V1
He pulled back the drapes
hoping for a different landscape
But as usual it was all the same
Why did it always have to be this way?
just a few leaves had changed
He was ready for something new any day now

CH
What can I do?
I can't take this anymore
It doesn't have to be this way
I have a say, I have a say
What can I try
to hang one more star up in the sky
I can't dismiss
all disaster amiss
but I can't take this
anymore

V2
You walk through the door
Another long day, you know there's still more
Collapse on that couch
Hope that any day now
you can just slow down
I'd make the world stop for you
if I could make it stop for me, too
But inability can only mean
there's still time

CH
What can I do?
I can't take this anymore
It doesn't have to be this way
I have a say, I have a say
What can I try
to hang one more star up in the sky
I can't dismiss
all disaster amiss
but I can't take this
anymore

BR
I've gotta live in this moment
Live out this moment
Live for this moment
Oh, I've gotta live in this moment
Live out this moment
Live for this moment, now

V3
Turn it around
The answer's always simplify
Can't let it get away
Something's different about today, hey yeah


CH
What can I do?
I can't take this anymore
It doesn't have to be this way
I have a say, I have a say
What can I try
to hang one more star up in the sky
I can't dismiss
all disaster amiss
but I can't take this
anymore

He pulled back the drapes
hoping for a different landscape
