Sit here and think it over
One more time around the block again
Waiting for you to come home late again
See me up and leave abuse at my door again

I don't want that to be
The story of our life together

It wasn't meant to be like this
An idealistic dreamers paradise
Ruined by too many late nights
Too many wandering thoughts

A long time ago I blinked
I looked back and you had changed
You were not who I had loved
Who I had spent so many empty nights with
Simply enjoying each other
Being with one another

I don't want that to be
The story of our life together

It wasn't meant to be like this
An idealistic dreamers paradise
Ruined by too many late nights
Too many wandering hands

Young lives with fresh minds
Dreamt out a plain existence
That was everything we needed
But you needed more than I could give

I didn't want that to be
The story of our life together

It wasn't meant to be like this
An idealistic dreamers paradise
Ruined by too many late nights
Too many wandering days away

I didn't want that to be
The story of our life together
