You said hey kid there's nothing for you up in them clouds.
So why do stare and sing so loud?
I don't know but one day that sky's gonna fall down,
And I'll be just fine.
I'll be singing at it's side.
And you can run all you want.
You'll get nowhere fast.
There's a reason for those lungs kid.
Once they're used up, you can't give 'em back.
So don't look back, 'cause you'll regret.
Those rainy days you can't forget.
That sunday morning's afternoon the one you lost and the look they gave you. Summers spent in southern towns.
The matinee and your mother's gown.
And how you used to have a reason to wake up.
And I can't say that I fully comprehend your reasons for giving up.
You can say whatever you please, but don't blame it on luck.
This isn't high school kid, this is real life...
Live it how you want to.
But don't bother coming back to this town, everytime you're lied to.
And you can run all you want.
You'll get nowhere fast.
There's a reason for those lungs kid.
Once they're used up, you can't give 'em back.
So don't look back, 'cause you'll regret.
Those rainy days you can't forget.
That sunday morning's afternoon.
The one you lost and the look they gave you.
Summers spent in southern towns.
The matinee and your mother's gown.
And how you used to have a reason to wake up.
Living in the city just ain't so pretty at night.
When you look up you can't see a god damn star in the sky.
And it's not like you asked for this.
But it's not like anyone cares.
And I'll sing how I like with my head in the sky.
Yeah I'll sing how I like with my head in the sky.
