Lyrics

Like they say, Rome wasn't built in a day.

Yeah that's true, but it doesn't matter to you.

Oh you see, it used to matter to me.

You're gonna find, it's just a matter of time

before you wake up and smell the coffee

why can't you just own up to the truth and cop a plea?

Yesterday you got carried away.

Yeah you did

Ain't no doubt about it

Like a song, you were here now you're gone

a memory of a melody.

And if, if you would just make up your mind

I swear it won't be as hard as you think it's going to be.

Yes I said if, if you would just break up the ties that bind you

from growing into something that you know that you could be.

wake up and smell the coffee

Why can't you just own up to the truth and cop a plea?
