lyrics

I could have given up a long time ago
I could have cut and run, packed it in, traded up
What was I waiting for

I have been looking out over the edge again
All of this missed potential, scattered plans, false alarms
Can you just make it end

All of my life I swear that I tried to be a good person
But it isn't working anymore
I got a new plan
We'll steal a getaway van
Til we go down in flames screaming out glory days
And when the cops have all been called I will look at you and say in all sincerity
I wouldn't want it any other way
Our great escape

I have been waiting up for the world to change
There are so many things I could say that I could save
That I could rearrange

All of my life I swear that I tried to be a good person
But it isn't working anymore
So I got a new plan
We'll steal a getaway van til we go down in flames screaming out glory days
And when the cops have all been called I will look at you and say in all sincerity
I wouldn't want it any other way
Our great escape

The sound of all the ways I have failed is all around
The weight of all I have given up still ain't enough to get me out
And even if all other ways that I can't find would have shown themselves in time
That's not a gift I could call mine

All of my life I swear that I tried to be a good person but it isn't working anymore
I got a new plan we'll steal a getaway van til we go down in flames screaming out glory days
And when the cops have all been called I will look at you and say in all sincerity
I wouldn't want it any other way
Our great escape
