To the Hilt

  • Oh, it seems a long time ago
    Oh, we didn't know
    Before we had seen anything
    We believed in everything
    All those times you warmed my hand
    Maybe things weren't easy as they seem

    We backed each other to the hilt
    We backed each other to the hilt
    Now I live in this house we built

    Hated you for leavin' me
    You were my muse for so long
    Now I'm drained creatively
    I miss you on my team
    Hated you for walkin' out
    I blew up and you were gone
    So they say it's the industry
    But I miss you on my team

    People say we're better off, you couldn't keep up
    I still keep one broken piece
    The one that fits in that chip on your shoulder
    When we made our master plans
    Is this where you thought we would be standing?

    We backed each other to the hilt
    We backed each other to the hilt
    Now I live in this house we built

    Hated you for leavin' me
    You were my muse for so long
    Now I'm drained creatively
    I miss you on my team
    Hated you for walkin' out
    I blew up and you were gone
    They say it's just the industry
    But I miss you on my team

    We started this together now you're gone
    And when we said forever we were naive
    You saw me as a superstar
    And I was a case you helped them to see

    Hated you for leavin' me
    You were my muse for so long
    Now I'm drained creatively
    But I miss you on my team Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
