Tragedy + Time

Rise Against


On the edges of the sharpest knives
In the middle of the darkest nights
Always knew that I'll find you here
In a puddle of the bravest tears
I've seen enough to know it's lonely where you are

Above the crowd feet dangling from a rooftop
She waits from ledges for a voice to talk her down

Nothing matters but the pain when you're alone
The never ending nights when you're awake
When you're praying that tomorrow its okay
There will be a time to crack another smile
Maybe not today or for awhile
But were holding on to laugh again someday
To laugh again someday

All that matters is the time we had
Doesn't matter how it all went bad
Never wonder what it might be like
Shut the door say goodbye
When faced with tragedy
We come alive or come undone

So don't look back, let it shape you like an ocean
Even the deepest scars in time will fade

Nothing matters but the pain when you're alone
The never-ending nights when you're awake
When you're praying that tomorrow its okay
There will be a time to crack another smile
Maybe not today or for awhile
But were holding on to laugh again someday
Now were holding on to laugh again someday

And sometimes you have to go back
To know just where you have been
Well were old enough to know that
What has been will be again, and again

And the bravest of faces are the ones where we fake it
And the roles that we play

Nothing matters when the pain is all but gone
When you are finally awake
Despite the overwhelming odds tomorrow came
And when they see you crack a smile
And you decide to stay awhile
You'll be ready then to laugh again

Nothing matters but the pain
(We are tragedy, yeah, we are sympathy)
Nothing matters but the pain
And you see what you want to see
Nothing matter but the pain
(We are misery, a distant memory)
Nothing matters but the pain
But we all learn to laugh again
Yeah, we all learn to laugh again
Oh, we all learn to laugh again
