Every day's the same
Cigarettes and rain
I am holding onto a photograph
I took of you
Just before you left
You were smiling like you do

You were the last train
Headed for a new game
I was on the platform
Trying to think of any way
That I could hold you
I could hold you one last time

Chorus:
Maybe I lost you far too soon
Now there's a hole in my heart
And it's swallowing the room

There's a lot of things I want
Some of them I need
The rest is an illusion
Just a mixed up American greed
I don't know where it all came from

It's the dream and the obsession
Now a chronic disconnection
I am hanging up the phone
I don't like the tone
And it's a long road, baby
It's a long road back from here

Chorus

Now I'm losing all the love I got
Oh baby I'm weeping for the world
That we've created
And the children we have not
We are scared and alone
And poised for the kill
If the guns don't get us
Then maybe our conscience will

Maybe we gave in far too soon
And that piece of our heart is off
reaching for the moon
Maybe I lost you far too soon
Now there's a hole in my heart
And it's swallowing the room

Every day's a new day
A green and a blue day
Every day's a chance to start again
Make it right
So come on, baby
You know I'm gonna love that way
