Vera, you are not the one who let the whole world down, you were
waiting on the sidewalk when they pulled the car around, and now
+++++ no one’s keeping score, Vera, no,
+++++ no one’s keeping score anymore..

you say you’ve got a lot to lose, and so you skip the scene, but
offers we cannot refuse, they’re few and far between, this
+++++ could be so much more, Vera, now
+++++ no one’s keeping score anymore..
+++ used to be a time, you were free to shine, you were so alive that night,
+++ back before the grind, you were no one’s prize, I can see you burning bright,
+++ but they were not your friends, they had other ends,
+++++ still you made it out alive, Vera, Vera..

girl I know the distant crowd that used to box you in, and I
know you hear them calling out, time and time again,
but Vera, they can’t touch you now, that was way back when, and
+++++ no one’s keeping score, Vera, no,
+++++ no one’s keeping score anymore,
+++++ no one’s keeping score, Vera, no,
+++++ no one’s keeping score anymore..
anymore, Vera.. anymore, Vera.. anymore, Vera…
