“Tear It Down Again”

Lost somewhere in love and hate
My right on time’s ten minutes late
I’m giving up I’m turning in
Forgotten what it means to win

I cloud my skies with raining eyes
Confused at where I’ve been
And even if you fixed my soul
I’d tear it down again
And you can think it’s crazy But
I know exactly where I stand
Cause I’ve been lost
Round’ here before
Trying to find out who I am

And baby that’s what happens
When your lost In love and hate
And when the whole worlds
Right on time
Somehow I’m always late
What happened to the future
What words will I forget
Why do I just sit by
and let my life fill with regret

It’s a rummage sale inside this heart
You bid on love but can’t buy my heart
You can love me, hate me,
Cast me aside,
Steal my spotlight
Scar my pride
Cause sometimes
That’s what lovers do
So passionate
When we sing the blues
But if you can’t handle hanging on
Then break my heart
But don’t lead me on

But still I
Cloud my skies with raining eyes
Confused at where I’ve been
And even if you fixed my soul
I’d tear it down again
And you can think it’s crazy But
I know exactly where I stand
Cause I’ve been lost
Round’ here before
Trying to find out who I am

And baby that’s what happens
When your lost In love and hate
And when the whole worlds
right on time
somehow I’m always late
What happened to the future
What words will I forget
Why do I just sit by
and let my life fill with regret

What happened to the future
What words will I forget
Why do I just sit by
and let my life fill with regret.
