For What It's Worth

lyrics

3 am, and I’m home again.
I’m alone again, and it’s cold again.
Turn up the heat, and tuck myself in.
Damn this single bed, damn this state I’m in
All these lights they come, crashing through my head,
And where have you gone to my old friend?

And how many faces have passed through my door?
I can’t seem to fight them anymore, ‘cause…

For what it’s worth, you’ve stolen my heart completely,
And I can’t take it back, it’s yours for the keeping,
So I’ll throw away everything about love,
I’ve ever known, ever hoped,
‘cause it’s easier being alone.

Yeah I’m stoned again,
Yeah this high is sinking into my bones again,
And I guess I am happy, can’t you see me smiling?
I remember you, and your worn out shoes,
You were happy too, but that memory fades to black and blue,
And it hurts now just to think of you.

And how many faces have passed through my door?
And what the hell are they looking at me for?

For what it’s worth, you’ve stolen my heart completely,
And I can’t take it back, it’s yours for the keeping,
So I’ll throw away everything about love,
I’ve ever known, ever hoped,
‘cause it’s easier being alone.
