Cold War Kids - First

Treating that right, broken so bad
You made a vow, never get mad
You play the game, though it's unfair
They're all the same, who can compare?
First you lose trust, then you get worried
Night after night, ball after call
Dropping like flies, who woke you up
On the front lawn, smackers turn out
It's not your house, where'd you go wrong?
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

Flying like a cannonball, fall up to the earth
Hold me as a veteran, who eat the dirt
I am not the lucky one, I do not deserve
Way you went forever when doing that first
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

Then comes a time, when it's short line
Turn into a round, get a re-ride
Call it a dog, not in his soul
Ticking up clocks, gravities pull
First you get close, then you get buried

Flying like a cannonball, fall up to the earth
Hold me as a veteran, who eat the dirt
I am not the lucky one, I do not deserve
Way you went forever when doing that first
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

You're going silent, the silent treatment
It's not a valid now, don't deny what you make
You get excited, you got excited
You got a feeling for, at least you can pretend
You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now and can't afford more things
You get excited, you got excited!

Flying like a cannonball, fall up to the earth
Hold me as a veteran, who eat the dirt
I am not the lucky one, I do not deserve
Way you went forever when doing that first
Flying like a cannonball, fall up to the earth
Hold me as a veteran, who eat the dirt
I am not the lucky one, I do not deserve
Way you went forever when doing that first

First you get hurt, then you feel worried
First you get close, then you get worried
First you get hurt, then you feel worried
First you get close, then you get worried

You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now and can't afford more things
You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now and can't afford more things
