I’m back here again
Stuck with this heart
That never quite mends
But maybe that’s all that I need in the end

People will come and they’ll go
And you can’t even guess at their pain and their hopes
Oh everything’s broke and we don’t even know

Why do we want what we want?
Does anyone know how to turn this thing off?
Its busted pipes rattling like bones all night long

Why don’t the gone stay gone?
Why do these ghosts keep singing me songs?
If nothing lasts why won’t they let me move on?

All that you vowed
All that you swore
All that you promised
Ain’t promised no more
