  • Ah ha, ha-ah-ah

    Left you, falling on the floor
    Headed for the door
    Went straight to Philidelphia
    Oh no, what have I begun?
    Called my mother, said I love her
    Had another and another one
    Questions, questions, suddenly suggestions
    Where was anyone at the start of this thing?
    Hold that gold up over your shoulder
    All I needs a place to grieve

    Oh, it's for the best you didn't listen
    It's for the best we get our distance (oh oh woah oh)
    It's for the best you didn't listen
    It's for the best we get our distance

    Oh lord, I feel alive
    I've gone and saved my soul
    If all that you read is everything you believe
    Then let go, then let go, then let go

    Now I'm over my head
    Acting like I never started over again
    I am the city I'm from
    Always wanting more than just a word on my arm
    Oh, I know, I can't believe
    That I'd let it get to me
    Good to know I won't become
    Everything I'm afraid of

    Oh, it's for the best you didn't listen
    It's for the best we get our distance (oh oh woah oh)
    It's for the best you didn't listen
    It's for the best we get our distance

    Oh lord, I feel alive
    I've gone and saved my soul
    If all that you read is everything you believe
    Then let go, then let go, then let go

    Mama don't cry
    I was once your little baby boy
    So full of love and light
    By the time I turned 25
    I was lost among the pavement
    Lower than the basement
    And I couldn't stand to smile
    I thought of taking my own life
    But mama don't cry
    I found songs among the tragic
    Hung my hat on sadness
    Mom, I think they're trying to keep the grand romantic in me
    Now that we got bottom lines
    But mom, I think I'm ready to free this grand romantic in me
    La -Di Da, La Di Da, La Di Da

    Look out, look out!
    Ah ha, ha-ah-ah, Ah ha, ha-ah-ah
    Ah ha, ha-ah-ah, Ah ha, ha-ah-ah
    Ah ha, ha-ah-ah...

    Oh lord, I feel alive
    I've gone and saved my soul
    If all that you read is everything you believe
    Then let go, then let go, then let go

    Oh lord, I feel alive
    I've gone and saved my soul
    If all that you read is everything you believe
    Then let go, then let go, then let go
