lyrics

I’ve been sitting in the same spot for much too long.
Now it’s time for me to make you see
Some place that we can call our own.
Am I just dreaming again?
Caught up in a place where I feel safe,
Regardless of other options.

Is this just a game to you?
‘Cause I’m not one to play.
If in the end we both lose.
If we both lose.

It’s all been said and done
A thousand times before.
And yet, there’s still always something left to say.
We’re moving forward
To take this back.

I’m just sick and tired of giving a little
Just to get even less.
(Is that more than you expected?)
I’m giving up on getting my chance
with the only things that mattered.

So please, make up your mind.
I don’t know what I have to do
To show you we have nothing left to lose.

We’ve been through this over and over again.
I’m losing faith in us as “us”.
I want something different.
To take this back.

I’ve been sitting in the same spot for much too long.
Now it’s time for me to make you see
That I’m not waiting here for anyone.
(Not anymore)
Not anymore. (Not anymore.)
