Lyrics

I live in this place
And I won't be leaving anytime soon
I know I'll be doing this
For the rest of my life

So why don't you give me back the last
Give me back the last 20 years
They melted away like ice on my tongue
They melted away like all the fun
They melted away like all of those who ever loved me
They melted away like all of those that I ever put above me

Yeah well everything gets old - even though I like the money
Every night I stumble home to a room
Just in time to watch the countdown spin
Spinning like a rare butterfly whose heart holds the pin
Spinning like a gambler who bet everything on a win

I know I'll be doing this for the rest of my life
I know I'll be doing this for the rest of my life
I know I'll be in this place for the rest of my life
