Good Riddance – Up & Away lyrics

You've sworn allegiance to your dreams
But still it seems so hard
That tightrope that you walk
Why can't you put it down
Drink your way through one more
Clouded chapter of your life
The hands reaching out to help you
Only seemed to push you further away

Your time's up
And away
You've made your choice now there's nothing left to say
Your times up
And away

Mistreated and abused
But they couldn't steal your heart
Everyone was so confused
But your friends all played their part
Most likely to succeed
Still you threw it all away
Now your dreams lie buried next to you they're gone forever

Where's the spark in your eye
I miss your smile
You're burning inside out
Did you want to?
Everything they told you to make the bad things go away
Everything that they kept from you
Everything I wanted to say
