Tragedy + Time

On the edges of the sharpest knives

In the middle of the darkest nights

Always knew that I would find you here

In a puddle of the bravest tears

 

I've seen enough to know it's lonely where you are

Above the crowd

Feet dangling from a rooftop (a rooftop)

She waits from ledges for a voice to talk her down

 

And nothing matters but the pain when you're alone

The never-ending nights when you're awake

When you're praying that tomorrow it's okay

 

There will be a time to crack another smile

Maybe not today or for awhile

But we're holding on to laugh again some day

To laugh again some day

 

All that matters is the time we had

Doesn't matter how it all went bad

Never wonder what it might be like

Shut the door, say goodbye

 

When faced with tragedy

We come alive or come undone

 

So don't hold back, let it shape you like an ocean

Even the deepest scars in time will fade

 

Nothing matters but the pain when you're alone

Never-ending nights when you're awake

When you're praying that tomorrow it's okay

There will be a time to crack another smile

Maybe not today or for awhile

But we're holding on to laugh again some day

Yeah, we're holding on to laugh again some day

 

And sometimes you have to go back

To know just where you have been

But we're old enough to know that

What has been, will be again and again

 

And the bravest of faces

Are the ones where we fake it

In the roles that we play

 

Nothing matters when the pain is all but gone

When you are finally awake

Despite the overwhelming odds, tomorrow came

 

And when they see you crack a smile

And you decide to stay a while

You'll be ready then, to laugh again

 

Nothing matters but the pain

(We are tragedy, yeah, we are sympathy)

Nothing matters but the pain

You see what you want to see

 

Nothing matters but the pain

(We are misery, and distant memories)

Nothing matters but the pain

We all learned to laugh again

Yeah, we all learned to laugh again

We all learned to laugh again
