When disaster it strikes on a daily basis
I'm looking for wisdom in all the wrong places
But still wanna laugh in disappointed faces
You can't help me
I'm blinded by these

Heroes and Thieves at my door
I can't seem to tell them apart anymore
Just when I've figured it out
Well darlin' it's you I'm without

Well, I'm stubborn and wrong
But at least I know it
I keep moving along and hope I can get through this
But maybe this song is the best, I can do it
So I'm patiently waiting on these

Heroes and Thieves at my door
I can't seem to tell them apart anymore
Just when I've figured it out
Well darlin' it's you
Darlin' it's you oh,
Darlin' it's you I'm…

Without your comforting logic
Like these days are the ones I'll miss
And I see a solitude that I can't find without you.
Ah ah, ah
La da da

Seems like I'm getting closer somehow
A flicker of peace that I've finally found
Thank you for believing in me now
'Cause I do need it

Give me a year or two
And I'll mend my ways and see these mistakes and
When I see the truth
Darlin' trust me
When I can't see
I'll be coming back; I'll be coming back, cause there are...

Heroes and Thieves at my door
I can't seem to tell them apart anymore
Just when I've figured it out
Well, darlin' it's you
My darlin' it's you
Oh darling it's you I'm without
Ah, ah, ah.
