This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things (feat. Josh Franceschi and You Me At Six)
10.
. . .


I'm sorry we took this from you
did you know you were never gonna take it back
I'm sorry we left you behind
you need to know it was never our plan of attack
I'm sorry we took your crown
we never wanted to become enemies
I'm sorry we made up your mind
you can't bring us down!

and you'll never know
never get it right
coming in for you, going in for the kill
just like we always will.

I'm sorry for what we've done
the time has come to throw this shit away.
I'm as surprised as you
I didn't know how deep it would cut your pride
we gone and left you behind
there's no apologies for what we've done
we're better than your kind
you can't bring us down.

and you'll never know
never get it right
coming in for you, going in for the kill
just like we always will.

you can't bring us down
we're the best in town

. . .


So this is how it’s gonna be,
You and me are history
We will never look the same
But the end is coming

Your time is running out
The rain is falling
So raise your voice and shout:

This is a blackout
And you’ll find out
It’s gonna come and take everything you love away
Blackout, coming to your town
We’ll never run away
So stand and fight another day

So this is where it all began
This is where the story ends
We will never need to leave
But we keep running
The walls are coming down
This is a warning
So raise your voice and shout:

This is a blackout
And you’ll find out
It’s gonna come and take everything you love away
Blackout, coming to your town
We’ll never run away
So stand and fight another day

Oh,
Going out, going out, going out (x12)

This is a blackout
And you’ll find out
It’s gonna come and take everything you love away
Blackout, coming to your town
We’ll never run away
So stand and fight another day

This is a blackout, this is a blackout, this is a blackout.
Woah

. . .


We sat, sat on top of the world
You said, said that you'd be the girl
To stop me, stop me fooling around
I said, you'd keep my feet on the ground

Say you will stay away
Say you will forget (x2)

I'm sorry, sorry for what I've done
So sorry, for what I have become
Was this what was always missing?
Was I, was I not listening?

Say you will stay away
Say you will forget (x2)

Don't ask me to rule with my heart or yours will break

We sat, sat on top of the world
You said, said that you'd be the girl (Say you will)
To stop me, stop me fooling around (Say you will forget)
And I said, you'd keep my feet on the ground

Say you will, say you will (Sat on top of the world)
Say you will forget (Say you will forget)
Say you will, say you will (Sat on top of the world)
Say you will forget (Say you will forget)
Say you will, say you will (Sat on top of the world)
Say you will forget (Say you will forget)
Said that you'd be the girl.

. . .


I hate what you are
And every word that you say
You're fucking nothing to me
And after all you've betrayed
I can take your lies
And everything running through
Just you wait and see

We watch the flames
Take over our lives
Melt us away
Turn the darkness into light
We are the heat
That will keep you awake
With open eyes
Before the fire, before the fire breaks!

You hate what I am
And everything that I say
I'm what you wanted to be
You saw yourself betrayed
You can't have my life
And everything running through
You will never be me, yeah!

We watch the flames
Take over our lives
Melt us away
Turn the darkness into light
We are the heat
That will keep you awake
With open eyes
Before the fire, before the fire breaks!

I am the fire, the fucking fire
I am the fire, the fucking fire
Fire, I am the fire
The fucking fire, I am the fire

As the flames rise up, you can wait for dead
But then we carry on, step back and watch us burn!

We watch the flames
Take over our lives
Melt us away
Turn the darkness into light
We are the heat
That is keeping you awake
With open eyes!

I am the fire, the fucking fire
I am the fire, the fucking fire
Fire, I am the fire
The fucking - the fire
I am the fire

. . .


Opening
We are the children of the night
we are the children
We are the children of the night
we are the children

As daylight fades we celebrate
The end is near your end is hear
The night it brings us our fate
Knee deep in mud we want your blood

This isn't love this is war
This is the night we said
We would be fighting for
This isn't love this is war
This is the night we swore
That we would call our own

Chorus
We are the children of the night
we are the children
We are the children of the night
we are the children

The fire burns into the sky
The sun goes down your end is here
Lighting eyes in the night
Be one of us be one of us

This isn't love this is war
This is the night we said
We would be fighting for
This isn't love this is war
This is the night we swore
That we would call our own

We are the children of the night
anekatips.com
we are the children
(repeat)

This isn't love this is war
This is the night we said
We would be fighting for

We are the children of the night
we are the children
(repeat)

. . .


Well I've got no doubt about it
'cause I've seen your eyes are hiding that you know
You let this carry on too long
Never meant, never meant to go along
Yeah and it came from out of nowhere
And you said that you just don't care, you've let it grow
Those days of nightmares by your side
Realise, realise you're the one who dies

You said - you said - you said you wanted me...

When everything is said and done
We won't be here tomorrow
You've made your bed, sleep tight my love
I hate that you brought sorrow

And it's something to believe in
'cause this bullshit's left me sinking for something more
We spent our time, we spread those lies
And the truth that's hidden behind your eyes
And someone sink my teeth
So I know what I am been feeling for far too long
I think what you know (Is what you want)
Is just a show!

You said - you said - you said you wanted me...

When everything is said and done
We won't be here tomorrow
You've made your bed, sleep tight my love
I hate that you brought sorrow

You said you wanted me...
You said you wanted me...
You said you wanted me dead!
You said you wanted me...
You said you wanted me...
You said you wanted me dead!

