All Time Low – Poison lyrics

I've got a house in the back of my head
But I can't find a permanent resident
Cause the markets down and
The area's not so good these days
I've got a watch but I don't have time
I got a road and it leads to decadence
But a dead end sign waits down the line
I leave my footprints for the evidence

So take my life
I'll hand it to you
And you can try on my clothes
But you can't fill these shoes
On a silver platter
Your wish came true
So your heart of gold turned platinum
You can take my life
But you can't take it with you

More long days and fleeting nights
So tell them, wake me under flashing lights
Cause I'm a brand name bought and sold

They say a face for fame is a crying shame
Because to face the crowd is to play their game
And I can play a little too rough now and again

You drank the poison and I let you in

So take my life
I'll hand it to you
And you can try on my clothes
But you can't fill these shoes
On a silver platter
Your wish came true
So your heart of gold turned platinum
You can take my life but you can't take it with you

You drank the poison and I, I let you in
Would you trade that heart of gold for a minute in my skin
You drank the poison and I, I let you in
Would you trade that heart of gold for a minute in my skin

So take my life
I'll hand it to you
And you can try on my clothes
But you can't fill these shoes
On a silver platter
Your wish came true
So your heart of gold turned platinum
You can take my life but you can't take it with you.
