Everyone here was just passing through
Now no one's leavin', no one's leavin'
This old place is just one big cliché.
And we are just the same, we are just the same

Please say I am worth it
Please say that you'll try
Please say you are letting go
I am barely holdin' on

It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it
It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it
It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it (It's too bad it's so good, it's so bad it's so you)
It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it (It's too bad it's so good, it's so bad it's so you)

I am nothing short of everything
I've been exhausted, like these fields of coal
If you insist on dying slowly
All I leave in prose is useless
If you insist on being strong enough

Please say I am worth it
Please say that you'll try
Please say you are letting go
I am barely holdin' on

It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it
It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it
It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it (It's too bad it's so good, it's so bad it's so you)
It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it (It's too bad it's so good, it's so bad it's so you)
It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it (It's too bad it's so good, it's so bad it's so you)
It's not anymore (It's too bad it's so good, it's so bad it's so you)

And won't you bury me
Beneath the smallest tree
And post a sign that said he tried
'Cause I can't stand your mouth
Or any but what about
And this is not what we once tried

And won't you bury me
Beneath the smallest tree
And post a sign that said he tried
'Cause I can't stand your mouth
Or any other ton about
And this is not what we once tried

It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it
It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it
It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it (It's too bad it's so good, it's so bad it's so you)
It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it (It's too bad it's so good, it's so bad it's so you)
It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it (It's too bad it's so good, it's so bad it's so you)
It's not anymore, it's not anymore than what we make it (It's too bad it's so good, it's so bad it's so you)
It's too bad it's so good, it's so bad it's so you
It's too bad it's so good, so bad it's so you

    General Commenti think this song is about giving up on something that you've tried to get for such a long time..something that would complete your life, but it's just out of your reach and finally you just give up because it's exhausted you and you can't go on for any longer.

    General CommentIts about a dead-end town who no-one ever seems to leave... and about the girl who left and didn't take him with her...

    or so I read ;)

    to me it means someone who can't hold on anylonger and wait for things to get better....
