lyrics

Dad says lately I've been distant. I've been meaning to make time.
Dad says lately I've been quittin' all the things that make him proud.

I'm much older than I once was, I've been shrinkin' in reverse.
I've been changing with the weather: now I'm cloudy, now I'm cold and clear.

The world is full of hurt, we've got enough but we're makin' more.
And we don't know which way to go, we've got a map but we've no roads.

I'm scared of hell, I'm scared of heaven. I don't believe in either one of them. I'm caught in between.

Lately I feel I'm unfocused, I've been chasin' passing cars.
I've been thinkin' if I caught one I would drive it home to Calgary.

The world is full of hurt, we've got enough but we're makin' more.
And we don't know which way to go, we've got a map but we've no roads.
The world is full of love, we've got so much that we don't know what to do with all this love. Our hearts are bursting! Hearts are bursting!

It hurts like hell, it hurts like heaven to know that this will never change.
It feels like lightning between my teeth, to think a kiss could bring such pain.
It feels like dying inside a dream, to wake with fire inside the veins.
It flays the skin from off my bones to know that I won't ever change,
to know that I won't ever change,
to know that I won't ever change.
