Listen

 

Did you have a good run?
Did you laugh, did you try to make it fun?
Nobody cares in the end
what you sold or what you said,
just what you done

Looking back was never hard
Booze-stained glasses and a 20-20 heart
You can spend your days just wondering
about what could have been
but it won’t get you far

I been wasted so long, I couldn’t see straight if I tried
Been frustrated more times than I’ve been satisfied
I been beat down and dragged around and left without a clue
and in the end I guess I got nothing left except to hold on to you

I guess what they say still holds true:
You can’t pick your family, and they sure as hell never asked for you
Flesh and blood don’t mean a lot,
’til one day it’s all you’ve got
and if you’re lucky, they’re still there for you

I been wasted so long, I couldn’t see straight if I tried
Been frustrated more times than I’ve been satisfied
I been beat down and dragged around and left without a clue
and in the end I guess I got nothing left except to hold on to you

Driving blind, driving fast
Trying hard to beat the past
This rearview mirror is getting hard to see
through all the smoke and tears
I hope this old ride lasts

I been wasted so long, I couldn’t see straight if I tried
Been frustrated more times than I’ve been satisfied
I been beat down and dragged around and left without a clue
and in the end I guess I got nothing left except to hold on to you

(Hold on)
Hold on to you
(Hold on)
Hold on to you
(Hold on)
Hold on to you
