lyrics

I've been asleep for years
Or at least that's how it feels
The night's been never ending
My reality's been bending
Pretending never felt so real
But I never found words to make it clear
That I won't skip town while you're still around
Because there's too many things that you need to hear
And I've wanted to tell you how these years have been
So where do I begin?

These times I tried to look from eye to eye
Changed to blazing brand new trails side by side
And I won't lie
I've never blown my cover
Never told another
Never shown my true colors before
Now the difference is that I've been influenced
And told the testament from hardcore regiments
Of teachers, of preachers, of no names and presidents
But none of that's as evident as everything I've learned from you

How can I sleep at night?
How can I stand upright?
How can I walk or talk or feel alright?
If I wasn't in the wrong place at the right time?

I know I've always been the next best thing
But these circumstances held out branches
That bridged our inconsistencies
Don't say I'm wrong
Yeah it won't be long
'Til tonight gets lost to the break of dawn
Put out the sun 'cause I'm not pressing on
So won't you come along?

We never asked for this unrest
But you can count on me to protest
The demolition of this fortress we built ourselves
No one can tell us when to say fair well
And I've always heard that home is where the heart is
So I guess I'm moving in

So take this moment to dry your eyes
When the smoke clears
We'll live our lives together
And throw away those old goodbyes
We don't need bankrupt minds to tell us what's unwise

I know I've always been the next best thing
But these circumstances held out branches
That bridged our inconsistencies
Don't say I'm wrong
Yeah it won't be long
'Til tonight gets lost to the break of dawn
Put out the sun 'cause I'm not pressing on

And we won't meet again
'Cause you can't meet what didn't leave
And please don't wait and hold your breath
'Cause you can't miss what hasn't left
