Song Timing

4/4

Dear Haley
Can you save me from
The borrowed cloud I'm on
All you've gotta do is try
Pray you're just getting by

Hey wait I thought you made it
How'd your bottled crown fall off
Tell me how'd you get so tired
Fade it down to the wire

Try living a lie and kicking out
The same old guise
Wasting time

So very ordinary
Wait until my bomb goes off
See the actors run and hide
Fake it all in stride

One day we all can say where we're gone
And haunt the ground we're from
Everything's so open wide
Hear within the divide

Try living a lie and kicking out
The same old guise
Wasting time

Ain't it the life
Ain't it the life
Ain't it the life
Got no crime
Just sail on by
Sail on by
Ain't it the life

Try living a lie and kicking out
The same old guise
Wasting time
