All I wanna do
is soak up the sun, have some fun.
The change would do me good,
and I would if the snow would cease.
It looks peaceful from inside, but
you can’t hide the fact that everyday
is a winding road. That makes it hard
to make a stand; make demands.
If it makes you happy I’ll do what it takes.
One of my favorite mistakes was
taking a gamble on you. You’re sweet;
I’m sour; dour. I’m leaving Las Vegas!
