lyrics

I think I'd do it all again.
The only question now is when.
And as for you, you'll just be thankful for the change.
It might take more than what I've got,
But at least we'll say we took a shot,
And if we fail, we'll go in a spectacle of flames.

'Cause if someone else might have noticed,
The whole thing might have had a purpose.
We'll be looked upon as doing something big.
And if I leave something behind,
Even a spark in someone's eye,
That's my reward for all the things that I just did.

And in a year I might just ask,
"Have you fulfilled your chosen path,
Or are you trying your best, but you need just one more year?"
I won't hold it against you.
In fact, I may just give you two.
I'd want the same compassion if you were standing here.

Oh, so break the corners of my mind,
Which need someone to analyse,
As if my life was on the line.
Oh, in you I think I've found the one,
Who'll tolerate me 'til I'm done,
And understand that what's inside is not right.

And as with ninety-one percent,
Of everyone I've ever met,
I had a life and thoughts before I learned your name.
It's more than likely that I will,
Once I forget your favourite film,
Find myself free to carry on in the same vein.

But if you have the right effect,
You'll play until the story ends,
And I'll be in the bleachers hoping that you do.
'Cause I've convinced myself, for now,
That it is far beyond my power,
To dictate whether or not I'll be with you.

Oh, so break the corners of my mind,
Which need someone to analyse,
As if my life was on the line.
Oh, in you I think I've found the one,
Who'll tolerate me 'til I'm done,
And understand that what's inside is not right.
