lyrics

What's wrong with misdirection?
Are your misplaced affections
So far gone that we can't go on?
You never dreamed so large but
You never fell so hard
And lost so much that you couldn't trust

Like you, like me
We could be anyone, we could be anyone
Like you, would you agree
We could be anyone, we could be anyone

What's wrong with second chances?
Are your discreet romances
Too well played to be tossed away?
I only needed time but
You wanted neon signs and brighter lights
Just to prove I liked

Liked you, like me
We could be anyone, we could be anyone
Like you, would you agree
We could be anyone, we could be anyone

History shows us no one can hold
Even the good guys fall
Nobody loses whether you choose this
Even the good guys fall

What's wrong with trying harder?
Are we too battle-scarred
Or too off track and we can't get back?
When will you have enough of
These things that build you up
But tear me down?
Can't you just be proud?

Like you, like me
We could be anyone, we could be anyone
Like you, would you agree
We could be anyone, we could be anyone

History shows us no one can hold
Even the good guys fall
Nobody loses whether you choose this
Even the good guys fall
