Song Length 3:12 Genre Rock - Alternative, Rock - General
Tempo Medium (111 - 130) Lead Vocal Male Vocal

I got it right on the first try
Fucked it up
It didn't take much time to realize
Step aside

Long lost
Carried on
Married off
Best wishes always
Its obvious you're better off

But how do I get it out?

A parking lot
A mountain top
A shivering stop in Montreal
Red wine
Wanting eyes
Sunday night
I'll survive
But will I ever feel alive again?

Another night alone
Another year gone
You never turned around
I gotta get it out

But I can't help wondering
No I can't stop wondering
