We burn out in the dark
We are invisible stars
We are a question mark
Be careful what you ask for

We are broken glass
We never had a chance
We want what we don't have
Be careful what you ask for

We will never die
Put your hope in the sky
To burn a perfect light
Be careful what you ask for

I'm sorry we are living in the car
This isn't what you wanted when you gave me your heart
I'm sorry I got lazy and mean
This isn't what you wanted when you married me

Life looks better when you waste away the day
Life looks better when you make it all again
Life looks better when you drink away the pain
Life looks better when you look away

We burn out in the dark
We are invisible stars
We are a question mark
Be careful what you ask for

We are broken glass
We never had a chance
We want what we don't have
Be careful what you ask for

I know you get mad at me
When your card gets denied at the market down the street
I know that you wanna leave
Yeah, this isn't what you wanted when you married me

Life looks better when you waste away the day
Life looks better when you make it all again
Life looks better when you drink away the pain
Life looks better when you look away

We burn out in the dark
We are invisible stars
We are a question mark
Be careful what you ask for

We are broken glass
We never had a chance
We want what we don't have
Be careful what you ask for

You wanna believe
The world can be perfect
That anyone can be redeemed
The getter's always better than bad
That's where it all goes bad

Just when you think that everything is gonna be alright
That's where it all goes bad
Just when you think that everything is gonna be alright
That's where it all goes bad

We burn out in the dark
We are invisible stars
We are a question mark
Be careful what you ask for

No guess who's around
Be careful what you ask for
This isn't what I ask for
Be careful what you ask for
This isn't what I wanted to see
Be careful what you ask for
This isn't what I asked for
Be careful what you ask for

Life looks better
When you look the other way
Baby look the other way
Baby, do yourself a favor
Look the other way
