Now that the war is over and I've
Overstayed my welcome and my
Glass is sitting empty, I will
Show myself to the door

I've given up on flowers and their
Temporary powers... I've been
Coughing up for hours, still have
Nothing to show for it

Kill the hopeless romantic
The cynic remains and
Mock the one whose misfortune is covered in grey
Kill the hopeless romantic
The cynic remains and
Mock the one whose misfortune is covered in grey

The air is hanging heavy with the
Words you're throwing at me
Like the ashes that surround me
And I can't see any more

I shouldn't be this sober
I'm always looking over my shoulder
And I'm feeling so much colder since
The sun has gone away

Kill the hopeless romantic
The cynic remains and
Mock the one whose misfortune is covered in grey
Kill the hopeless romantic
The cynic remains and
Mock the one whose misfortune is covered in grey
Kill the hopeless romantic
The cynic remains and
Mock the one whose misfortune is covered in grey

So we've had some time and you had your time
And I've done my time, are we done this time?
Are we done this time? Oh no
Oh we've had some time and you had your time
And I've done my time, are we done this time?
Are we done this time? Oh no, oh

Kill the hopeless romantic
The cynic remains and
Mock the one whose misfortune is covered in grey
Kill the hopeless romantic
The cynic remains and
Mock the one whose misfortune is covered in grey
Kill the hopeless romantic
The cynic remains and
Mock the one whose misfortune is covered in grey
Kill the hopeless romantic
The cynic remains
