It's never that,
It's never quite that innocent
So take it back,
All the words you thought you said, but never had
You never had,
To say a word, don't say a word

Just hold me close,
Hold me close and let me go and then you'll know
You need to know exactly what you're letting go
You're letting go,
So walk away and take it slow

Is there anyone out there who is listening to anything?
Is there anyone out there who can take my hand?

So come on, come on
What are you waitin' for?
Waitin' for your life to end, to begin again
No, you get back up and you try again

You never had,
You never had a fighting chance,
So watch your back,
Somehow we always manage to remember that
Under attack,
If you lose a friend, oh you pick up the slack

Whoever said
That distance brings you closer, they must not have known
That when you're out of sight, you're out of mind and all alone
And when you're on your own,
You hate to think that you should've known

Is there anyone out there who is listening to anything?
Is there anyone out there who can take my hand?

So come on, come on
What are you waitin' for?
Waitin' for your life to end, to begin again
No, you get back up and you try again

So could ya come on, come on
What are you waitin' for?
Waitin' for your life to end, to begin again
No, you get back up and you try again

What are you waitin' for?
What are you waitin' for?

Come on, come on
What are you waitin' for?
Waitin' for this life to end, to begin again
No, you get back up and you try again

So could ya come on, come on
What are you waitin' for?
Waitin' for your life to end, to begin again
No, you get back up, get back up

And you try it again
You try it again
Try it again
