This old place won't be the same
when the gravestones start to sing your name.
Got a lot of bad habits on the way to fame.
This old place won't be the same.
This old place won't be the same.

The mad mad world won't start to spin
until we learn to speak in unison.
Even in church I found a way to sin.
The mad mad world won't start to spin.
The mad mad world won't start to spin.

And I don't care anymore.

Here we are at the edge of the world.
I've got a six-string heart filled with diamonds and girls.
Late night drives we'll be getin' to god knows where.
I don't care.

Where we are or where I've been
I've got broken bones I'm torn from limb to limb.
I'd give anything just to see your ghost
as I drive from the East to the West coast.

And nothing matters now.
I've got no light to guide me home.
I'll learn to live without the name on the gravestone.

The days go by one by one.
I scream your name from my lungs.
Your spirits here in these songs.
The days go by one by one.
I count the days one by one.

The nights are lost without you here.
Oh, god its only been a year.
Keep waiting for you to reappear.
The nights are lost without you here.
It feels so strange without you here.

And I don't care anymore.

Here we are at the edge of the world.
I've got a six-string heart filled with diamonds and girls.
Late night drives we'll be getin' to god knows where.
I don't care.

Where we are or where I've been
I've got broken bones I'm torn from limb to limb.
I'd give anything just to see your ghost
as I drive from the East to the West coast.


And nothing matters now.
I've got no light to guide me home.
I'll learn to live without the name on the gravestone.
