Verse 1

It's nothing new; my life has been always this way.

I'm always standing in the area that's painted in grey.

And I'm thinking, hey, maybe things will change today.

Maybe this time it'll all be different, maybe you will stay.

Chorus

And then?

My same old back luck hits me again.

Something has to go wrong every time,

And I'm plunged back into pain.

And then?

The heart-ache starts to act up again.

I realize I'm gonna get nowhere,

Everything has been in vain.

Verse 2

I look around and see the lucky girls who have it all.

And I'm waiting for you to finally wake up and fall.

Baby, fall for me, don't let your past stand so tall.

And I'm thinking, hey, today I'll get through your wall.

Chorus

And then?

My same old back luck hits me again.

Something has to go wrong every time,

And I'm plunged back into pain.

And then?

The heart-ache starts to act up again.

I realize I'm gonna get nowhere,

Everything has been in vain.

Bridge

I've been broken way too many times, no, stop.

I don't wanna do the same old dance.

Stop now, I don't wanna go through it again, no,

If it's gonna fail, I don't wanna take a chance.

No, my heart is breaking,

My heart is aching,

And I think I'm giving up.

Yes, I'm giving up…

Chorus

And then?

My same old back luck hits me again.

Something has to go wrong every time,

And I'm plunged back into pain.

And then?

The heart-ache starts to act up again.

I realize I'm gonna get nowhere,

Everything has been in vain.
