Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck
Some nights I call it a draw
Some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle
Some nights I wish they'd just fall off

But I still wake up,
I still see your ghost
Oh lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for
Oh woah, what do I stand for?
Oh woah, what do I stand for?

Most nights I don't know
Anymore,

Oh woah
Oh woah, oh oh
Oh woah, oh woah
Oh woah, oh oh

This is it boys, this is war!
What are we waiting for?
Why don't we break the rules already?

I was never one to believe the hype
Save that for the black and white
Try twice as hard and I'm half as liked
But here they come again to jack my style

That's alright, that's alright
I found a martyr in my bed tonight
Stops my bones from wondering
Just who I, who I, who I am
Oh who am I?
Who am I?
Who am I?
Who am I?

Well some nights I wish that this all would end
'Cause I could use some friends for a change
And some nights I'm scared you'll forget me again
Some nights I always win, I always win

But I still wake up,
I still see your ghost
Oh lord I'm still not sure what I stand for
Oh

What do I stand for? Oh woah
What do I stand for? Oh woah
Most nights, I don't know
Oh come on!

So this is it?
I sold my soul for this?
Washed my hands out for this? (Oh my my)
I missed my Mum and Dad for this? (Oh my)

Oh come on!
When I see stars,
When I see, when I see stars (Oh come on!)
That's all they are
When I hear songs, (Oh my my)
They sound like a swan (Oh my)

So come on!
Oh come on!
Come on!
Oh come on!

Well that is it, guys, that is all! (Oh! Oh woah)
Five minutes in and I'm bored again (Oh woah!)
Ten years of this, I'm not sure if anybody understands (Oh)

This one is not for the folks at home (Oh! Oh woah!)
Sorry to leave Mum, I had to go (Oh woah)
Who the heck wants to die alone, all dried up in the desert sun? (Oh!)

My heart is breaking for my sister
And the con that she called love
But when I look into my nephews eyes
Man, you wouldn't believe
The most amazing thing
That can come from...
Some terrible lies, yeah, ah woah!

Oh! (Ah yeah ah)
Oh woah!

Oh, oh woah
Oh woah, oh
Oh, oh woah,
Oh woah, oh

The other night you wouldn't believe (Oh! Oh woah)
The dream I just had about you and me (Oh woah!)
I called you up, but we'd both agree (Oh, Oh come on!)

It's for the best you didn't listen (Oh! Oh woah) (Yeah)
It's for the best we get our distance, oh! (Oh woah! Oh) (Oh come on!)
It's for the best you didn't listen (Oh! Oh woah) (Oh!)
It's for the best we get our distance, oh! (Oh woah! Oh) (Come on!)

Oh,
Oh woah
Oh woah
Oh!
