Lyrics

ive out your life
It’s the only one you know
the only one you know
the only one you know
that you’ve been given here so far.

And listen to father
your mamma told you so
mamma told you so
mamma told you so
and you don’t want to lose her love.

All that you ever did
was speak your mind.
And all you ever wanted
was to sneak into your life
sneak into your life and wander out.

Ooh, it’s always the ones we love that hurt us
We’re cracked beneath the surface
no matter what we do.

As for me, I’m going to find someone to love me
the way I should have loved you
the way I should have loved you.

The cruelty of youth
is that it’s wasted on the young
wasted on the young
wasted on the young
before we know what we become.

And looking back now is like
your dirty ragged dream
dirty ragged dream
your dirty ragged dream
of what you were and wished you’d been.

And all you ever did was try too hard
and all you ever learned
was to love her from afar,
love her from afar with all your heart.

Ooh, just light a candle in the window
the disappearing widow,
no one’s prodigy.

As for me, I’m going to find someone to love me
the way you should have loved me
the way you should have loved me.

Water wishes, brittle bones,
stolen streets of sorrow
should have loved you
should have loved you.

Meet me in your memory there
make believe you mean it
should have loved you
should have loved you
should have loved me.
