lyrics

Some people live with ice in their blood
take what they want and leave what they don't
I want to feel like I've already won
and not have to struggle to show my metal

sometimes the start is also an end
some people who leave find their way back in
I want to live where the buildings are old
see the same walls my grandfather built
the beautiful lights of an ocean front town
hanging like stars, calling me down
I'm homesick for fun
good times we once had
that rest so far, so far behind shadows cast

the devil sits proud at the edge of a bar
counts all his victories labeled in love and they're captured in song
I know the heat will last well into the fall
it soon will be gone, it soon will be gone
like a summer's song

what do you do when someone you love
will only love you when you're starting to run
some people live with ice in their blood
never think twice or doubt what they've done
it's easy to count things you don't have
they're swollen like blisters on the palm of your hand
I want to feel like I'm more than the sum
much more than the skin the bone and the blood
much more than the skin the bone and the blood
much more than the shadows cast behind all I've done
