Well it's hard to find the words to say
What no one would say to you when you were 'round
The loneliest caged bird sings the saddest song
And you were never one to keep us guessing long
If you ask me what went wrong
I'll tell you nobody is doin' fine
Were all fucked up and doin' time
The gates of Eden elude people like ourselves

I think about you every now and then
More now than I ever did when you were down
All reservations pass when chances slip away
All songs play better from confusion

Now I sit and I wonder how
Everyday gets a little shorter and I always feel I'm losin' out somehow don't wanna let another day go by without creation
Now if you ask me what went wrong
When your fallin' you're the only one that doesn't see the distance sacrifice yourself to save yourself
Now we don't always walk the line and broadcast how we hurt sometimes
And still at times it seems nobody wants to know

Give me some time I might remember everything you ever did or said to me

If you ask me what went wrong
I'll tell you nobody is doin' fine
Were all fucked up and doin' time
The gates of Eden elude people like you and I

I think about you every now and then
More now than I ever did when you were down
All reservations pass when chances slip away
All songs play better from confusion...confusion...
