I live the life of a drifter I never let anyone get close Passing through town to town Throwing my heart around Scared of the world I used to know I’m good at faking happiness You’d never know my fear by my smile Laughing with the crowd again Speaking of my dearest friends I really haven’t seen in a while I am hunted by ghosts They follow wherever I go I try to run as fast as I can They always seem to find me They always know where I am My world is built on betrayal My lies have become my best friends Think you adore me Think that you know me But I’ll only disappoint you in the end I am hunted by ghosts They follow wherever I go I try to run as fast as I can They always seem to find me They always seem to find me Yes, I am hunted by ghosts Their presence is all that I know I try to run as fast as I can They always seem to hurt me They always find me in the end

Everything I’ve ever done for you is lost and gone and it won’t come back It won’t come back Affections come and roll right off your shoulders turn away it’s like you’re sleeping But you’re not sleeping So I cling onto this tightness in my gut And I find it strangely saccharine Like tasting just a little bit of blood Why so sweet to play the victim in this crooked mind Distracted by another kind of villain So take it back, just take it back now Let’s take it back to where we both belong Cuz we can’t win, no we can’t win, no We can’t win for fear of losing So take it back, just take it back now Now, now, now, now Words we always echoed from our mouths and from our hearts have been revolting revolting They hang up in the sticky air between us, ostentatious in their meaning and demeaning This battle may have only just begun So is this all that I can muster? But staring with you straight into the sun All this time has made me weary of another one Praying I won’t soon become your villain Remember what you know Remember all the happy homes we built Remember why we’re here It’s nothing like a rolling stone gone still And maybe you’re right Maybe there aint nothin’ that happens for a reason A reason But I got plenty right here We both got plenty right here So take it back, just take it back now Please, take it back to where we both belong Take it back, just take it back now Take it back to where we both belong Cuz we can’t win, no we can’t win, no We can’t win for fear of losing

All Along 03:19
There’s nothing left to leave here but you so I’ll take the scent of your shampoo the way that nostalgic people do There’s nothing that’s left here but me in the paint on the walls and the debris I’m faded beyond what you can see So where do we go from here? Tomorrow is a terrible frontier where do we go from here? Will your name linger on my lips like a song? cuz I’ve known you all along There’s nothing left to heal but the scars so I can just add you to my repertoire cuz I’ve got the pen and the guitar There’s nothing left to say but goodbye Appreciate the days and nights that we tried And decorate the hope with some lies So where do we go from here? Tomorrow is a terrible frontier where do we go from here? Will your name linger on my lips like a song? cuz I’ve known you all along

Tell me all the bars you’ve closed down And all the stunts you’ve pulled now All of what you’ve been through And all the things you came to find In your mind In your mind Tell me All the things you can’t do And all the times you had to All the love you can’t see And all the mess you left behind In your mind In your mind Cuz if I can find a partner in crime Then I won’t have to sleepwalk through this town anymore Anymore Tell me All the rules you live by and all the things you won’t try All the lives you set free From prisons of your own design In your mind In your mind Tell me All the hopes you’ll hold back Or keep up in the abstract The trouble we’ll get into And all the things we’ve left to do Don’t you want to? Cuz if I can find a partner in crime Then I won’t have to peacock through this town anymore Anymore Cuz if I can find a partner in crime Then I won’t have to sleepwalk through this town anymore And if I can find my partner in crime Then I won’t have to do this all alone And wouldn’t that be fine?
