my lyricsbox
Get out of Hollywood
drive into the hills
rolldown the top
and just throw away your pills
you'll never forget her
so why do you even try?
things'll get easier
as the days go creeping by

broke my heart
saw it coming from the start
i really hate to see the shape i'm in
broke all the rules
and you know life can be cruel
but i think it's time i learned to swim

show me
there still can be some mystery
i haven't found
throw me
a lifeline to the lost at sea
don't let me drown

and if i had my way
tell you what i'd do
drive down to the lake
before the sky gets blue
fill up my bottle
with water from the spring
because i read somewhere that it cures everything

broke my heart
saw it coming from the start
i really hate to see the shape i'm in
broke all the rules
and you know life can be cruel
but i think it's time i learned to swim

show me
there still can be some mystery
i haven't found
throw me
a lifeline to the lost at sea
don't let me drown

broke my heart
saw it coming from the start
i really hate to see the shape i'm in
broke all the rules
and you know life can be cruel
but i think it's time i learned to swim

show me
there still can be some mystery
i haven't found
throw me
a lifeline to the lost at sea
don't let me drown

show me
a way out of this misery
i haven't found
throw me
a lifeline to the lost at sea
don't let me drown
don't let me drown
don't let me drown
don't let me drown
This song is from the album "Going Somewhere" and "Company of Strangers".
