I won't cry myself to sleep, like a sucker.
I won't cry myself to sleep, if I do, I'll die.
Now you fall asleep with another, damn you.

'Member how we used to escape for the summer?
Fireworks and sparkles would light up the black skies.
We'd hold on tight for our lives to each other.

Hello, hello, where did you go?
We were two kids living life on the run, like the american dream, baby!
Nothing to lose and we'd get messed up for fun.
We went too fast, too young.

But I won't cry myself to sleep, like a sucker.
I won't cry myself to sleep, if I do, I'll die.
Now you fall asleep with another, damn you, damn you.

Flowers in my hair and your breath smelled like whiskey.
Promised anywhere that I'd go, take you with me.
Dancing on your feet like a child to the radio.

Hello, hello, where did you go?
We were two kids living life on the run, like the american dream, baby!
Nothing to lose and we'd get messed up for fun.
We went too fast, too young.

But I won't cry myself to sleep, like a sucker.
I won't cry myself to sleep, if I do, I'll die.
Now you fall asleep with another, damn you, damn you, damn you, damn you.

Every once in a lifetime, dreams can come true.
Now when the stars shine, you meet somebody like you.

But I won't cry myself to sleep, like a sucker.
I won't cry myself to sleep, if I do, I'll die.
I pray you're life is sweet, you ****er, damn you, damn you, damn you
