lyrics

Well I need somebody to hold me close 'cause I'm right and ready to overdose on loneliness, what a mess I'm in
And I need somebody to blow my mind 'cause I've been feeling more than kind of bored here, and a little ignored here
So I'll close my eyes, 'cause there ain't nothing left to see
And I'll bide my time, 'cause I've been waiting patiently

There's no love, there's no truth
There's only waiting and waiting and waiting for something new
There's no reason, not the good or the bad
There's no justification for the times that we've had
There's no blame, just the footsteps behind and the scars that never fade

She said why the hell can't you just leave me alone, I ain't your comfort, I ain't your home so don't lay your head down; I'll let you know when and if I want you around
I don't know why I keep getting it wrong
I'm a broken-hearted pessimist, but I still belong to that group of fools that don't believe in bliss but we still believe a kind-hearted woman exists
Somewhere out there, there's gotta be just one left for me
But my resumé makes it look pretty unlikely

There's no love, there's no truth
There's only waiting and waiting and waiting for something new
There's no reason, not the good or the bad
There's no justification for the times that we've had
There's no blame, just the footsteps behind and the scars that never fade

I got the same old story to tell
Life's my lover and she treats me well
I'd be lost without her, she got me wrapped around her finger
But sometimes I think I wanna get away
She says if I go I can't come back to stay
No I can't get just one minute to myself, it's me and life or there's nobody else
Her jealousy is just another dagger in my side
So I know this time that I can't get out of this alive

There's no love, there's no truth
There's only waiting and waiting and waiting for something new
There's no reason, not the good or the bad
There's no justification for the times that we've had
There's no blame, just the footsteps behind and the scars that never fade
