How to lose before beginning:
Cut the tie when it comes loose
Find a girl to try and save
and wait for one to save you too

see, the station sign it rattles
down the boxes stop and start
I used to walk this place with you
the waiting's not the hardest part

and now you're gone
and I'm not done
now you're gone
now you're gone and I'm not done with you

Wonder if you still remember
the time I tried to cook for you
didn't know what I was doing
22 with too much to prove

so I put in a dozen peppers
because I know you liked it hot
the food was a complete disaster
you could've left, but you did not

and now you're gone
and I'm not done
now you're gone
now you're gone and I'm not done with you

I am stranded
in our past life
I been here a while, but you've been gone a long time
we are tangled
in your perfect lines
I keep going your way, but I don't want to lose mine
if you come back around
with that new found look in your eye
I can't deny you
Don't want to try to

station sign keeps on moving
used to mean I'd come this far
I used to know why I was here
the waiting's not the hardest part

and now you're gone
and I'm not done
now you're gone

I am stranded
in our past life
I been here a while, but you've been gone a long time
we are tangled
in your perfect lines
I keep going your way, but I don't want to lose mine
if you come back around
with that new found look in your eye
I can't deny you
Don't want to try to

How to lose before beginning:
Cut the tie when it comes loose
Find a girl to try and save
and wait for one to save you too
