BAD YEAR
It was a bad year for getting older
She had a hard time learning to be sober
While all the cool kids were shrugging shoulders
She kept a stiff lip, marching like a soldier

It was a bad year for being patient
She spent the long nights wondering where the days went
And when her foot touched upon the pavement
She was long gone

She comes
And she goes
Leaving us to love alone
She comes
And she goes
Burning every bridge she knows

It was a bad year for getting older
She had a sharp-tongued devil on her shoulder
They had a good run but now it's over
She had the most fun doing what he told her

It was a bad year for being jaded
She never got hers even though she waited
Being a good girl was overrated
Now she's long gone

She comes
And she goes
Leaving us to love alone
She comes
And she goes
Burning every bridge she knows

And she won't be found where her lover hides anymore
And she won't be bound by the things that tied her before
And she won't give up and she won't give in
But she does it all the time...

She comes
And she goes
Leaving us to love alone
She comes
And she goes
Burning every bridge she knows
Burning every bridge she knows

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

It was a bad year for getting older
She had a hard time learning to be sober
 

WRITING ON THE WALL

​Fall down, baby, if you want to fly
Rise up, baby, if you want to fall
Hold on, baby, if you want to die
Let go, baby, if you want it all

All I say
All I do
Is the writing on the wall
My picture of you

Picture of you...
 

​This old man gonna make you cry
This young man gonna make you talk
This old man gonna tell you why
This young man gonna let you walk
 

Walk on by
Walk on through
Every step that you deny
Steps closer to you

Closer to you...

WHEN YOU'RE GONE
When you're gone
Walls fall down
When you're gone
Worlds are found

But as long I've got you to hold my hand
I'm reminded of the places I won't stand

When you're gone
Faces change
When you're gone
Your love feels strange

But as long as I've got you to write my name
I'm reminded of the price I have to pay

Just like an animal, I'm out for number one
Safe as a criminal walking around with a loaded gun
I've spent the darkest nights burning in Babylon
And I keep on burning 'til the dawn
 

When you're gone

Walls fall down
When you're gone
Worlds are found



But as long as I've got you to write my name

I'm reminded of the price I have to pay

Just like an animal, I'm out for number one
Safe as a criminal walking around with a loaded gun
I've spent the darkest nights burning in Babylon
And I keep on burning 'til the dawn

When you're gone...

THE MOMENT BEFORE
There's a moment before you rise
As the morning enters your eyes
And it makes all the difference which way you turn
To the warmth of the east or to the west where you burn

And there's a moment before you leave
As you stand by the door and breathe
Holding the oxygen for so long
Now will you exhale and go or just keep holding on?



Well, you'll know tomorrow
How you ever ended up this way
And you'll know tomorrow
What went wrong today...

And there's a moment before you speak
With your tongue pressed against your cheek
When all the consequence of your doubt
Can be swallowed away or come tumbling out

And there's a moment before you now
As you rise up to take your bow
When every obstacle that you ever met
Will remind you of love or crush you with regret

And you'll know tomorrow
How you ever ended up this way
And you'll know tomorrow
What went wrong today...



Oh, the moment that you wanted back
Was lost along the way
