Verse 1

She didn't mean to

deceive you believe me

But sometimes the

hardest part is conceiving

Refrain 1

The good intentions

that you had

Now only came to

this And although

she saw the mark

The arrow missed

Verse 2

It isn't exciting

reciting the stories

Of kind words turned hurting

when routine gets boring

Refrain 2

Both getting tired

of punk rock clubs

And both playing

in punk rock bands

The start was

something good

But some good

things must end


---- x2

Verse 3

And she said "It

could never survive

With such differing

lives One home one

out on tour again

We may never come

back The strike of

a match The candle's

buring at both ends"


---- x2

Verse 4

And now she knows too much

And I'm too fucked up

It's awkward trying

to make my move

I'll pretend that I'm

fine Show up right on

time But I know I'll

never be that cool

Refrain 3

I never wanted to hold you

back I'm just trying to hold

on But my chance is gone


I know just where I stand a boy

Trapped in the body of a man and

I'll take what you're willing to

give And I'll teach myself to

live With a walk-on part

of a background shot

From a movie I'm not in


---- x2


She's so important

And I'm so retarded

Refrain 4

And now I realize

I should have kissed you in L.A.

But I drove home all alone

As if I had a choice anyway

Where are you coming from?

What are you running from?

Is it so hard to see?

And if you're feeling scared

Remember the time we shared

You know it meant

everything (everything)

You know that it meant

everything to me

You know that it meant

everything to me


---- x2 (hold)
