Lyrics

Streets are filled with broken glass
You get buried by the past
And give me just a little taste
Lay this mask to waste

Take me home

My mind is racing, take me home
My body's aching, so alone
I'll make you want to stay with me
Befriended by the enemy

One more time

And every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
All these words that I hear spoken
Just promises broken now

Looking outside from my window sill
Throw another coin in the wishing well
You'll never find
What you're looking for

Fifteen miles
Your dim light shines from so far away
Your sad smile is all I see
When I say

Every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
All these words that I have spoken
Just promises broken now

From the hotel satellite
Don't look like you're living right
Here's a deal you can't refuse
You ain't got as much to lose

Can you tell your troubles to
Someone who won't laugh at you?

It's alright

As I watch you walk away
Hoping part of you will stay

It's alright

And every little thing about this tells me
Nothing out there is ever gonna help me
All these words that I hear spoken
Just promises broken now
