  • Come smoke a cigarette and let your hair down
    Then pray for the rain to go away
    I'm trying to forget I let us both down
    Then pray for the sun to come again

    I never thought I could feel so small
    But you're the one that can't live without attention
    I never thought I would lose this all
    But you're the one who needs the fucking intervention

    Now I'm reliving my whole damn life
    And it's a shame that I can't remember
    And now I'm living the same damn lie
    It's a shame, but nothing's forever

    With every new regret I start to wear down
    Then pray for the pain to go away
    I need an amulet, I need a new sound
    I know everything remains the same

    I never thought I could feel so small
    I'm the one who will suffer this detention
    I never thought I would lose this all
    But I accept this is my new education

    Now I'm reliving my whole damn life
    And it's a shame that I can't remember
    And now I'm living the same damn lie
    It's a shame, but nothing's forever

    Now I'm reliving my whole damn life
    And it's a shame that I can't remember
    And now I'm living the same damn lie
    It's a shame, but nothing's forever Writer/s: Dale William Stewart, Franck Marius Louis Pourcel, Jacques Plante, John Stephen Humphrey, Paul Mauriat, Raymond Lefebvre, Shaun Morgan Welgemoed
