I signed the papers For a lifelong lease I rent the earth where I stand And the air I breathe Then you forget that Deal you made with God While busy finding yourself being young, being dumb and in love It’s all too easy And you’re easily bored Never once has it crossed your mind That life’s too short And there’s a third person walking behind us A tap on the back and it’s there to remind us Life is a blink of an eye ’til you are no more So, I stand back and I watch us fall As we break everything inside these hotel walls Life’s for rent and it called us out So, I hand back the key as the door man bows They greet you welcome With roses and champagne And when you walk through the lobby They all know your name But all beautiful things Come with edges and thorns And the body you borrowed is starting to look kind of worn So, I stand back and I watch us fall As we break everything inside these hotel walls Life’s for rent and it called us out So, I hand back the key as the door man bows We’re just grains in the universe I let that comfort me when I’m anxious This life is beautifully ugly at times We’re just grains in the universe I let that comfort me when I’m anxious This life is beautifully ugly at times It’s beautifully ugly at times It’s beautifully ugly at times It’s beautifully ugly at times It’s beautifully ugly at times So, I stand back and I watch us fall As we break everything inside these hotel walls Life’s for rent and it called us out So, I hand back the key as the door man bows
