Come on back inside
the fire's growing cold
And i can't say i'm sorry all night
My judgment is clouded
I meant to be true
But the truth is, i'm high as a kite
You and me don't always
Get what we want
Sometimes we don't get
Nothing at all
And I'm well aware I ain't
All you deserve
And maybe we aren't built for the long haul
But i thought we were building something good

You'll have to forgive me
If i don't open up and share
Honey i'm just trying to
Make it home on a spare

When I was a young man
I read about love
Bout the thunder and lightning inside
Daggers and poisons and ships lost at sea
And kingdoms destroyed over pride
But the love that I found never looked like those
It was colder and meaner and harder to break
Sometimes it warms you and fills you inside
Sometimes it strikes like a snake
But i'm holding on i'm holding on to you

I'm sorry for the lean years
And I'm sorry for the cold
For all i couldn't put on the shelf
Told myself you never needed those things
But i was just fooling myself
And maybe you had a few lovers before
Hell, maybe you had a few since
But come on back inside and i'll do what i can
Try to be your brokedown prince
Just don't ask so much of me
