You say that you never had a mum
And nobody needs you
So cry, so cry
You believe that life rolls by 
Just to deceive you
By your time, by your time 
You're getting old 
And the longer you take 
The slower your pain will grow
It will grow, it will grow
You can close your eyes
And hope that when you open them 
You've got a brand new life
Do you find, you can't hide? 

You can give your life
You can lose your soul
You can bang your head
Or you can drown in hole 
Nothing lasts forever
But you can try
Look around you
Everyone you see
Everyone you know
Is going to shine

Grow up and make the best of what you've got
Of what you've got, 
Of what you've got
The days are going by and you're sittin' on your arse 
And you're wondering why, why, why, yeah 

You can give your life, or
You can lose your soul
You can bang your head
Or you can drown in a hole 
Nothing lasts forever
But you can try
Look around you
Everyone you see
Everyone you know 
Is going to shine 

You can bang your head
Or you can drown in a hole 
Nothing lasts forever
But you can try
Look around you
Everyone you see
Everyone you know
Is going to shine 

You say that you never had a mum
And nobody needs you 
So cry, so cry, so cry
You believe that life rolls by just to deceive you
By your time, well by your time 
Your getting old 
And the longer you take the slower you'll pain will grow
It'll grow, it'll grow
You can close your eyes
And hope that when you open them
You've got a brand new life

You can give your life or
You can lose your soul
You can bang your head
Or you can drown in a hole
Nothing lasts forever
But you can try
Look around you
Everyone you see
Everyone you know 
Is going to shine

You can bang your head
Or you can drown in a hole 
Nothing lasts forever
But you can try
Well look around you
Everyone you see
Everyone you know
Is going to shine

Don't, don't, don't, don't you do it
