Songs > 13 Days > Lyrics

The moment you leave
you'll be asking for more
but I know what it is for
Still for a time I could act surprised

As soon as it seems
you'll be where you were last
but with no one to laugh at
So I wouldn't try for a second time

When you're alone
there'll be no one to say
whether or not it's ok
Comfort can come in so many forms

Waiting to be shown
every now and again
that you're willing to bend
Where should you go when your soul is torn? (Joel)
Why should you care when your soul is torn? (BB)

It didn't have to be that way
You're just in time for
somebody else's holiday

More like a friend
you know from a dream
that you never would meet
So all of your thoughts would be wasted on her

Climb and descend
when you wanted to rest
if your willing to guess
But that's not a promise I should offer

The race you can take
everyday you're alive
is enough to retire
But that's not a reason to be modest

Where's the mistake
if you humor your pride
and you're willing to lie
At least to yourself you were being honest

It didn't have to be that way
You're just in time for
somebody else's holiday
