Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
It's all a game of this or that, now verses then
They're better off against worse for wear

And you're someone who knows someone
Who knows someone I once knew

And I just want to be a part of this
The road outside my house is paved with good intentions
Hired a construction
Crew 'cuz it's hell on the engine

And you are the dreamer, and we are the dream
I could write it better than you ever felt it

[Chorus]
So hum hallelujah, just off the key of reason
I thought I loved you, and it's just how you looked in the light
A teenage vow in a parking lot, til tonight do us part
I sing the blues and you swallow them too

[Verse 2]
My words are my faith, to hell with our good name
Remix up your guts, your insides x-rayed
And one day we'll get nostalgic for disaster
We're a bull, your ears are just a china shop
I love you in the same way, there's a chapel in a hospital
One foot in your bedroom, and one foot out the door

Sometimes we take chances, sometimes we take pills
I could write it better than you ever felt it

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu

(Hum hallelujah, hum hallelujah)
A teenage vow in a parking lot, till tonight do us part
I sing the blues and swallow them too
So hum hallelujah, just off the key of reason
I thought I loved you, and it's just how you looked in the light
A teenage vow in a parking lot, till tonight do us part

[Outro]
A teenage vow in a parking lot, till tonight do us part
A teenage vow in a parking lot, till tonight do us part
I sing the blues and swallow them too
