I know what it would be like if you stayed out of my life Another year and month tomorrow asking why What would it be like if you took the final step and tried To find out how we fit in each other's lives Always two ships in the night that could never reach but saw each other's lights And the walls put up between us not our own design Ain't you filled up with hearsay and rumor Don't your heart burn with the way another turns the phrase Aren't you curious what we can't leave this behind us What can be between us ain't it time to say I know what it would be like if you stayed out of my life Another year and month tomorrow asking why What would it be like if you took the final step and tried To find out how we fit in each other's lives And this ain't healed with time Won't ask you to pretend I can not deny The harm and hurt used to inspire Maybe we both don't understand the moves each other needs to play out our hands And found refuge in the distance I know what it would be like if you stayed out of my life Another year and month tomorrow asking why What would it be like if you took the final step and tried To find out how we fit in each other's lives

Just a Game 04:20
Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game I can be starving without a home You still keep your love way from my door On the verge of extinction And I can pour out my heart but you still can't tell it apart from your ego Where the hell was I supposed to go Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game No time for thoughts of what might've been I'm out here Grasping for oxygen While your table more than full You run your hypothetical trials What will never come leaves you paralyzed While I'm out here searching for shelter alone on the road Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game I spose the greatest tragedy is you ain't got the space to see Your heart ain't got a home You can turn your head so many times But sooner or later you realize You broke off a piece each time you turned it to stone And I would rather be poor than so far removed Rather lost then making myself choose to do this I would never do the same to you Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game to you Just a game

Thanks for waiting Don't know when I'll be coming back Thanks for watching the train leave the station Without throwing yourself on the track Thanks for waiting Sometimes it's what you do not do Got to find the life i want to live So I can bring it back home to you Ain't no guarantees And I might not find the things I need But I love you too much to let us use each other Till our hearts are bitter and gone Not cause I'm trying to be strong But cause I know my weakness and I've heard this song Know the dark that I can be and how I'm fraid to be alone Thanks for waiting Don't know when I'll be coming back Thanks for watching the train leave the station Without throwing yourself on the track Thanks for waiting Sometimes it's what you do not do Got to find the life i want to live So I can bring it back home to you Ain't about fidelity The will to live for most seems to come so easy Not running from my problems they always seem to jump the line We both know the better part of me was stole Got to find them or give them a place to grow Or I'll start stealing other pieces Doing as I was told Thanks for waiting Don't know when I'll be coming back Thanks for watching the train leave the station Without throwing yourself on the track Thanks for waiting Sometimes it's what you do not do Got to find the life i want to live So I can bring it back home to you

It is what it was Beautiful and lucky It is what it was Inevitable like a tragedy It was what it is Sad and lucky It was what it is Beautiful tragedy Just becuase the petals fall Don't mean the colors never grew There is no distance between you and me No time to keep on moving through we've chrystallized the light but it can still warm us in memory No drop in sight No cause to claim Had to leave so together we could remain It is what it was Beautiful and lucky It is what it was Inevitable like a tragedy It was what it is Sad and lucky It was what it is Beautiful tragedy Creation has it's own life if you'll let it Maybe it's time to burn your chest with the ashes So rode and restless That you find yourself claiming what is yours to be Something I could never have if it wasn't taken away from me It is what it was Beautiful and lucky It is what it was Inevitable like a tragedy It was what it is Sad and lucky It was what it is Beautiful tragedy Keep in mind the road you walk ain't for you to walk alone There are centuries of souls with your experience as their own We're here to touch thelives of those still fighting in the fray Even with your flaws you show them all Life starts new every day It is what it was Beautiful and lucky It is what it was Inevitable like a tragedy It was what it is Sad and lucky It was what it is Beautiful tragedy It is what it is Beautiful tragedy
