When We Die

Album: The Great Burrito Extortion Case (2006)
  • I know that it's early
    And it's too hard to think
    And the broken empty bottles, a reminder in the sink
    But I thought that I should tell you
    If it's not too late to say
    I can put back all the pieces
    They just might not fit the same

    There's nothing worth losing
    Especially the chance to make it right
    And I know that we're gonna be fine
    And the tattooed mistakes are gonna fade over time
    As long as we live and time passes by
    And we won't get it back when we die

    I know it's been years now
    And I don't look the same
    And the hopes and dreams you had for me you thought went down the drain
    And the room looks so empty where my pictures used to be
    And I can't say that I blame you
    But you can't blame me

    There's nothing worth losing
    Especially the chance to make it right
    And I know that we're gonna be fine
    And the tattooed mistakes are gonna fade over time
    As long as we live and time passes by
    And we won't get it back when we die

    Come over come over 'cause I gotta know
    If I am doing this all on my own
    Come over come over how can I tell you if you're not here?
    And I know that we're gonna be fine
    And the tattooed mistakes are gonna fade over time
    As long as we live and time passes by
    And we won't get it back when we die

    And I know that we're gonna be fine
    And the tattooed mistakes are gonna fade over time
    As long as we live and time passes by
    We won't get it back when we die

    Come over come over whoa-oh-oh
    Come over come over whoa-oh-oh
    Come over come over

    I gotta know
    Won't get it back when we die
    I know that it's early Writer/s: JARET REDDICK, BUTCH WALKER
