lyrics

These warehouse walls couldn’t hold me
This feeling in my gut’s gone stale
Of trying to find those just-right words
Before my skin turns pale

I speak to myself far more
Than I raise my voice
And under scotch and stars
I made my choice

I still wake up reminded
Of places you never were
Trapped in a state of waiting
Because I’ll wait for her
And I know clocks run faster
Without resistant thought
Wherever you lay your head

I’ll wait for you
Against all better judgment
Against all I thought I knew
I’ll wait for you
To see this through

I’ll speak this time
Exchange ideas instead of sound
And hold every inch of ground

I’ll see this time
Consume your eyes with mine
And keep myself in line

I want to scream
Love across the river
But know it would never carry
I’m sorry. I’m sorry.
