There's things I know I should have mentioned sooner
But I didn't know how
I'm sorry I lost you
I never thought that this could come between us
I know its water and bridges now

But what's the sense in carrying around
This weight, these words are tearing me apart

And that's enough for the back to break
That's enough for a mouth to take
But I've been paying for it since I drove my girl away
And that's the sign of a solemn man
I'll make the best of the best I can
And I'll be better for it if I ever get my chance

That face, I know exactly what you're thinking
But I'm certain this time is different
And that's why I can't pretend that everything is mended
I know I've tried to for too long now

But what's the sense in carrying around
This weight, these words are tearing me apart

And that's enough for the back to break
That's enough for a mouth to take
But I've been paying for it since I drove my girl away
And that's the sign of a solemn man
I'll make the best of the best I can
And I'll be better for it if I ever get my chance

Oh save me from a grey life
Oh save me from a grey life
I paid the price with my soul
Oh save me

And that's enough for the back to break
That's enough for a mouth to take
But I've been paying for it since I drove my girl away
And that's the sign of a solemn man
I'll make the best of the best I can
And I'll be better for it if I ever get my chance
If I ever get my chance
If I ever get my chance
If I ever get my chance
