If they really hate me, They can go to hell & don’t believe their rumors, ‘Cause they’re just rumors, Like that one they tell about you I don’t know, why the stars melt around us, & I don’t know, how to say those things I mean I don’t know, why the world spins around, around, around, But all I know, is I’m glad you’re spinning on it with me Yeah, you’re spinning on it with me Does the future grip you tightly, Like it grips me tightly, with the fear of what it holds? All of this reminds me, Does it remind you, that we’re not supposed to know? I know you think I’m crazy, I’m not all that crazy, Well, not anymore I don’t know, why the stars melt around us, & I don’t know, how to say those things I mean I don’t know, why the world spins around, around, around, But all I know, is I’m glad you’re spinning on it with me Yeah, spinning on it with me

All the years you tried to make it right, there was nothing really wrong All the time you spent inside yourself, you didn’t have to be alone All the places you think you want to see, you know I’ll take you anywhere &, all the places you say you’d rather be, well I hope you’ll stay right here You save me, You save me, all the time You’re so caught up in what you think you want, you can’t notice what you’ve got &, when you talk about all you might have lost, you don’t know you’re better off I only hope one day you’ll finally see, how much good you’ve done for me Sometimes I find it hard to believe, you could be so blind to everything You save me, You save me, all the time

Take your chances, boy ‘Cause they may never come again Don’t you live your life, With regret for what you with you did And get your punches in, But don’t ever run from consequence On your own two feet you’ll face, Whatever finds you, in the end Just try to do right by everyone, And always protect the ones you love, And you’ll find you’ll get back, Every bit of good that you put in You’ll have to earn your keep, Don’t think you’re entitled to anything, But I hope you learn the gratitude, To always help those who have less than you And don’t be afraid of change, Never be afraid to make mistakes, I hope these words help you find your place But whatever you do, I’ll be proud of you Just try to do right by everyone, And always protect the ones you love, And you’ll find you’ll get back, Every bit of good that you put in Never give up on what you want, Learn to hold on when it gets tough, And you’ll find you’ll get back, Every bit of good that you put in Only compromise, if it feels right Don’t stand your ground, when you’re wrong I wrote these words for you Take these with you Just try to do right by everyone, And always protect the ones you love, And you’ll find you’ll get back, Every bit of good that you put in Never give up on what you want, Learn to hold on when it gets tough, And you’ll find you’ll get back, Every bit of good that you put in

Before we even left, on our road trip, You said let’s stop for gas, I need cigarettes, I thought, I hate the smell when you smoke like that, But it’s sentimental Somehow, I got lost the way out of town, It was sleeting down, it was a white out, You had your window cracked to let the smoke out, I said it’s cold, you said let’s turn back, I said no, Let’s drive around & find something to do, before we leave this town, Let’s make a memory, something to remember me, When I’m gone, I’ll reach out, I’ll drop a line, I’ll try & try, to let you know I’m fine, Please respond to me, I get so lonely I know I said it, but I didn’t mean it, no I didn’t mean it at all, Not at all, no I know I said it, but I didn’t mean it, no I didn’t mean it at all, At all & so we slid around, for like an hour after that, Lost, confused about where we were at, You kept laughing at me, there’s your memory As for me & you, I could never tell, We ended up in that hotel with the dingy smell, I’m so sorry, I get so lonely Well, I know I said it, but I didn’t mean it, no I didn’t mean it at all, Not at all, no I know I said it, but I didn’t mean it, no I didn’t mean it at all, At all

Get in line, wait your turn, Let it all just pass you by So it goes, or so they say, But what do they know anyway? You use to say my name this way that would echo through my head, But it seems like so fucking long ago, that I barely remember it But you did, & you do Get a job, to pay your bills, Until there’s nothing left of the thrill & so it goes, or so they say, yeah so they say, But what do they know anyway? You use to say my name this way that would echo through my head, But it seems like so fucking long ago, that I barely remember it But you did, & you do, You always will. You use to say my name this way that would echo through my head, It seems like so fucking long ago, that I barely remember it But you did, & you do, yeah you did, You always will.

Stevie doesn’t know me, the way that she thinks she does, I don’t deserve this, & neither does she I’m hanging around, but she wants me to leave, She wants me to leave, she wants me to leave I need the answers, but I don’t know the questions Where do I hide, if I want to be found? Tell me the secret, give me the secret, Tell me your secret Well, don’t drown in that sea of deceit, & don’t eat from the forbidden tree, & don’t breathe the breath of a lie, a lie Well, all that I needed, was someone to talk to, All that she wanted, was someone to fuck Well, I got what I needed, but she got what she wanted, She got what she wanted, yeah There are so many questions, & so many faces, & so many places, I’ll never know, I need more time, I need more time, I’m out of time Well, don’t drown in that sea of deceit, & don’t eat from the forbidden tree, & don’t breathe the breath of a lie, a lie & don’t hide if you want to be found, & speak up if you want to be loud, But don’t breathe the breath of a lie, a lie Wait up, wait up for me, I’ve fallen way to far behind Speak up, speak up, I need to hear it, Every single time Wait up, wait up for me, I’ve fallen way to far behind Speak up, speak up, I need to hear it, Every single time

As time goes by, the leaves will fall & grow back again, We’ll all be doing what we do These intervals get shorter as you’re growing up, Happens to the best of us, but I’ll guide you through ‘Cause you’ll get lost, before you’re found & looking back will only slow you down, But don’t be afraid to call for help, ‘Cause I will run to you, I will run to you When the stars are bright, they’ll guide you through the night, You’ll soon be learning what they are I’ll protect you, I’ll help you, I’ll teach you the best I can, But slowly letting go will be the hardest part You’ll get lost, before you’re found & looking back will only slow you down, But don’t be afraid to call for help, ‘Cause I will run to you, I will run to you
