  • Ah you've got flaws
    That you won't admit
    Yet you tell me it's a sin
    That I don't believe in
    Yet you traded in your cross
    For a chance to dance with stars
    Now nothing is sacred

    I've given thought to leaving
    F-f-f-for some time
    If only I could read a map
    My moat is New Mexico
    So it's you I wrote

    I started sending you a note
    On how I hope that you're happy
    I hear you're somewhere in the sand
    And how I wish I was an ocean
    Maybe then,
    I'd get to see you again

    And all my friends
    They break and they bend
    They take shape and they tend
    To get better with time
    And I say
    "Who am I to work so much less
    Yet get more
    You all deserve what I am walking towards
    If you want you should move away"

    This has become my weakness
    The golden state wins again
    Perhaps it's time I settle
    Say "it's blue
    At least that's a plus"
    Plus
    I miss you so much

    Why am I scared of people in a room?
    Why can't they see a good time
    Are the people close to you?
    Why don't I just give in?
    Have a drink and shake some hands Writer/s: AMY LEE, TERRY BALSAMO, TODD MCCORD
