I heard that you would suffer for your art

The leafy streets ain't really living hard

All you learned were kitchen table songs

You sang about anything

That was everything

But what you really want

 

The Delaware is dark and cold as ice

A mirror for a million city lights

On the stage where anything is true

You could be someone

You could be no one 

So which one are you

 

Don't let it end

You'll have your day

Don't give it up so easy

(Don't let it end)

Or walk away 

From a life that's short on crazy

(Don't let it end)

It's so much easier to let the path grow in

But don't you ever let it end

 

Anyone would want to have it all

It's only called a fallback if you fall

By the way, the bills don't pay themselves

When you’re getting nowhere

It's the same everywhere 

Dreams are tough to sell

 

Don't let it end

You’ll write your part, if you give yourself the pages

(Don't let it end)

You’ll know your heart, when you see it in their faces 

(Don't let it end)

It's so much easier to put away the pen

But don't you ever let it end

 

Don't let it end

(Know your heart / See it in their faces)

Don't let it end

(Have your day / Don't give it up so easy)

It's the same everywhere

Dreams are tough to sell

But don't you ever let it end
