RARE & SHORT

Can you still count the times that you were wrong
all the times say told you to be strong
all the times they asked you for a smile
„Forget about the bitch who’s gone!“
it’s easier said than done
you think it isn’t even worse the trial
but she will never come back and that is a fact
she already has new man
be honest you’re not the type of boy
for staying friends

Remember the good times
though they were rare and short
and even if it seems they never will come back
it isn’t easy as we know
but if we’re true we’re much to old
to be so god damn sad
so wipe those tears away
and listen to all those sad songs with me
we need to bear this pain as long as our hearts beat

you need to rise up from your grave you dig
your life is what you make of it
sounds simple but it’s also true
so get yourself a chewing gum
put your fucking pink glasses on
play punk rock songs instead of lonesome blues
tear off the sleeves of your Jawbreaker Shirt
and try to be a little happy
if you would like to
you could sing along with me
