life for rent lyrics – dido

i haven’t ever really found a place that i call home
i never stick around quite long enough to make it
i apologize once again i’m not in love
but it’s not as if i mind
that your heart ain’t exactly breaking

it’s just a thought, only a thought

but if my life is for rent and i don’t learn to buy
well i deserve nothing more than i get
cos nothing i have is truly mine

i’ve always thought
that i would love to live by the sea
to travel the world alone
and live more simply
i have no idea what’s happened to that dream
cos there’s really nothing left here to stop me

it’s just a thought, only a thought

but if my life is for rent and i don’t learn to buy
well i deserve nothing more than i get
cos nothing i have is truly mine

if my life is for rent and i don’t learn to buy
well i deserve nothing more than i get
cos nothing i have is truly mine

while my heart is a shield and i won’t let it down
while i am so afraid to fail so i won’t even try
well how can i say i’m alive

if my life is for rent and i don’t learn to buy
well i deserve nothing more than i get
cos nothing i have is truly mine

if my life is for rent and i don’t learn to buy
well i deserve nothing more than i get
cos nothing i have is truly mine
cos nothing i have is truly mine
cos nothing i have is truly mine
cos nothing i have is truly mine
