You read them all out loudBest foot forward, cause you're a manAs lonely as you feel right nowWhere is my beautiful life?I'm not livin' here, I'm not livin' here anymoreI don't live here anymoreI don't live here anymorePut that away and talk to meI'm not the only one with a fantasyAs lonely as you feel right nowPut that away and talk to meCould you tell me about the early days?Could you tell me about the early days?Could you tell me about the early days?I'm in a waiting room after every inhalationThey're keeping me full todayWhere is my beautiful life?I'm not livin' here, I'm not livin' here anymoreI won't know pain anymoreI won't know haze anymore
