Oh, maybe I just wasn't good enough
To blow your mind, you know I've tried
Them silver lines they cut like blades of glass
Not worth the blood we she'd for love

So give it up, stop beating, hearts have gone cold
Had enough bleed-bleeding, it's all been done before
Give it up, stop beating, hearts have gone cold
Hey now, when we gonna wake up?

But fools gold shines like diamonds in our eyes
Thought we had a million, but baby we got nothing
But fools gold shines like words that make us cry
We just keep on digging, finding something better
For the next time, next time
Something better for the next time, next time

So maybe I just wasn't strong enough
To tow the line, make true the lies
The fortune found, now it's all locked away
We've lost the key, how to believe

So give it up, stop beating, hearts have gone cold
Had enough bleed-bleeding, it's all been done before
Give it up, stop beating, hearts have gone cold
Hey now, when we gonna wake up?

But fools gold shines like diamonds in our eyes
Thought we had a million, but baby we got nothing
But fools gold shines like words that make us cry
We just keep on digging, finding something better
For the next time, next time
Something better for the next time, next time

Oh maybe I just wasn't good enough
Cause maybe I just wasn't strong enough

But fools gold shines like diamonds in our eyes
Thought we had a million, but baby we got nothing
But fools gold shines like words that make us cry
We just keep on digging, finding something better

But fools gold shines like diamonds in our eyes
Thought we had a million, but baby we got nothing
But fools gold shines like words that make us cry
We just keep on digging, finding something better
For the next time, next time
Something better for the next time, next time
Something better for the next time, next time
Something better for the next time, next time
