Lyrics

[Verse 1]

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

[Pre-Chorus]

Never hear you laugh like that, so full

Not since you were nine

[Chorus]

Unsettled, severing

Always severing old ties

One last good-bye may last the rest of your life

[Verse 2]

Learn your restricted ropes

Paint a cross on your left hand

One good thing signed away

And with it, your only hope

[Pre-Chorus]

Attention focused on today

So quiet, slip behind my back

[Chorus]

Unsettled, severing

Always severing dead ties

One last good-bye may last the rest of your life

[Bridge]

One way trip can work both ways

And loose ends kept untied make better friends

The things you buy may someday leave you

[Outro]

Can you say full ride?

(I still see you)

Can you say?

(I still see you)

Can you say full ride?

(I still see you around)

Can you say?

(Around)
