lyrics

Something tells me that I should be a little farther in my life,
it's like they're never fully satisfied unless I'm making all their choices just so I survive.
I can't help that I want more. It's never too late, so I'm not waiting for the right time
(it's like you're casting your last line) I'm not making the safe bet this time.

I can't tell where I went wrong.
the choices you made have you too far gone
the tick of the clock is about to go off like a time bomb
It's getting ready to blow.
I can't tell where I went wrong
You've been running in circles for way too long
I need a minute to clear my head, but in a matter of seconds we're already dead.

they say what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger.
I say that I'm losing ground and that the distance is only getting longer.
Why can't I believe there's something better waiting for me?
You tend to forget that it's the little things that can hold the biggest meaning.

I get carried away with the small things.

I can't tell where I went wrong.
the choices you made have you too far gone
the tick of the clock is about to go off like a time bomb
It's getting ready to blow.
I can't tell where I went wrong
You've been running in circles for way too long
I need a minute to clear my head, but in a matter of seconds we're already dead.

I think that I lost my way a long time ago. It's 4am there's no one there on the other end of my phone.
Just an empty home, just a dial tone. You'll go, and I'll know that I can't stop from sinking.

bale, the waters getting cold, and I'm getting too old for this, the captain of my sinking ship,
well pray until there's nothing left to say. (My words have always gotten in the way)
from finding what I'm looking for, the happiness I crave.

I can't tell where I went wrong.
the choices you made have you too far gone
the tick of the clock is about to go off like a time bomb
It's getting ready to blow.
I can't tell where I went wrong
You've been running in circles for way too long
I need a minute to clear my head, but in a matter of seconds we're already dead.
