lyrics

Forget about the problems of our yesterday
I just wanna get drunk with my friends
She was just a girl that you loved yesterday
Better days are just around the bend

Can you feel the heat? Can you fill up the spaces?
The who, what, and where? The people and places?
The sun's coming up, but I'm feeling down
All my friends don't want me around
If I'm not perfect you can fill in the blanks
The words bundle up and they fill up the tanks
The tank's on full, but I'm feeling empty
And even if you're here, you've already left me

Smoke and mirrors, finally finding I was wrong
Strike a match and let it burn
Lost in the illusion in the corners of my head
Waiting out the storm of everything unsaid

Forget about the problems of our yesterday
I just wanna get drunk with my friends
She was just a girl that you loved yesterday
Better days are just around the bend
Better days are just around the bend

And I don't understand what the point of the race is
And I can't keep up, can't go through the paces
Of a life on the run, so I'm turning in
I need a new start, don't know where to begin
I've never been the type to care where I fall
Never wanted to compete, never answered the call
So can you tell me why I'm always feeling this way?
Soaking up another loss at the end of the day and

Smoke and mirrors, finally finding I was wrong
Strike a match and let it burn
Lost in the illusion in the corners of my head
Waiting out the storm of everything unsaid

Forget about the problems of our yesterday
I just wanna get drunk with my friends
She was just a girl that you loved yesterday
Better days are just around the bend
Better days are just around the bend

Time and time again
We lose sight of what we know
Like the fire within the smoke

(Time and time again)
Somehow we got off track yesterday
Waiting for each today to end
(We lose sight of what we know)
Swallow the lump in your throat, it's ok
(Like the fire within the smoke)
Tomorrow's around the bend

Forget about the problems of our yesterday
I just wanna get drunk with my friends
She was just a girl that you loved yesterday
Better days are just around the bend

Forget about the problems of our yesterday
I just wanna get drunk with my friends
She was just a girl that you loved yesterday
Better days are just around the bend
Better days are just around the bend
