pay my tab and tip my hat to the barkeep
take my leave as i walk on into the night
look for the stars, but the stars don't look for me
try to find the end of the road, but no end is in sight

i don't wanna live, but i won't let myself die
i just wanna smile, but sometime all i can do is cry
meet me in the middle of nowhere, i'll be smokin' a cigarette
dreamin' of the days i never got to live yet

gimme three wishes, i wouldn't know what to do
gimme three kisses, i'd give 'em right back to you
gimme one reason why i can't find somethin' new
it couldn't be i'm trapped upon this plane with nothin' left to do

i don't wanna breathe, but i just can't help myself
i wanna leave, but i sit still as a shelf
all i need's somebody to hold me, but i just want to be alone
waitin' for the end to be a friend and take me home

maybe it's lookin' for me
as i walk through the city
maybe it wants me, too
