  • Looking out the window out on the street
    I don't know what happened, I'm out on my feet
    I hear my mother calling my name
    I still come running but I ain't the same

    You can change the channel
    Take the phone off the hook
    Avoid the headline but you'll never grow up baby if you don't look

    When I saw him go down
    Felt like somebody lied
    I had to hold my breath till the coast was clear
    When I saw him go down
    Felt like somebody lied
    I had to close my eyes just to stop the tears

    You're used to winning, how did it feel?
    Did you hear the screaming? It was unreal
    What did they pay you? What did it cost?
    How long did it take you to know that you lost?

    You can hit the shower
    Fill the place up with steam
    And close the curtains
    But when you woke up, man, it wasn't no dream

    When I saw him go down
    Felt like somebody lied
    I had to hold my breath till the coast was clear
    When I saw him go down
    Felt like somebody lied
    I had to close my eyes, close my eyes
    Just to stop the tears

    Looking out the window out on the street
    My boy and his mother and I think of me
    I'm feeling the slip again, I don't wanna fall
    You said it was nothing
    But maybe you're wrong

    'Cause when I saw him go down
    Felt like somebody lied
    I had to hold my breath till the coast was clear
    When I saw him go down
    Felt like somebody lied
    I had to close my eyes just to stop the tear
    Just to stop the tears
    Just to stop the tears Writer/s: ALEX CAMERON, BRANDON FLOWERS, MARK AUGUST STOERMER, RONNIE JR. VANNUCCI
