When I was younger
I was certain
I would be fine without a queen
Just a king inside his castle
With an ocean in between

Now all I do is sit and
Count the miles from you to me
Oh, calamity

We get older by the hour
Watch the changes from afar
Keep forgetting to remember
Where we've been is who we are

Now all I do is wnoder
Why we ever set the scene
Oh, calamity

It's such a shame that we play strangers
No act to change what we've become
Damn it's such a shame that we built a wreck out of me
Oh, calamity
Oh, calamity

I'll remembernights alone
Waking up to dial tones
Always found my greatest moment
In the sound of your hello's

Now I struggle to recall
The reasons you would come to leave
Oh, calamity

It's such a shame that we play strangers
No act to change what we've become
Damn it's such a shame that we build a wreck out of me
Oh, calamity
Oh, calamity

If I catch you on the corner
WIll you even know it's me?
Will I look familiar to you?
Do you offer me a seat?
Can we find a new beginning?
Do you turn the other cheek?
Oh, calamity

It's such a shame that we play strangers
No act to change what we've become
Damn it's such a shame that we play strangers
No act to change what we've become
Damn it's such a shame that we built a wreck out of me
Oh, calamity
Oh, calamity
Oh, calamity

Come back to me
