Are you all alone tonight Watching your life on TV? Are you sweating through your sheets Thinking of ways to leave me? I won't let you go It's like I told you so I won't let you go So keep on dreaming now Are you reaching your wit's end With the way you soldier on? Are dreaming of that day when I'll wake up and you'll be gone Oh no, It's like they told you so I won't let you go So keep on dreaming now White horses in the night Things that help you feel alive Race away, forget the fight Terrified to shut the light, so Keep on dreaming now I won't let you go It's like I told you so I won't let you go So keep on dreaming now

He's got a way with words you just don't hear anymore Droppin' lines so hot, he's gonna melt 'em before They get a second to ask Who brought this guy 'round here? When the music is bad, and the people don't know The nucleus of the floor, the one who's dancing the snow Shoe moonwalk with class Even haters turn their heads as they pass on by You should feel lucky to know You're with the man of the hour Fighting out in the street, he's taking two at a time Blood spilling on his new shirt, you can be sure he don't mind Smokin' in the alleyway, just the same as yesterday You should feel lucky to know You're with the man of the hour Fighting out in the street, he's taking two at a time You know you are what you lack, so leave your doubts all behind Smokin' in the alleyway, just the same as yesterday You should feel lucky to know You're with the man of the hour

I can tell by the way you're standing alone Nobody's gonna break to make you feel at home Spent your last quarter in the nuts machine Bleeding from the nose, baby that's the scene Oooh, you'll be the death of me Oooh, you'll be the death of me Tryin' to find the time on these glowing walls Feeling like a kid in your high school halls You see the same faces, they're tired and mean Failing like the lights on the Keno screen Oooh, you'll be the death of me Oooh, you'll be the death of me I've never seen the exit light so clear I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear I can't stand another wasted year I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear When the smoke gets stale and the night is done They're the one's who're gonna say that you're the lonely one But it's too dark now, and you can't go back Stealing away and never paying it back Oooh, you'll be the death of me Oooh, you'll be the death of me I've never seen the exit light so clear I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear I can't stand another wasted year I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear

Where you runnin' Where you runnin' Where you runnin' now? Where you runnin' Where you runnin' Where you runnin' now? Take your time, til your time is gone, It's me, I'm on your lawn and your lights are on So hey, lock the door there's a bad man comin' Pushin' up daisies til you dig me out, honey come on Alright Are you comin' out tonght? Where you runnin' Where you runnin' Where you runnin' now? Where you runnin' Where you runnin' Where you runnin' now? Hold the phone cause your landlord's on the line She said she's not gonna call ahead next time So hey, lock the door there's a bad man comin' Pushin' up daisies til you dig me out, honey Alright Are you comin' out tonight?

Pushing rocks uphill for eternity Just to watch them roll back into the sea Feeling the weight of it all Feeling the weight of it all Bailing fast but you know the hole is growing bigger We'll find your body soon at the bottom the river Feeling the weight of it all Feeling the weight of it all The feel of your mind in dissolve Feeling the weight of it all Infinitely billowing black sail bloom In filling your lungs it's tearing through Turn and face into the wind Push it off the cliff and keep walking on (Do you feel better now?) Break on through the night to another dawn (Do you feel better now?) Pushing rocks for eternity it seems (Do you feel better now?)

Turn back the clock I'd like to write that page again And I'll make a fool of myself Many times again Turn back into The friend that I once knew before Cause if you really knew You wouldn't love me anyway Don't leave me now Cause this doesn't feel like the end Don't leave me now I don't know how I'll find you again Feeling our way blind through the dark Out in the open on this moonless night Why are you walking fast ahead? Forget what I said, you're only dreaming Don't leave me now Cause this doesn't feel like the end Don't leave me now I don't know how I'll find you again
