I had a plan, you'd had enough of working late
So I took my mothers car and the last money I saved.
Blind to our tactless egos, the world was ours to take
We had it figured out, yeah we had it figured out.
We were saved

You came from a good home,
And a family that helped you through.
Forever in the shadow of a brother you felt you could never live up to.
And I watched you tailor yourself to satisfy the mood,
I had you figured out, I had you figured out.

Now you lie awake,
And you curse the world for all of your mistakes
And you should have known that you would fuck it up some day
And you try to wish your careless heart away
It's not enough, not enough
You won't be saved

We grew apart and I had to leave for foreign shores
It seems that the plan I had worked out better than I thought
I swear you resented all the opportunities I had
So you filled that hole with women and alcohol

But now you lie awake
And you curse the world for all of your mistakes
And you should of known that you would fuck it up some day
You try to wish your careless heart away
It's not enough, it's not enough
You won't be saved

You are just a child in your father's eyes
Now you've a child of your own
Oh how you've grown

Now you lie awake
And you curse the world for all of your mistakes
And you should of known that you would fuck it up some day
And you try to wish your careless heart away
It's not enough
You won't be saved
