So make up your mind or die

I said, boy, I’m already gone
I’m already gone
And nothing left except this memory
Of you, you, you

Some people get ahead and some people always lag behind
No matter what they do
Some of us turn and run
Some of us face whatever hurts the most
Whatever changes you
Whatever changes you and


How can a single moment
Always set you up for failure
How does the radio
Know what I wanna hear
Right when I wanna hear it
Before the world explodes
Before the world explodes and
