The hardest part of listening to my story Is that when I get down to the point It's just simply filled with tragedy And I don't want to seem dishonest So I'm going to come right out and say it Hear me out (hear me out), I know we're done But I think about you all the time I want you back but I know that You've already gone and moved on I want you back but i know that Things will never be the same anymore But why must I wait, It seems that my fate Is holding me back for some reason Oh help me, save me, I'm down on my knees Under these waves, treading water So by the time it gets to nine And I think about you press rewind Yeah I know it's a sickness A self-destructive addiction To dwell on the past can't be healthy And sure it's hard but you're worthy And I'm okay with that cause I'd rather it hard than forget what we've been through I wanted you back but I know that Feelings would only make things harder This road is long and I'm lonely But I know that I'll recover So into this state, I've fallen and fate Is not letting up on the discord It's pulling at me, I know that I'm free But it's just hard to move on, here's to moving on I know I said that I want you But what I meant is I need you To get me through the darkest part of night
The windy streets are cold and it makes it hard to stay out But the trees are tall and they whistle gently Calming me ever so slightly When it gets grey it makes me pack for the last time Yeah this town and I have history But I swear to god I've hit the line Each day grew longer, the wait becoming more than I could bear All I wanted was a place to call my own All I wanted was a place to call my home I can't deal with the rain, I know it's summer But here we've got all four seasons in the same day Just take another drive 'round the bay Looking out into the ocean and haze This is Albany I left a sleeping town hurt bruised and bleeding out I hit the road and I know I'll never turn around Old friends don't talk to me Then again I could never really Be bothered wasting my time Now that I'm older, looking back at everything I had This isn't what I wanted darling It's not what I ordered in my dreams
Here we are again just sitting around Waiting for the world to calm down It's bothered me some cause I've been Looking forward to this for so long But now and then I seem to get caught up in What I've been running away from Like a tale of haunting, it's only daunting Until you turn the lights on Turn around we won't falter this time We left Baltimore back at the lights A whole new world presents itself A whole new world full of life and joy (A whole new world presents itself) But it's up to you to give it half a try This time round we made it out alive No holding back now, no turning back now It's time to say your goodbyes This time round, I think I found I think I found a way to get to you I think I found a way to change my view Sometimes it's hard to see How much you really mean to me And sometimes it's just hard to know What direction I should go
The game is up and I played nice I gave you all that I had due to some bad advice Was it what I needed at the time Or just another pathetic dream of mine But I guess we’ll never know now I always seem to take things way to far Cause I know for sure that last year I was going way better than I am now So don’t hold your tongue for the sake of my comfort The damage is done and you’ve taken me under Now I’m chasing shadows that linger in the back of my head (I can't get you out of my head) If I was never going to stop you then who am I to get in the way I can’t believe that you’d let it all go to waste I tried so hard to let it go but in a world of second chances You’re never getting one from me I won’t, no I won’t back down I know we’re over now But I can’t help feeling like the chump who got lead on somewhat strong Cause when I look at your picture I relive each day, it’s here to stay It’s been a long time coming but I think I’m ready To get on with my life I can’t take one more look at your face It’s too late, it’s time to cut the deadweight
I'm sorry but what's the use of playing these games of hide and seek When there is so much more than we can even see Forgive me but I just think That we should get up off before Before we end up losing ever single thing And this is just the way that I choose to see The world in which I live I'm not suggesting that you Drop all and take the same path But if you start to see through the lies We're fed from our very birth I think I can safely say it's time to rise up And take a stand So what is it that you want to prove to me so desperately Cause honestly nothing that you say can deem the truth unworthy Forgive me but I just think That you are so far out of your depth The deep pulling down I bet you Never prepared for it Why do we always end up Failing to be real Slow down take a breath Spit it out now Just spit it out now
So it seems we've slipped into decay I couldn't tell you cause you said its not okay For me to be honest with you when it's not in line with you say I'm getting tired of the mindless words That you let dribble from your lips It's time you step it up Shut your mouth and let the spirit grow freely I've told you once, I've told you twice But you haven't taken heed to my advice So step on down from your high horse What makes your thoughts better than what I endorse You're so ignorant but then again I know they say ignorance is bliss Materialist you've got a lot to say Without the support of evidence So back it up, back it up I can't take your foolishness and doubt And what have I done, what have I said That makes you so defensive I speak the truth and I do it with love After all it's a calling from above So get on up, pass the torch Cause our time is running out And I've tried my best To get it in your head We've only got one life to live We've only got one chance
All these imitations Fail to satisfy my need for more Like a wildfire out of control I'm using up all the air So get to the point, take me home Just get me out I need to go Broken down I'm weak, I've lost all hope Where were you when I, needed you the most Not only so but we ourselves Not by a choice nor by our will We long for the day, we patiently wait To be liberated from the grave What my eyes fails to see My heart does not grieve for (It does not grieve for) So I'll lock up this desire and let it decay I'm running from yesterday Blinded by the pain of letting you go Where were you when I, needed you the most
Misfortune 03:15
Am I wasting my time again Falling in love to see the end I was in it for the long run But I guess I mustn't be worth it (worth it) Cause time and time again I waste my breath on them (my breath on them) Call it fate, call it whatever you see fit But make no mistake cause this is realistic I'm done with you now cause you left heart in pieces I swear this is the last time I'm taken for granted And its taken some time for me to find you at fault But if I wanted you to bend your words I would've told you upfront, right there and then (there and then) Now all that's left behind in the wake of every single one of my mistakes Is the weight upon my shoulders Bringing me down I can't feel you anymore There's nothing anymore
I've waited some time, and held up my end of the bargain I just can't understand why I never seem to get beyond you And this frame of mind is poison But here I am again at the slightest hope of a second chance But I'm so sick, I've run myself down and I can't get up without you now What's left of me laying on ground And I know it's stupid Cause I know that you'll never hear this I just wish I had the nerve tell you back then But I'm still waiting and I'm still hoping for One more second chance, another push to get myself off the floor So you come on at me, you try and break me down But I've got news for you, the worst is over now You never gave back to me The love that I sowed into you Do you even know how much Pain you've put me through So I won't indulge you It's taken to long to say You left me to be alone I just I'm stuck in yesterday
Hey Mom and hey Dad Just wanted you to know that I never take for granted the words you said to me And I'm always thankful for the loving hands that guided me It's been a long time, a long time coming but I think that I I need to make my time worth something I'm getting tired of running myself to the ground And I can't take it cause it's been so long I know up and moved away But I didn't know that I would change so drastically (so drastically) And I can only hope that it's for the better Even though I'm stuck in this rainy weather I know that I've got you on my side I'm trying to figure out who said change was a good thing But I'm glad you called me out (the harsh truth is off-putting) Cause once again I stand in the wake of my own hands I hope it's not to late to start again (this is the world of a second chance) I tried to do things right but I Lost track of time and I lost sight And tried to make it on my own Little did I know (little did I know) But here I stand once again Clinging to anything that have left But you told me That this is the world of the second chance
The hardest part of listening to my story Is waiting for the world calm down This town and I have got a lot to sort out And I’m getting tired of running myself to the ground And I just wish I had the nerve to tell you back then I know I up and moved away But I didn’t know that I would change I tried to do things right but I lost tracked and I lost sight So don’t hold your tongue, for the sake of my waiting for I know I said that I want you, but I’m so over it So this time round, I think I found The love I was waiting for, it pulled me right up from the ground And once again I stand right back where it all began I hope it's not to late to start again So this time round, I'm letting it all out This time round, you're not going to stop me now So I'll let go, of the long and lonely road That you and I both know, is the one mistake I own
