I remember when we held each other while the world changed
I was eleven, you were thirteen - we never seemed to act our own age
How could we know in a heartbeat things would never be the same?
What a fool I was to think nothing's ever coming our way
It's her little brother's dream to be on the same team some day
A sentimentalist, a natural, but now I don't know what to say

I can't go on believing 'cause I know there's a reason
I can't go on if you go on this way

Well, everybody wants a piece, but that's how it goes
They'll use you and bruise you and leave on the side of the road
Don't confuse me for one of them, I'm never putting on a show

I can't go on believing 'cause I know there's a reason
I can't go on if you go on this way

This ain't about you and this ain't about me this time
It's about looking past the things we share inside
So don't turn your head
You could be dead, you could be on your own

I can't go on believing 'cause I know there's a reason
I can't go on if you go on this way [3x]
Go on, go on, go on
