lyrics

~verse
They say the sky's the limit but there's footprints on the moon
All these dreams that I'm having will be coming to me soon
There's no reason to think any different I've known it all along
Not being arrogant but confident and take my place up with the stars
There's nothing that can stop me now I've got this in the bag

~chorus
But I didn't hear the sound of the gun go click
In the pitch black and now its like I'm on the run

~verse
I drove my way down through Mexico stopped at every single bar
I lived out on the pueblo did what I had just to survive
Met a sweet young farmer girl but you know she weren't no fool
All she did was let me meet her dad messed around and bought a mule
So I'm headed back towards the border I've got nothing more to lose

~chorus
All that's left of this life I don't want
You can keep it cause I don't give a fuck

~bridge
Cause all this life we're living is nothing but one big lie
We run around in a daydream yet let our dreams pass us by
Busy with all you can't change it neglects the stuff that you can
Nurture the things you can change and not the things that you can't

~chorus
All that's left of this life I don't want
You can keep it cause I don't give a fuck

~verse
Well I went down to the graveyard and I fell down on my knees
I said Lord what you're doing could ya hurry up please
Cause I'm through with all this hurtin there's no life left in me
I've lived too much already I've seen all there is to see
All those dreams they are too fuzzy they mean nothing more to me

~chorus
All that's left of this life I don't want
You can keep it cause I'm done trying my luck
