================================


        I met a new me at 8 a.m.
        the other one got lost
        this was not a trade in
        although I wouldn't believe the cost
        I woke up crying as we said goodbye
        me and my old self, each day he vanished more and more
        as I became someone else

        He actually was murdered
        I'd taken him apart
        but when I put him back together
        I couldn't find his heart
        It was resting underneath a chair
        in a bed of bright tin-foil
        if I pulled back the flaps, I could still see it beat
        I could still hear his voice uncoil, as I said -

        I want a trade in
        a 14th chance at this life
        I met a woman with a thousand faces
        and I want to make her my wife

        How could I have been so mistaken
        how could I think that it was true
        a child that is raised by an idiot
        and that idiot then becomes you
        How could I believe in a movie
        how could I believe in a book
        but most of all how could I listen to you
        such an obvious schmuck
        A life spent listening to assholes
        it's funny but it's true
        so get rid of them I said to myself
        but first I'm, I'm getting rid of you

        I want a trade in
        a 14th chance at this life
        I met a woman with a thousand faces
        and I'm goin' to make her my wife

        Take me over to the window
        my heart said to my head
        please set me on fire
        so we can start again
        I was so wrong that it's funny
        and I can't apologize
        but instead, you can be everything that I'm not
        the second that I die

        Ooohhh, I want a trade in
        second chance at this life
        I met a woman with a thousand faces
        and I want to make her my wife

        Hah

        A 14th chance at this life
        I want a trade in, a thousand faces, a thousand faces
        Trade, I said to me trade, mmmm..
        14th, 14th chance at this -
        - Life
