This town was a lovers stage
But now you can't recognize
The streetlights that are daggers to your eyes
You can't find your bearings
You're slipping into the ground
The scene has no color and no sound

You still believe in me
After the things I've done
You fear for what we have become
The ground is uneven
We stumble from day to day
You shelter where it's easy
Although your feet are like lead
But you gotta get underway

Drag your heart up to the starting line
Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
It's too easy to get left behind
I know you've been kicked around
But tie up your thoughts and lay them down on me

Each heart is a paper kite blown around by the breeze
Love won't rest 'til it brings you to your knees
Some find it easy, some will never even know
You think you've done your journey
Then you stumble and find that there's such a long way to go

Drag your heart up to the starting line
Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
It's too easy to get left behind
I know you've been kicked around
You wanna be lost and not be found
But let's take the back way into town
Drink to the bad times
Lay them down on me

Girl, I still believe in you
You're too good to fall so low
We're gonna find a better life I know
Things will be clearer
As soon as we make a start
We'll be that much nearer
We're too old to just stand here waiting to break apart

Drag your heart up to the starting line
Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
It's too easy to get left behind
I know you've been kicked around
But tie up your thoughts and lay them down on me
On me, on me
