lyrics

Well come on take a gamble
Living forever is over rated I know
Fear of failure well it never
Helped anybody ever find their way back home
Well I know

Stability that we need doesn’t exist in this world of change
Even if the man that you love is trying his best to be strong
And everything you want
He just wants to belong
At least throw him a bone.

You drank up all the water
And when the well went dry
You wanted an answer
I thought that you were sleeping
And didn’t realize you had been drinking
I fooled myself for so long
I didn’t realize that you and me’d
Gone wrong we just held on
Until the bough broke

I lost you so long ago
That I don’t even know if you ever saw me in the first place
I was too scared to let go
made a promise to you I would be there always
I’d been screwed so many times
so I guess it didn’t really hurt when you nailed me
I forgot what it was like to grow

Put me into the cardboard
Pack me in with the Styrofoam
Seal me into the plastic wrap
You can not save someone who won’t change

Well come on take a gamble
Living forever
Is over rated I know
