LYRICS

We started out just fine
Had a basement suite down on the eastside
I worked a nine to five
Came home smiling almost every night
Life was great; our hopes were high
We spent all of our afternoons outside
Life was good until that night - when I lost my way
And it went all downhill from there

So won't you hold me in your arms
Though they're marked with all the scars
From the times that I have let you down before
Well, this time I have changed
I swear it on my mother's grave
I just wish there was a way I could keep my word

Well, soon we lost the place
And I started betting money at the races
And if I ever won I was gonna buy us a brand new start
But now we stand in a line
Hoping for a meal and place to stay tonight
I just can't believe these drugs could ruin a life

So won't you hold me in your arms
Though they're marked with all the scars
From the times that I have let you down before
This time I have changed
I swear it on my mother's grave
I just wish there was a way I could keep my word

Now if you'll take a second chance
I believe we could make a stand
We'll leave all of this poison behind
I swear I'll never let you down
Yeah we'll blow this one-horse town
We'll hitchhike until we reach the ocean

We'll start out again
Without all of the booze and heroin
We'll be like settlers on a foreign shore
