Woah, where does the time go?

LET’S NOT GET CAUGHT UP IN SEMANTICS I NEVER NEEDED ANYTHING AS BAD AS I NEED YOU WHEN YOU TURNED YOUR BACK ON ME THERE’S NOT ANYTHING THAT I WOULDN’T DO AND I KNOW SOMETIMES I SEEM SO DRAMATIC BUT THE DARKEST SHADOW OF THE CITY STREETS HAVE STAINED MY SOUL AND WHEN I LOOK AT MYSELF IN THE MIRROR WHAT IS IT I SEE? BECAUSE IT ISN’T ME OH NO, I DON’T RECOGNIZE MYSELF ANYMORE
3.
I GOT A LITTLE MONEY, WHO CARES I GOT SOME FRIENDS, BUT WHEN I REALLY NEED EM’ THEY ARE NEVER THERE I GOT A LITTLE TIME, WHO DON’T I GOT SOME STUFF THAT I KNOW I SHOULD DO BUT I JUST PROBABLY WON’T YOU CAN GO AND CALL ME NEGATIVE BECAUSE, IT’S TRUE YOU CAN SAY I PISS ON EVERYTHING BECAUSE, I DO BUT SOMETHING THAT I’VE LEARNED FROM BRIDGES THAT I’VE BURNED IT’S SELFLESS TO BE SELFISH SO DON’T EVER WAIT YOUR TURN DID YOU KNOW HOW WONDERFUL THIS LIFE CAN BE? WHEN YOU DON’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT EVERYTHING AND YOU DON’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT ANYTHING OR ANYONE LIKE ME. I’M JUST SAYING, NOTHING’S MORE IMPORTANT, THAN YOUR HEALTH BUT IF YOU CAN, ALWAYS DO SOMETHING KIND FOR SOMEONE ELSE DON’T FOCUS ON DOUBT, OR WHAT YOU ARE WITHOUT AND REMEMBER NOT TO FORGET TO BE KIND TO YOURSELF IT MAY BE HARDER THAN YOU THINK IT IS DON’T BE ASPERSE. I KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING IT MAY COME OUT AS ADVERSE SOME SAY IT’S A BLESSING, SOME SAY IT’S A CURSE THE ONLY WAY TO FEEL BETTER IS TO GO OUT AND FEEL WORSE

Love A Liar 02:30
I’LL NEVER KNOW JUST WHAT YOU SEE IN ME DON’T YOU KNOW YOU SHOULDN’T LOVE A LIAR BUT IF YOU WANT TO TAKE A CHANCE ON ME I CAN SHOW YOU THAT MY HEART’S ON FIRE FOR YOU, MY BABY, MY LADY, MY QUEEN GIVE ME JUST A LITTLE TIME I’LL SHOW YOU WHAT I MEAN WHEN I TELL YOU THAT I LOVE YOU AND I DON’T WANT YOU TO LEAVE BUT THIS ENERGY IS KILLING ME I’LL TELL YOU WHAT WE NEED RIGHT NOW I THINK WE JUST NEED EACH OTHER WE NEED EACH OTHER RIGHT NOW IF ONLY WE COULD GET TOGETHER MAYBE WE COULD GET IT FIGURED OUT

BEFORE YOU TURN THE ENGINE ON I NOTICED THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG WITH BOTH YOUR EYES, I GET IT ANYWAY NO WAY IN HELL I’D LET YOU DRIVE I TOLD YOU WE SHOULD STAY ALIVE YOU SIT AND SMILED: “I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU SAY” BEFORE I GET TOO OLD I WANT TO DIE YOUNG, BEAUTIFUL & BROKE YOU FALL ASLEEP BEHIND THE WHEEL LIKE IT AIN’T EVEN NO BIG DEAL, YOU KILL ME BABE ONE DAY YOU’LL KILL US BOTH THE WILD SIDE NOBODY SEES THE DEVIL INSIDE OF YOU AND ME IF WE LET IT OUT, IT’LL BE ALL SHE WROTE BECAUSE THE PEOPLE IN THIS TOWN WON’T THINK THAT BURNING IT DOWN IS A JOKE BEFORE WE GET TOO OLD I WANNA DIE YOUNG, BEAUTIFUL & BROKE OH AN OLD ROUTINE, THIS KAMIKAZE DREAM IS MORE FUN THAN IT SEEMS, THE PEOPLE IN THIS TOWN WON’T THINK THAT BURNING IT DOWN IS A JOKE BUT THEY WON’T SEE US LAUGHING AS WE DRIVE DIRECTLY STRAIGHT INTO THE SMOKE BEFORE WE GET TOO OLD I WANNA DIE YOUNG, BEAUTIFUL & BROKE

I NEVER NEEDED A LOVER I NEVER NEEDED A FRIEND AND WHEN I PUT MYSELF OUT THERE IT SEEMS THAT I ALWAYS GET FUCKED IN THE END AND ON THE WAY HOME WHERE I NEVER FEEL SO ALONE I NEVER SAW A REASON WHY ANYONE WOULD CRY WHILE WAVING TO THIS WORLD GOODBYE WHY IS THE WORLD ON FIRE I DON’T THINK THE WORLD IS ENDING BUT THERE WILL BE AN END AND I GOTTA BE HONEST I FANTASIZE ABOUT IT NOW AND AGAIN AND ONLY FOR A MOMENT I CAN FINALLY SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREE AND HOW THEY DANCE FOR ME LIKE THOUSANDS OF CANDLES SWAYING IN THE SUMMER BREEZE AND IT SEEMS MY ANXIETY HAS FINALLY GOTTEN THE BEST OF ME WHY IS THE WORLD ON FIRE MY ANXIETY HAS FINALLY GOTTEN THE BEST OF ME
