Lyrics

    So long ago, I don't remember when
    That's when they say I lost my only friend
    Well they said
    she died easy of a broken heart disease
    As I listened through the cemetery trees

    I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn
    The long broken arm of human law
    Now it always seemed such a waste,
    she always had a pretty face
    So I wondered how she hung around this place

    Hey, come on try a little
    Nothing is forever
    There's got to be something better than
    In the middle
    But me and Cinderella
    We put it all together
    We can drive it home
    With one headlight

    She said it's cold
    It feels like Independence Day
    And I can't break away from this parade
    But there's got to be an opening
    Somewhere here in front of me
    Through this maze of ugliness and greed
    And I seen the sun up ahead
    at the county line bridge
    Sayin' all there's good and nothingness is dead
    We'll run until she's out of breath
    She ran until there's nothin' left
    She hit the end, it's just her window ledge

    Hey, come on try a little
    Nothing is forever
    There's got to be something better than
    In the middle
    But me and Cinderella
    We put it all together
    We can drive it home
    With one headlight

    Well this place is old
    It feels just like a beat up truck
    I turn the engine,
    but the engine doesn't turn
    Well it smells of cheap wine, cigarettes
    This place is always such a mess
    Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn
    I'm so alone and
    I feel just like somebody else
    Man, I ain't changed,
    but I know I ain't the same
    But somewhere here in between
    the city walls of dyin' dreams
    I think of death, it must be killin' me

    Hey, hey hey come on try a little
    Nothing is forever
    There's got to be something better than
    In the middle
    But me and Cinderella
    We put it all together
    We can drive it home
    With one headlight
