How many times can you say that it's over?
How many ways can you say that I love you forever more?
How many times can you make love with your lover?
How many lives and many lies can we live with ourselves?

How many times will you change your religion?
And how many gods do you ask for the answers that grow when you're sad?
What has to break before you make a decision?
‘Cause you never know which way to go, you just get off the bus and go home.

God, tell me the truth, how much is too many?
Give me a sign if we crossed the line.
‘Cause everyone else seems to know the direction,
I'm frozen and I know it.
And I'm out of breath from the speed of life.
And I'm shaking and it's freezing.
‘cause I'm scared to death of the speed of life,
The speed of life.

How many dreams can you break ‘till you're broken?
How many fights can you fight until you fall down on your knees?
How many doors can get slammed in your face ‘till one of them opens?
It's beautiful, it's incredible, it's the danger of life.

God, tell me the truth, how much is too many?
Give me a sign if we crossed the line.
‘Cause everyone else seems to know the direction,
I'm frozen and I know it.
And I'm out of breath from the speed of life.
And I'm shaking and it's freezing.
‘cause I'm scared to death of the speed of life,
The speed of life.

And I'm shaking and it's freezing,
‘cause I'm scared to death of the speed of life,
The speed of life.

The speed of life
