Well I don't wanna be the one to have to tell you everything's alright
When everything's so wrong
But I'm not gonna lie to you and tell you you're the only one who's ever felt this way
I'm just asking you to stay
Oh, Misfortune, she moves like a whisper
Although patient in her nature, she took your faith the day you kissed her
Here we stand, you've got your life on the line
It's never easy but you just have to give it some time.

We build it up and then it all falls down
I've come to find it's just the way of the world
And i'm not gonna let you slip away
It's not worth giving up the life you've made
This isn't your escape/

And I know you don't wanna listen
The empty bottle's gone right to your head
The way it's done before
But I just wish you'd open up your eyes and see the damage that you've done
To yourself, to your woman, to your son.
Oh, Misfortune, she moves like a whisper
Though abrasive in her nature, it always proves hard to resist her
Here we stand, you've got a pistol to your head.
It won't be easy but I swear to you, I meant the words I said

Chorus 2X

I'm not saying things will be the way they were back then
Just believe me when I say that it won't always be this bad
Don't tell me it's far too gone, don't you tell me it's been too long
I think it's time to stand

Chorus 2X
