  • Once I was alive and I could feel
    I was holding on to you
    And I redefined the way I looked at dawn inside of you

    I went down a crooked highway
    I went all outside the line
    I've been rejected, now the light has turned and I'm out of time

    Ain't no way I'm gonna last
    Hiding in the seams, I keep moving past
    Feel like I'm about to crash
    Riding on my line, keep keeping on, yeah, ooh

    Once we were apart and I could see red
    Never trying to turn back time
    Never meant to bring my pain into the front and into your life

    Now I'm headed down a different road
    Can we walk it side by side?
    Is an old memory just another way of saying goodbye?

    Ain't no way I'm gonna last
    Hiding in the seams, I keep moving past
    Feel like I'm about to crash
    Riding the same line, I keep keeping on, yeah, ooh

    I ain't never going to change
    He never gonna learn
    I keep moving on the path, yeah
    Holding on to mine

    When you talk about the past
    What are we talking of?
    Did I let go too fast?
    Was I holding on too long?

    Ain't no truths from the past
    As silent as the sea
    Am I holding on too long?
    But you're right in front of me

    And I'm moving on a cast
    Shadows on my seam
    I keep moving to changes, yeah, ooh

    Heart or hope
    Heart or hope
    Heart or hope
