lyrics

The first music that was made
Was probably coming from a man in pain
Probably dreaming of a girl
Who ripped his whole heart open wide
Left him for the ages singing
But lonely

My god, I must confess
I look at the lights of Los Angeles
I look at the streets and I’m sure
That I’m not the first man
Who’s gone and sang this song
But since I started singing it I don’t feel lonely

True, I’m blowing my lines
True, I’m always claiming
That even if the words are wrong
The only thing that matters
Is nailing the feeling

I know I have to die
But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to try
To fill the moments while I’m alive
With all the music I feel inside

When you’re around me, I’m alive

Hang on, children — we’re alive
Hang on, pilgrims — we’re alive
Hang on, seekers — we’re alive
Hang on, losers — we’re alive
Hang on, heartbreak — we’re alive
Hang on, sickness — we’re alive
Hang on, anger — we’re alive
Hang on, broken — we’re alive

Even a hundred years of pain’s worth this ride
Nine, ten breaths
I can’t believe I’ve even had one breath
That was all mine

I learned
When I was five
That I’d have an ending
No bow
No curtain call
No velvet descending

They said that all flesh had battled
But kid, the clocks clinched every war
I said, “Maybe I’ll be the one who can’t be ended
Maybe I’ll be the one who can not fall”

But as I grew
I slowly found myself aware for once and all
That I could not be helped
Yet, the strangest hope
Began to cloak me in my dreams
I could sense the darkness
I was in before I’d breathed
I was once the nothing
And the nothing wasn’t bad
Thank you for my something
I was here
It was grand

I can’t say I’m not scared to bend
But I’ll keep singing till the end

My god, I must confess
I look at the lights of of Los Angeles
I look at the streets and I’m sure
That I’m not the first man
Who’s gone and sang this song
But since I started singing it I don’t feel lonely

I wrote this music for you
Each note a searchlight for you
I wrote it all
But you wrote
Me
