I met the girl of my dreams so many times it seems
she'll be the girl of my dreams until she's mine you see
but then I will get bored of her
pissed off and annoyed with her
turn away with after played with
with no words to say to her
cause things can only get so
so good before they're bad
and just like everybody else
I want those things I can't have
with the picking and the choosing
in the end its me who's losing
no girl by my side
the story of my life it seems

Well things can only get so good
before its bound to take a turn for the worse its understood
cant always be
swinging and hitting
look around theres
pretty women
and they're begging
for attention
but it ain't no
intention of yours
to have things falling right into their places
another stolen glance across a sea of distant faces
the taller they say that
you standing gonna bring you only closer to the flame thats bound to burn you
again and again

So you've seen the good and the bad
you've seen the happy and sad
you've seen the ups and the downs
you've seen the smiles and the frowns
because if everyday
well the world loses space
then somebody dies and the space gets replaced
or by the baby booms
or the tornado-typhoons
will come along and spray
everybody away again
and is it true what they say
what goes up must come down
young people grow taller
grow old and grow smaller
