Of all the words that I've spoken
And lies that I've told
Of all the hearts left broken
Begged for, bought, and sold

Lord I'm feeling lonely
Feel like I can't go on
The streets have all grown cold now
The mysteries all gone

She's all gone
She's all gone, gone, gone
All gone now
She's all

Well I ain't getting any younger
Can't you see it in my eyes
She sweet has turned to sour
I think it's time for me to fly

Well my vices have turned to habits
And my habits have turned to stone
The lies chipped away at my smile now baby
While the truth ate me down to the bone

One more step and I swear
I'll be over the edge
I've gotta stop living at a pace that kills
Before I wake up dead

[Chorus]
Good times, bad times
How life loves a tragedy
Heartbreaks, heartaches
How life loves a tragedy

The nights I spent in danger
With strangers I thought were friends
Only to wake in anger
For some pleasure they swore they'd send

I think it's time I move on
Like a rolling stone
Cause I got all the broken dreams I can buy
It's time to sell the ones I stole

[Chorus]

Well I paid the price
For every thrill I got
Those thrills are all long gone baby
But I'm still paying for them like it or not

I think it's time I move on like a rolling stone
Cause I got all the broken dreams I can buy
It's time to sell the ones I stole

[Chorus]
