[Verse 1]
Cheated and lied, broken so bad
You made a vow, never get mad
You play the game, though it's unfair
They're all the same, who can compare?
First you lose trust, then you get wary

Night after night, bar after club
Dropping like flies, who woke you up
On the front lawn, sprinklers turned on
It's not your house, where'd you go wrong?
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

[Chorus]
Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?
I did not deserve, to wait around forever when you were there first
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

[Verse 2]
Then comes a time, in a short life
Turn it around, get a rewrite
Call it a dark, night in his soul
Ticking up clocks, gravity's pull
First you get close, then you get worried

[Chorus]
Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?
I did not deserve, to wait around forever when you were there first
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

[Verse 3]
You're going silent, the silent treatment
It's not inviting now, don't deny what you meant
You get excited, you get excited
You got a feel it, oh, at least you can pretend
You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
You get excited, you get excited!

[Chorus]
Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?
I did not deserve, to wait around forever when you were there first

[Chorus]
Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one
I did not deserve, to wait around forever when you were there first

[Outro]
First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried

You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
