Before You Were Born (click here for large .wav file)
(Barone)

I was out on the edge, a cat on the ledge
before you were born
Hanging out on the street, an angel in heat
before you were born
Driving off in a car, so fast and so far
before you were born
I was living the lie, forgot how to cry
before you were born

Can you see, can you see why I want you now?
Can you see, can you see why I want you now?

Staying out all night, I had to learn how to fight
before you were born
I got my hands on the wheel, learning to feel
before you were born

So you know, so you know why I need you now
So you know, so you know why I need you now
Can't you see, can't you see why I love you now?
Can't you see, can't you see why I love you now?

I was living in sin, trying not to fit in
before you were born
I was starting to see, it was them against me
before you were born
I didn't act on a dare because I just didn't care
before you were born
I only wish I'd believed someone like me
before you were born

Now I know, now I know why you came my way --
You've got all, you've got all that I've thrown away
Can't you see, can't you see why I want you now?
Can't you see, can't you see why I want you now?
Can't you see ... before you were born.
