One last glance from a taxi cab
Images scar my mind
Four weeks felt like years
Since your full attention was all mine
The night was young and so were we
Talked about life, God, death, and your family
Didn't want any promises
Just my undivided honesty

And you said,
Oh, things are gonna change now for the better
Oh, things are gonna change oh they're gonna change

I am the patron saint of lost causes
My fraction of who I once believed (change)
Only a matter of time
Opinions I will try and rewrite
In my pen, background music,
Playing your song,
I've got to be honest, I tried to escape you
But the orchestra plays on,

And they said,
Oh, oh, things are gonna change now for the better
Oh, oh, things are gonna change

Hands like secrets are the hardest things to keep from you
Lines and phrases like knives your words can cut me through
Dismantle me down, (repair) you dismantle me, you dismantle me.

Hands like secrets are the hardest things to keep from you
Lines and phrases like knives your words can cut me through
Dismantle me down, (repair) you dismantle me, you dismantle me.

Give me time to prove
To prove I want the rest of yours (prelude)
Call this a prelude to a lifetime of you,
It's not that I hang on every word,
I hang myself on what you mean,
Its not that I keep hanging on,
I'm never letting go,

Hands like secrets are the hardest things to keep from you
Lines and phrases like knives your words can cut me through
Dismantle me down, (repair) you dismantle me, you dismantle me.

Hands like secrets are the hardest things to keep from you
Lines and phrases like knives your words can cut me through
Dismantle me down, (repair) you dismantle me, you dismantle me.

Save me from myself
Save me from myself
Help me
Save me from myself
Save me from myself

Oh, oh, things are gonna change now for the better
Oh, oh, things are gonna change

Hands like secrets are the hardest things to keep from you
Lines and phrases like knives your words can cut me through
Dismantle me down, (repair) you dismantle me, you dismantle me.

Hands like secrets are the hardest things to keep from you
Lines and phrases like knives your words can cut me through
Dismantle me down, (repair) you dismantle me, you dismantle me.

Hands like secrets are the hardest things to keep from you
Lines and phrases like knives your words can cut me through
Dismantle me down, (repair) you dismantle me, you dismantle me.

Hands like secrets are the hardest things to keep from you
Lines and phrases like knives your words can cut me through
Dismantle me down, (repair) you dismantle me, you dismantle me.
