Hey you
You should do what you wanna do
Go see someone new
I know that you want to
I said, I said all I can say
I turned it inside out and I failed to make you stay
You, you are in such a hurry
You couldn't have run any faster
And I don't wanna sink any lower

And now as time moves on tell me
Who are those tears for?
And when you're making eyes with the pretty girls
Who do you die for?

The only thing, the only thing I ever wanted
Was for you to be brave
Was for you to be strong
I know it's a tall order and I know
I push too hard it's because I know
That life ain't gonna give you a free card
You wanna stand still and I'm getting ready to jump
You ain't got no shoes to fill and I don't ever wanna stop

Oh, but I love you
I love you regardless
Oh, I love you, I love, I love
I love you regardless

I would've taken on the fight
I would've fought through the night
I would've burnt down your old school
I would've slapped your dad around
For every time he made you feel bad about yourself
My love would be like wings on your shoulders
Soar you up into the sky
Where we would hide among the melancholy clouds

But you are in such a hurry
You couldn't have run any faster
And I don't wanna sink any lower
Any lower
Any lower
Can't love you any lower
Can't make a fool of myself no more
While you're out there doing your thing
While you're out there doing what you wanna do
So go on and do it
You go see that new girl
Find new happiness
And ask no questions
But tell me
Who, who do you seem to be dying for
Why, what are you crying for
Tell me
Who, who are you dying for
Seems it was my heart you tore apart
So you go do what you wanna do
