lyrics

All that I know
Is wasted time
Hours lost forever in the blink
Of someone else’s eye

Walk the town, talk around
The stories look the same
Coffee and cigarettes – and all your left with
Is someone else’s pain

You can say that it’s alright
Or you could take your own advice

Feeling all alone
In the warmth of a happy home
You could leave on your own
Treading water or a sinking stone

You can say that it’s alright
Or you can take your own advice

Tell me what I want to hear
‘Cause I can’t tell myself another lie
Been saving up for all these years
For the big goodbye
But it’s not aloud
It’s not spoken at all
It’s never given away
And never lost

You’ve given up
On all your plans
‘Cause a quitter never wins
And a winner never understands

You can say that it’s alright
Or you can take your own advice

Tell me what I want to hear
‘Cause I can’t tell myself another lie
Been saving up for all these years
For the big goodbye
But it’s not aloud
It’s not spoken at all
It’s never given away –
Not allowed
And you could take it all away
But it comes right back
The next day

Leave on your own
Treading water or a sinking stone
