This is hard to swallow
You keep your thoughts by your pillow
And just so you can adore them
And just so we can ignore them
I'd rather lead than follow
I'd rather stay in the cold
I must have got so old
Well so I've been told
But now you've lost it all

We're running out of time
We have things on our mind
And things that we just don't like
Who'd you wanna see?
Who'd you wanna be tonight?

Forgetting the promises that you made
And how your, your promises easily break
You can see it on your face
And I'm too under it
And I'll count my losses
And I'll count my sins
I hope you've cleared your mind

We're running out of time
We have things on our mind
And things that we just don't like
Who'd you wanna see?
Who'd you wanna be tonight?

We're running out of time
We have things on our mind
And things that we just don't like
Who'd you wanna see?
Who'd you wanna be tonight?

We were young and we were blind
We ignored the warning signs
How were we to know?
How were we to know?

We were close but still so far
We grew apart and out of touch
All I wanted was
All I wanted was to say

We're running out of time
We have things on our mind
And things that we just don't like
Who'd you wanna see?
Who'd you wanna be tonight?

We're running out of time
We have things on our mind
And things that we just don't like
Who'd you wanna see?
Who'd you wanna be tonight?
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
