lyrics

Sometimes when I'm sitting on my own
I think about the future and being all alone
Twilight and the night is settling in
I think of all my personal thoughts.
Ones I can't tell my friends

I go out on the balcony above the city buildings
And wonder why the memories always seems so gilded with gold
Don't it feel peculiar just living without letting go?
It's so odd that I'd wonder what's to stop me from getting old?

Take this life
If the measure of a man is not what he does
But how he FEELS about what he does
Then take this life
'Cuz the things and people that I want,
I never get
Or else I just don't get enough....

Nothing can change the things I say
And no one understands just how to fade the pain away
I live with anger every day
You want to come with me?
You better learn to hate....

I go out on the balcony above the city buildings
And wonder why the memories always seem to catch me off guard
And don't it feel peculiar just living without letting go
It's so odd that I'd wonder what's to stop me from jumping off...

Take this life....
