Spent your best years with someone else, left me sitting on the shelf, the things you miss, you never knew exist. Spent your best years with someone else, my expiration date went south, now it tastes like sour grapes when we kiss.
So they’ll set you back and wreck you and say you don’t belong, as the satellites they fall from outer space, sitting there like vultures on the piles of their bombs, watching as this world blows away.
Spent your best years with someone else, left me sitting on the shelf, the things you miss, you never knew exist. I made mistakes and I’ll admit that, but all I remember is I was drunk as shit, and oh the way that we kissed.
The sirens go off, then we’ll go up, to the rooftops, watch this whole world blow up. Then there will be no hope for tomorrow, there will be no more yesterdays, throw regret to the wings of this atomic wind and we’ll watch as this world blows away.
