This town was built on miles of hope
And I dare you to give me one reason to stay
And I won't go away.

So far you've only dared me once
And I think we know that's not even close enough.
Not enough for me to stay.

It costs so much I know,
But I guess I need to know
What it would have felt like to be right.

But I'm getting tired all over again
So hurry up and get here
Because I'm still waiting,
Just like I've always been.

I'm getting tired of standing around,
Just sitting here and waiting to be found.
Same old shit just different day.

I'll wait around for one more day
But I know that's what I will always say
Will this ever be OK?

It costs so much I know
But I guess I need to know
What it would have felt like to be right

Well I'm getting tired all over again
So hurry up and get here
Because I'm still waiting
Just like I've always been

It costs so much I know
But I guess I need to know
What it would have felt like to be right

Well I'm getting tired all over again
So hurry up and get here
Because I'm still waiting
Just like I've always been

Hey now, we'll be around for one more day
Hey now, we'll be around for one more day

I will always worry about you
I will always stick up for you

I will always worry about you
I will always stick up for you

    General CommentThis isn't the best TITR song, but certainly one of their greatest. I love it how this song slams in all of sudden after Do You Know Who You Are? finishes.

    General CommentMaybe not the greatest song ever, but TITR was definitely one of the best bands to ever get signed to Revelation records, by far.

    General Comment"well this town was built on miles of hope and i dare you to give me a reason to stay, then I won't go away..." Is "back and to the left" a Kennedy reference?

    General Commenthow is it a kennedy reference? not to sound like i'm attacking you but the lyric it self can't explain how it is a reference to a president that was assasinated, just back up your point because i don't see it.
