*Lyrics*
Intro
Oh, Oh

Verse 1
If I had my way,
If I had to lose,
Wouldn't take back one thing.
Never had much to choose.

Then it dawned on me,
Coming down on you,
Like a cold sky raining
Under a burning moon.

Been waiting all your life,
Your wish is coming true.
Bless your heart for beating
Me right out of you.

Pre-Chorus
Miss the misery,
Need a reason for a change.
Need a reason to explain,
so turn it on again

Chorus
Don't change your mind.
Your wasting light.
Get in and let's

Post-Chorus
Go, Go.

Verse 2
What a nice long leash.
What a nice tight noose.
Never worked for me but
Sure would look good on you.

Been waiting all your life,
Your wish is coming true.
Bless your heart for beating
Me right out of you.

Pre-Chorus
Miss the misery,
Need a reason for a change.
Need a reason to refrain,
so turn it on again

Chorus
Don't change your mind.
Your wasting light.
Get in and let's

Post-Chorus
Go, Go.

Bridge
Miss the misery,
Give me reason for a change.
Miss the misery,
Give me reason to refrain.

Miss your misery today.
Miss your misery today.
Come on and turn it on again.

Chorus
Don't change your mind.
You're wasted light.
Don't make this right.
Don't make this right.
Get in and let's

Post-Chorus
Go, go.
