Vanity Theft – In Retrospect lyrics

Magnificent starts can lead to disappointing faith
All the bridges that we built
Just from a spark can be
Engulfed in flames, well

Get a grip they are decisions that we made
Get a grip it's a decision that you made

You came from a different place
To discover different faces
Well they don't read just like your favorite books,
They're way too hard to place

The night has come, You're not quite sure where you will stay,
Get a grip it's a decision that you made.

Be careful, You might just get what you want
But what you want isn't what you need
Such poor predictions
You can practice indecision
while you get back on your feet

You held a heart
It was more than just a magnificent start
You are the paradigm of purity
Tanscended teenage love

Oh just wait
Complexities of a fickle mind
State will do more than tear this tryst apart

He'll take it back
This time the consequence is permanant
He'll drink himself to sleep
Over the carelessness and the secrets he couldn't keep

Finally a returned phone call and hear her say
"Get a grip a boy,
it's a decision that you made"


Get a grip, And get back on your feet, Get a grip, And get back On your feet!

We made a pact
We're allowed to react
But I swore on my name
That we all won't cry if you don't

We made a pact
We're allowed to react
But I swore on my name
That I won't cry if you don't

This is all how we react
And I swear by name we will get past this
If I have any say in the matter
And as a matter of fact, I do
