Of all the words that I've spoken 
And lies that I've told
Of all the hearts left broken  Begged for, bought, and sold

Lord I'm feeling lonely
Feel like I can't go on
The streets have all grown cold now
The mysteries all gone

She's all gone
She's all gone, gone, gone
All gone now
She's all

Well I ain't getting any younger 
Can't you see it in my eyes
She sweet has turned to sour
I think it's time for me to fly

Well my vices have turned to habits 
And my habits have turned to stone 
The lies chipped away at my smile now baby
 While the truth ate me down to the bone

One more step and I swear 
I'll be over the edge
I've gotta stop living at a pace that kills  Before I wake up dead

Good times, bad times 
How life loves a tragedy 
Heartbreaks, heartaches 
How life loves a tragedy 

The nights I spent in danger 
With strangers I thought were friends 
Only to wake in anger 
For some pleasure they swore they'd send

I think it's time I move on 
Like a rolling stone
 Cause I got all the broken dreams I can buy
It's time to sell the ones I stole 


Well I paid the price 
For every thrill I got
 Those thrills are all long gone baby
But I'm still paying for them like it or not

I think it's time I move on like a rolling stone
 Cause I got all the broken dreams I can buy
It's time to sell the ones I stole
