I've never seen the fire burning out on the motorway Or took a ride on a train that was going the other way I've only got myself, only got myself to blame We won't get to see the world come down By then all we'll be is a decaying sound The only thing you can call your own Is that sense of loss when you're all alone What we wanted, man, it won't come true There's nothing out there watching over me or you I've only got myself, only got myself to blame We won't get to see the world come down By then all we'll be is a decaying sound The only thing you can call your own Is that sense of loss when you're all alone

I used to believe in everything I'd see That I was right for you and you were right for me But you said things change in such a hurry That's how it goes, best not to worry Now I still lie awake in my bed Thinking some things are better left unsaid Time's been playing tricks on me It slowly takes away all the mystery And all the memories seem to slow me down Sometimes I just wanna say let's turn around And live life in reverse instead But some things are better left unsaid How long will it be 'til we fall apart How long will it be 'til you see what's in my heart I'm not what you want, no I'm just a ringer But you know the song, it out lives the singer It was just an idea, something in my head But some things are better left unsaid
3.
What the hell did you do? We're not welcome no more One hundred eyes follow you from pictures on the wall I think you've made it clear There's nothing left to say Got to get away from here Away from here Your mother was still a kid When rock 'n' roll was born But you can't learn to live From the old records no more I think you've made it clear There's nothing left to say Got to get away from here Away from here

Last few hours I've felt blue 'cause all the things we said we'd do I guess I'll have to leave them all to you The TV's glow won't keep me warm Can't help but think I've been here before It's here one minute but gone come dawn But the long night is over And now everything moves slower Everyone moves slower
5.
You've got nothing left to get off your chest So whatever you say now goes down as theft I don't have to believe in fate To know you'll get yours one of these days The more you've got, the more you've got to lose What happens next is something that you choose You never used to have to try so hard Now you only fear what doesn't leave you scarred I don't have to believe in fate To know you'll get yours one of these days The more you've got, the more you've got to lose What happens next is something that you choose

I must confess I don't care what you think If it wasn't you it'd be someone else driving me to drink And it's a crying shame How we always try to blame Someone else And it's not you and it's not me It's just the way it has to be At some point I'll take responsibility for my actions Rather than pretending like they never happened And I'll go down, down, down Wearing a crepe paper crown That doesn't fit It's not you and it's not me It's just the way it has to be It's not you and it's not me It's just the way it has to be

At the end of the day We'll go the same way And all end up At the bottom of the lake Earthling brains All mixed up on the bottom of the lake A new empire's installed Where the last one falls We kid ourselves It'll all be okay Earthling brains All mixed up onthe bottom of the lake All mixed up on the bottom of the lake All mixed up on the bottom of the lake All mixed up on the bottom of the lake

I've stepped aside And looked for a place to hide I've given up without a fight And faded into the night I know what I'm doing I know what I'm doing I've turned to the drink More times than I care to think I've waited for the fight to begin Then picked the side I thought would win I know what I'm doing I know what I'm doing But today I stuck to my guns I will live with what I've done Cause today I stuck to my guns At least that's one good thing that I've done But today I stuck to my guns I will live with what I've done Cause today I stuck to my guns At least that's one good thing that I've done But today I stuck to my guns I will live with what I've done Cause today I stuck to my guns At least that's one good thing that I've done

Your magazines lie on the floor Your dressing gown hangs from the door Last night's dishes, next to the sink I'd drink your tea but it's peppermint I'll leave a light on for you When you're out there on your own I'll leave a light on for you When the bastards have all gone home I don't know what to do Except leave a light on for you If you want a world to make your own You've got to start it when you're at home But when you get in you can't think straight You can't stay up 'cause it's already too late I'll leave a light on for you When you're out there on your own I'll leave a light on for you When the bastards have all gone home I don't know what to do Except leave a light on for you I don't know what to do Except leave a light on for you
