lyrics

COMPROMISES

So you compromised with your dreams
Just like everybody always does
Said you'd rather die than give up
Just like everybody always does
That was so long ago
It feels like it never was

Hey, don't be a stranger anymore
Get yourself all moved in and
Comfortable in your skin
This life you didn't imagine
Will be all yours to
Begin, begin, begin again and again
My friend begin again

So you compromised with your dreams
When you couldn't hack it anymore
Had no prospect of success
So you wised up to the score
No limo waiting with caviar
On toast and champagne at your door

Hey, don't be a stranger anymore
Get yourself all moved in and
Comfortable in your skin
This life you didn't imagine
Will be all yours to
Begin, begin, begin again and again
My friend begin again

So you compromised with your dreams
Just like everybody always does
And your life mundane as mud
Just got stranger than your fantasy was
Now you're married with children
And two cars in the garage

Hey, don't be a stranger anymore
Get yourself all moved in and
Comfortable in your skin
This life you didn't imagine
Will be all yours to
Begin, begin, begin again and again
My friend begin again
