You wanted everything. You couldn't have it all.
You spent the life you never had climbing up the walls.
They wouldn't let you in. You wouldn't cut the cord.
You've only got yourself to blame. You know you could've had it.

Let's go to the richest town. Let's see what life's about girl.
You've only got one chance to make a move this time.
You're about to realize what life is all about girl.
This is your final warning.

I want to show you everything.
You can pretend it's real.

So after everything you're gonna give it up.
Just drop it all because it turns out that you have bad luck.
I know your state of mind. You're not the quitting kind.
You'll pick it up before you know you had something to find.

Let's go to the richest town. Let's see what life's about girl.
You've only got one chance to make a move this time.
You're about to realize what life is all about girl.
This is your final warning.

I want to show you everything.
You can pretend it's real.

I want to show you everything.
You can pretend it's real.

And you know you can't beat time. You can't do everything at once.
And you know you can't beat time. You can't do everything at once.
And you know you can't beat time. You can't do everything at once.
And you know you can't beat time.

You've really got it down. You've got yourself made up.
