lyrics

hi my name is paige
i won't remember you tomorrow
don't take it personally
cause it's not you it's me

see i'm too busy feeling sorry for myself
so everyone i love just takes a backseat

i've given everything i have
to get me nowhere
i know that life's not supposed to be fair

but fear is so unbiased
you'd get it if you tried it on for size
it's quite unbearable

to watch kids half your age take stage
and have their whole lives ahead of them

i used to be one
...................................................................
how many times do you think people pass out
while trying to hold their breath over bridges?
breathing in deep and their holding in tight
and they're crashing their cars
all over wishes
....................................................................
hi my name is paige
i won't remember you tomorrow
now i'm gonna catch a ride
to my basement apartment

and watch taped episodes of Daria from 2001
and i'll probably play guitar

while i inhale the fumes that kill the fleas that crawl on me at night
it's just for now, so i guess it's alright

i guess that i should take what i can get since
one day i'll be homeless

and sometimes i scare myself to death
that i've been willing to bet my whole life on this roulette

well all bets are off now
...............................................................................
i want things that everybody wants but won't receive
we can't all be race car drivers and rocks stars on tv
i've spent most of my adult life chasing after dreams
waiting for a day to come where i might get lucky

cause most times
it's not up to me
and i've been watching other people achieving things
that i can only dream
