Not So Lucky – This Is War lyrics

I can't stand the way that you're acting like everything's fine, how you just turn your back when we're falling, we're falling. So if you can live with the damage you've done, by all means continue this road that you're on.

You're always talkin', like you hate how things are, but you don't do a damn thing to change them at all. That's what happens when you turn back that shoulder. It kills me to say this: You're just getting colder.

I won't hide what you do to me, but you don't feel nearly anything. This is war, sometimes you gotta fight for what you want the most.

I wish I could shatter our world as we know it, and put back the pieces so we don't feel broken, but changing our lives takes a little conviction, so quit playing games and just make a decision now.

Bring it back again.

I mean honestly, you say you want this, and you need this, and nothing else even matters. Well if that's true, then stop waiting around, stop being stagnant. Get up and make a change for yourself, and do it right now!
