Rise Against – Tragedy + Time lyrics

[Verse:]
On the edges of the sharpest knives,
In the middle of the darkest nights,
Always knew that I would find you here,
In a puddle of the bravest tears.
I've seen enough to see it's lonely where you are.

[Pre-Chorus:]
Above the cloud,
Been tangling by the rooftop (the rooftop),
She wait from ledges,
For advice to talk her down.

[Chorus:]
Nothing matters but the pain you're all alone,
The never ending night when you're awake,
When you're playing out tomorrow it's okay.
There will be the time to crack another smile,
Maybe not today or for a while,
But we're holding on to laugh again someday day,
To laugh again someday day.

[Verse 2:]
All that matters is the time we had,
Doesn't matter how it all went bad.
Never wonder what it might be like,
Shut the door, say goodbye.
When things grew tragically (when things grew tragically),
We come alive or come undone.

[Pre-Chorus:]
So don't look back,
Let it shape you like a notion.
Even the deepest scars,
In time will fade.

[Chorus:]
Nothing matters but the pain you're all alone,
The never ending night when you're awake,
When you're playing out tomorrow it's okay.
There will be the time to crack another smile,
Maybe not today or for a while,
But we're holding on to laugh again someday day,
Yeah, we're holding on to laugh again someday day.

And sometimes you have to go back,
To know just where you have been.
But we're old enough to know that,
What has been will be again,
And again.

And the bravest of faces,
Are the ones where we fake it,
In the roles that we play.

Nothing matters when the pain is all but gone,
When you have finally awake,
Despite the overwhelming odds tomorrow came.
And when they see you crack a smile,
And you decide to stay awhile,
You'll be ready then to laugh again.

(Nothing matters but the pain...)
We are tragedy,
Yeah, we are sympathy.
(Nothing matters but the pain...)
You see what you want to see.
(Nothing matters but the pain...)
We are misery,
And distant memories.
(Nothing matters but the pain...)
But we all learn to laugh again.

[Outro:]
Yeah, we all learn to laugh again.
Oh, you'll learn to laugh again.
