Til You

  • I’ve been wasting time
    Clawing my way to you
    Taking no prisoners with my romantic crimes
    I’ve been holding on imaging him says a new
    Holding my breath while you clean down the pike

    Spinning my wheels round
    I’m here, dodging bullets 'til you
    Ear to the ground
    I’m here, dodging bullets 'til you

    I’ve been taking notes
    Nursing the thought of you
    Research and deliver 'cause I’m hiding my time
    I’ve been holding on this magnet that calls to you
    Entertaining myself with these consolation prizes

    Spinning my wheels round
    I’m here, dodging bullets 'til you
    Ear to the ground
    I’m here, dodging bullets 'til you

    They’ve become too fond
    But mere peace holders to you
    They feel the stance card
    As you form in my mind

    Spinning my wheels around
    I’m here, dodging bullets 'til you
    Ear to the ground
    I’m here, dodging bullets 'til you

    'Til you
