Ask Yourself

Album: Supermodel (2014)
  • Well I've tried to live like the way that you wanted me to
    Never needed the proof, just followed the rules
    I pick up all the pieces and I move my feet as fast as I can
    I'm always falling behind, just float in the lines
    You want more and ambition's taken its toll on you
    Well hey your confidence is fading with your youth

    And you say that dreamers always get what they desire
    Well I've found, the more I want the less I've got
    Is this the life you've been waiting for?
    Or are you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more?

    You're coughing blood again
    I know 'cause I clean up the mess every now and then
    Fold the line along the seam
    Force a smile and never say what you mean
    In the promised land in someone else's dream
    If you want more and you'll get there
    Throw a quarter in the well
    It's okay, you're fine, ambition's not a crime

    And you say that dreamers always get what they desire
    Well I've found, that the more I want the less I've got
    Is this the life you've been waiting for
    Or are you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more?
    Well ask yourself

    Is this the life you've been waiting for, well ask yourself
    Is this the life you've been waiting for, well ask yourself
    Is this the life you've been waiting for,
    You hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more
    Well ask yourself
    Is this the life you've been waiting for,
    You hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more
    Well ask yourself Writer/s: GREG KURSTIN, MARK FOSTER
