One:Day:Life – This Is How It Ends lyrics

I hope to god we make it
We're running low on backup plans tonight
I'm scared to death of failing
I'm throwing everything I've got in to
Making sure that it's not over and we're not out

This is how it goes
You'd never guess we're heroes from the hoods and the headphones
A little shy at first
But give us time we're building up to something that you'll love

We are six months late
But nothing's changed
You're all still waiting for us
To come through as the seconds count down
Save the day
We are specialists in second chances
Third time lucky this time round

Close enough to taste it
But could have guessed it's bitter-sweet by sight
Just promise me it's worth this
I promise I'll keep going even though
We are catalysts for close-calls and sellouts

This is how it goes
You'd never guess we're heroes from the hoods and the headphones

This is how this all should end now

This is how it goes
Trying to make beginners luck hold out til we turn pro
Never let a good thing get in the way
Of talking up a good game we never play
And calling out the bad guys
Just to save the day again
