Structure + Lyrics

Intro

Verse

one chance to show your face
this one shot all you get
pass by your one good thing
lift your head back shoot and chase.

Chorus
never hear you laugh like that, so full. not since you were nine.
unsettled, severing always severing old ties
one last good-bye may last the rest of your life

Verse
learn your restricted ropes.
paint a cross on your left hand.
one good thing signed away
and with it your only hope.

Chorus
attention focused on today.
so quiet slip behind my back.
unsettled, severing always severing dead ties
one last good-bye may last the rest of your life

Interlude

one way trip can work both ways
and loose ends kept untied make better friends
the things you buy may someday leave you

Outro (use verse chords)
can you say full ride?
i can still see you around.
