lyrics

I won't be the one to collapse at the door
underneath all of this burden, my future secure
like an ugly bag of bones
Lord, there's got to be more
Oh, let's do this
I could wait around for the okay to go
I could live with my mistakes
Lord, you reap what you sow
But when it's time for cashing it
then I'll finally know that I blew this
Hey

Hurt's gonna hurt you, child
So you need never ask why
But time's gonna hurt you more
if you don't even try

When you get right down to the end of the day
and you've lost your heart with your mind in the way
you should up and leave but you're just gonna stay singing
Woah, woah

If you're ever, ever
happy where you stand, you can give yourself a hand
If you're clever, clever
never let it go, grab it fast and keep it close

I don't get involved with the A and the B
cause a journey's only made of the steps in between
Take the blinders from my eyes and I'll finally see
I can do this
Hey

Hurt's gonna hurt you, child
So you need never ask why
But time's gonna hurt you more
if you don't even try

Cause when you get right down to the end of the day
and you've lost your heart with your mind in the way
you should up and leave but you're just gonna stay singing
Woah, woah

If you're ever, ever
happy where you stand, you can give yourself a hand
If you're clever, clever
never let it go, grab it fast and keep it close

Just a couple years worth of living to do
If I'm working for the end, then I'm missing the clue
that the future is the now and the now is in you
Oh, I knew this
Hey

Hurt's gonna hurt you, child
So you need never ask why
But time's gonna hurt you more
if you don't even try

When you get right down to the end of the day
and you've lost your heart with your mind in the way
you should up and leave but you're just gonna stay singing
Woah, woah
Woah, woah
Woah, woah
