lyrics

I was a local hero, you were the girl next door
And I can't keep dark about the dirty truth anymore
No good saying it's only a phase
When all I see around me these days
Are broken hearts and all of the old cliches

I was a fish out of water, you were the belle of the ball
All the kings horses never helped me at all
You're caught up in these passion plays
But all I see around me these days
Are broken hearts and all of the old cliches

I was a wounded soldier, and you're still playing the game
When all's said and done it's why I never mention your name
Guess you could say that I'm set in my ways
And all I see around me these days
Are broken hearts and all of the old cliches

I've got all the time in the world, and you've got none to spare
But here at the back of my mind I really don't care
The pain is gone but the memory stays
'Cause all I see around me these days
Are broken hearts and all of the old cliches
