Hopelessness Has Done Nothing For Me lyrics

You like the warmth of the summer nights
but you can't escape the cold of the winter rain
and I try to keep the light burning bright
but I can't turn away from the pleasure of my pain

How can you be sorry when you don't even know what you did?
You can take your stories to hell, I've got nothing left to give
and I know it's happening again
You opened up your heart, and let somebody in
Now you've got a stranger in your home
You could kick him out, but then you'd be alone

Turn back the clock to the time we've lost
Make a different ?? and watch the whole picture change
Lean out, to hear is to have a voice, we could have it all
If we'd just get out of the way

How can you move forward when you don't even know where you've been?
Hopelessness has done nothing for me, I want this thing to leave
Well, here we are, it's happening again
You opened up your heart, and let somebody in
Now you've got a stranger in your home
Might as well sit down and try to get to know him.
