Cheated and lied, broken so bad
You made a vow, never get mad
You'll play the game, though it's unfair
They're all the same, who can compare
First you lose trust, then you get worried

Night after night, bar after club
Dropping like flies, who woke you up?
On the front lawn, sprinklers turn on
It's not your house, where'd you go wrong?
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather, when you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one? I do not deserve
To wait around forever when you were there first
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

There comes a time in a short life
Turn it around, get a re-write
Call it a dark night of the soul
Ticking of clocks, gravity's pull
First you get close, then you get worried

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather, when you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one? I do not deserve
To wait around forever when you were there first
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

It's going silent, the silent treatment,
It's not inviting you now
Don't deny what you meant
You get excited, you get excited,
You got a feeling or at least you can pretend
You wanna light it, you wanna light it,
You wanna light it, now the candle from both ends
You get excited, you get excited

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather, when you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one? I do not deserve
To wait around forever when you were there first

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather, when you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one? I do not deserve
To wait around forever when you were there first
First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried

You wanna light it, you wanna light it,
You wanna light it, now the candle from both ends
You wanna light it, you wanna light it,
You wanna light it, now the candle from both ends
