New Deal

by The Pulse

about

A song written in under 10 minutes; when you're so frustrated after a particular conversation that you're able to blow out everything in the form of a song. The seemingly happy ending to The Pluse's upcoming Album, "Break 3"

lyrics

Why are you leaving
when you've told me you love me again
Why are you leaving
and saying that we can be friends
why are you leaving
when you cry that you don't want to go
why are you leaving
just because your parents say so?

Oh, oh
Parents say, so
oh, oh

Why are you crying
when you could be changing your mind
why are you crying
when you know you control your own life
why are you crying
when you have the power to stop it
why are you crying
when you're leaving me here alone with nothing

it's hard not to play the game of blame
when everything is so hard to say
so try to understand, it's not that I'm mad
you've just broken both our hearts today

you've gotta love what you love
and leave what you don't
'cause you can't take it with you at the end of the road
be what you are
and say what you feel
'cause at the bottom of your heart,
boy you know what you want
it's the new deal

yeah
it's the new deal

why are you angry
when I'm saying that I want you to stay
why are you angry
when you stay that you feel the same way
why are you angry
when I jump to a conclusion again
why are you angry
when you change what you mean every second

it's hard not to play the game of blame
when everything is so hard to say
so try to understand, it's not that I'm mad
you've just broken both our hearts today

you've gotta love what you love
and leave what you don't
'cause you can't take it with you at the end of the road
be what you are
and say what you feel
'cause at the bottom of your heart,
boy you know what you want
it's the new deal

yeah
it's the new deal

I know you have reasons, I know that you do
but no reason's a reason to live without you
I know you're confused, it'll take you some time
but you are the best part of my goddamn life
I know i'm not perfect, but neither are you
it's one of the reasons we're no good as two
separate units, it's hard to deny
since you keep saying that I'm the best thing in your life


love what you love
and leave what you don't
'cause you can't take it with you at the end of the road
be what you are
and say what you feel
'cause at the bottom of your heart,
boy you know what you want
it's the real deal

yeah
its the real deal
yeah
it's the real deal
yeah
I'm the new deal
yeah
we're the new deal
