lyrics

[Intro]

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

[Verse 1]

When all is said and done
Have you said enough
(Ooh, ooh)
You’ve been taking things for granted
‘Cause it’s what you’ve always done
(Ooh, ooh)

Your mother let you down again
And damn, I know the way it feels
You’ve taken all of their advice
But sometimes you just take the pills

You’re sick of all the madness
But you’re so used to the way it feels
The way it feels

And waiting on your dad to be a father is an overkill
Excuses are the only thing fucking thing that ever made him real
And after all he did to you
You’re still seeking his sex appeal, well

[Pre - Chorus]

For all
All I know
For all
All I know

[Chorus]

Is that life moves fast
And all the memories last
But you fade so slow

Yeah, this life moves fast
And all the memories pass
But you fade so slow

Yeah, you fade so slow, yeah
Yeah, you fade so slow, yeah

[Verse 2]

When all is said and done
You’ve never done enough
(Ooh, ooh)
You’ve been taking me for granted
‘Cause you’ve never known real love, yeah

You never even said to me
I’m sorry that I let you down
Don’t call yourself a father
‘Cause I never had my dad around

I know that I’m not perfect
But I’d never let my family down
And you let me down

And Kyle’s doing well without you
Only made a few mistakes
If you’d had hung around
Then maybe he’d have gone the other way

But I just want to thank you because you made us who we are today
And we’re okay

[Pre - Chorus]

For all
All I know
For all
All I know

[Chorus]

Is that life moves fast
And all the memories last
But you fade so slow

Yeah, this life moves fast
And all the memories pass
But you fade so slow

Yeah, you fade so slow
Yeah, you fade so slow

[Bridge]

You never knew, you never knew
How much I needed you
You never knew, you never knew
How much I needed you
You never knew, you never knew
That I never needed you
You never knew, you never knew
You never knew
