i spend my nights on a
systematic plan to end my life
i see no other way to make it one more night
but i'm getting
bye bye designs
we were getting close but left some friends behind
and the spark we had may just be in my mind
but it's still alive

days go by
we could have had a lifetime at this point
she walks by
and while they're turning in
i wondered

(chorus)
how did i let so many years go by without having you
how did i let you be my last great hope, the best i could do
to go on
to be strong
just learned i won't be anyone
how did i let so many years go by without you


my friends and i we
made it to the end but stopped just shy
and while we saved the world the public screams and cries
yeah tell us why
we stayed behind in the
time when nothing's resolved nothing's right
the odds are stacked but we're together one last time
and we're set to die

days rolled by
between the drink and talk we thought we'd fly
while they'd fight
i couldn't help but watch
and wonder

(chorus)

(bridge)
i was heading west to cali
out of sight and out of tune
never crossed my mind to think
that i was moving back to you

and i don't want to be their backgrounds
i want to buy what i've been sold
but i found i lost their numbers
so i sat there growing old
and wondered

(chorus)
how did i let so many years go by without having you
how did i let you be my last great hope, the best i could do
to go on
to be strong
i bet it all on desperate songs
how did i let so many years go by without you
