't bother sorting it out
and (?)
i never say what i mean
at least i mean what i say
(?)

all i ever wanted was to
love the one that came forth
all i ever wanter was to
love the one that got away

I'd take it up but i'm not even trying
i cannot tell you i'm already lying
we think we live forever
and then we find out one day
all that you gave is now gone
what was that anyway

on the bad days
we remember all of our fears
all your open ears

i wish i wasn't different
but they wouldn't be alive

i keep my eye on the prize
and the pen to the paper
always, always

no one understands you
no one understands

    General Commentpretty sure it's "i wish our lives were different, but they wouldn't be our lives," not "i wish i wasn't different..."
    anyway no clue on the meaning

    General Commenton the bad days
    we remember all of the fears
    all on open ears

    we think we live forever
    and then we find out we're dead
    all that you gave is now gone
    turns out it's not worth keeping
    i can't do this anymore
    some people aren't worth your time
    what's on your mind baby Mary
    believe me they're remember your name
    don't bother sorting it out
    and (?)
    i never say what i mean
    at least i mean what i say
    Don't you know how happy is it (?)

    all i ever wanted was to
    love the one that came before you
    all i ever wanted was to
    love the one that got away

    I'd take it up but i'm not even trying
    i cannot tell you i'm not even lying
    we think we live forever
    and then we find out one day
    all that you gave is now gone
    what was that anyway

    on the bad days
    we remember all of the fears
    all on open ears

    We wish our lives were different
    but they wouldn't be our lives

    i keep my eye on the prize
    and the pen to the paper
    always, always

    no one understands you
    no one understands

    ^ Pretty close :/ tried my best.

    General Commenton the bad days
    we remember all of the wrong fears
    all the open ears

    we think we live forever
    and then we find out we're dead
    all that you gave is now gone
    turns out it's not worth keeping
    i can't do this anymore
    some people aren't worth your time
    what's on your mind baby Mary
    Barely remember your name
    don't bother sorting our heart
    and getting me out of ?
    i never say what i mean
    at least i mean what i say
    the key to happiness is a (?) in the lead

    all i ever wanted was to
    love the one that came before you
    all i ever wanted was to
    love the one that got away

    I'd take it up but i'm not even trying
    i cannot tell you how long I've been lying
    we think we live forever
    and then we find out one day
    all that you gave is now gone
    what was that anyway

    on the bad days
    we remember all of the wrong fears
    all the open ears

    We wish our lives were different
    but they wouldn't be our lives

    i keep my eye on the prize
    and the pen to the paper
    always, always

    no one understands you
    no one understands

    General Commenton the bad days, we remember all the wrong things, all the old days.
    on the bad days, we remember all the wrong things, all your old ways.

    we think we live forever and then you find out one day,
    all that you gave is now gone.
    turns out it's not worth keeping,
    i can't do this anymore,
    some people aren't worth your time.

    what's on your mind may not fade,
    barely remember your name,
    the thunderstorms in our hearts,
    infinity at our feet.

    i never say what i mean,
    at least i mean what i say.
    the key to happiness is a slightly bad memory,
    all i ever wanted was to love the one that came before you,
    all i ever wanted was to love the one that got away.

    i said, "get up!" but i'm not even trying,
    i cannot tell you how long i've been lying.
    we think we live forever and then you find out one day,
    all that you gave is now gone,
    what was that anyway?


    on the bad days, we remember all the wrong things, all the old days.
    wish our lives were different but they wouldn't be our lives.

    i keep my eye on the prize
    and the pen to the paper
    always.
    always.

    no one understands you,
    no one understands.