When everything is said and done
We won't be here!

When everything is said and done
We won't be here tomorrow
You've made your bed, sleep tight my love
I hate that you brought sorrow

When everything is said and done
We won't be here tomorrow
You've made your bed, sleep tight my love
You brought me fear and sorrow

You said you wanted me
You said you wanted me
You said you wanted me dead!
You said you wanted me
You said you wanted me
You said you wanted me dead!

Verse 1

Please don't say,
It's over today.
I never wanted to walk away,
I never asked to anyway.

Please don't make,
Don't make this mistake.
I'm too afraid to walk away,
Do I have what it takes to stay?


Chorus

We're silent,
(We're silent)
Too silent when we speak.
We're silent,
(We're silent)
We're silent when we speak.
We're silent,
It's killing me.
(Time and time again)
We're silent,
(Silent)
It's killing me.
(Time and time again)


(Time and time again) (x2)


Verse 2

So take my hand,
(I'm falling to pieces)
Make me understand,
(I want to believe)
When the end began,
(I can't be on my own)
When it all turned into sand.
(Don't leave me on my own)


Chorus

We're silent,
(We're silent)
Too silent when we speak.
We're silent,
(We're silent)
We're silent when we speak.
We're silent,
It's killing me.
(Time and time again)
We're silent,
(Silent)
It's killing me.
(Time and time again)


Final Chorus

We're silent,
(We're silent)
Too silent when we speak.
We're silent,
(We're silent)
We're silent when we speak.
We're silent,
It's killing me.
We're silent,
(Silent)
It's killing me.
(Time and time again)


Outro

Please don't say,
(Time and time again)
It's over today.
(Time and time again)
I never wanted to walk away,
(Time and time again)
I never asked you anyway.
(Time and time again)

You drink, you drink alone
So alone you're waiting for life to begin
Leave now, and I'll follow you home
I wake you up to live how you wanted to live
Black eyes, and broken bones
'cause I know you'll spill blood by the end of the day
Dirty kisses, and filthy lies
I can't help you're leaving

Those were the days
He's gonna blow them away

I love myself and I wanna live
I love myself, I love myself
I love myself and I wanna live
I love myself, I love myself

You think, you think out loud
Speaking tones you can't speak under your control
With what you've got you should be proud
You've taken your life and filled in the hole
Stop now and save us all
'cause I know you'll be gone by the end of the day
And paint your brains all over the wall
'cause I'm tired of waiting

Those were the days
But now he's blown them away

I love myself and I wanna live
I just wanna be awake for your kiss
I love myself and I wanna live
I'll do anything, I'll do anything

Just get up! Get up! Get up!
Come on, get it up!
Get up! Get up! Get up!

Aggghhh! Come on!

Don't give up! Give up! Give up!
Give it up! Give up! Give up! Give up!

Aggghhh!

Just get up! Get up! Get up!
Come on, get it up!
Get up! Get up! Come on!

Aggghhh!

I love myself and I wanna live
I love myself and I wanna live
Yeah!

I love myself
And I love myself
And I love myself
And I love myself

Yeah!

. . .


I don't care what you're thinking
I don't care what you're saying
When everything is gone, we'll still be begging for more

She looks at him
Her heart beat starts to melt
She said "I made you up to hurt myself"
You leave the room and I smell you on my clothes
You're dangerous and beautiful
My thorn and my rose

Let's just make things work.
There's nowhere better then here

I don't care what you're thinking
I don't care what you're saying
When everything is gone, we'll still be begging for more
[x2]

I hate the pain that I went and put you through
'Cause I'll never be perfect 'cause I'll never be you
What the air doesn't see, the heart can't breath
But all that pain went away when I saw you leave

Let's just make things work
There's nowhere better then this

I don't care what you're thinking
I don't care what you're saying
When everything is gone, we'll still be begging for more
[x2]

Say what you want, it would always end
This was never gonna be simple
Say what you want, it was all pretend
This was never gonna be simple
[x2]

I don't care what you're thinking
I don't care what you're saying
When everything is gone, we'll still be begging for more
[x2]

This was never gonna be simple (begging for more) [x4]

This was never gonna be simple [x2]

. . .


Oh!

They start to rise up from the ground
They're going to kill everyone in town
Then from the hills we're under attack
I see the bloodlust in their eyes
They want to stand, let's see who survives
Hell comes to Earth but I'll send it back

I'll never see you again, never see you again
I don't believe that this has happened
This is the day of the dead, come and take my hand
I don't believe that this has happened

Well if we'll go down with my hand
I know the __________ dance
My simple shoes will make you move
I hate the way they look at me
The ___________ of catastrophe
They'll watch you feed, and cut our food

I'll never see you again, never see you again
I don't believe that this has happened
This is the day of the dead, come and take my hand
I don't believe that this has happened

The day of the dead
And we watch you moving
We will shoot to kill

Never see you again, never see you again
This is the day of the dead, come and take my hand
I don't believe that this has happened

The day of the dead!
The day of the dead!
The day of the dead!
The day of the dead!
The day of the dead!
The day of the dead!
The day of the dead!
The day of the dead!
