Lyrics

If I forgive you for all the things that you've done
While everyone was working, I was out having fun
There's got to be more to life than just growing old, and I'm too tired to keep on building up your low down city of gold
All I can see is it ain't really me after all
Tell me bout the lies you've told
are your convictions really really that bold, can I try to find some way to lose control
Are all your secrets hidden by what has been forgiven
Do you feel that you have nothing left
And is it worth the price you pay for selling your soul-to live in your god forsaken city of gold,
Well I know that I have been here before, cause I remember feeling the same
Walking down that same dirt road, knowing it's life that's suppose to change

If I forgive you for all the the things that you've done
While I was looking for contentment you were headed straight for the sun
There's go to be more to life than just growing old
And I'm too tired to keep on building up your low down city of gold, well I'm just too tired to keep on, I just too tired to keep on , I'm too damn tired to keep on keeping on...
