  • In a few weeks I will get time
    To realize it's right before my eyes
    And I can take it if it's what I want to do

    I am leaving This is starting to feel like
    It's right before my eyes
    And I can taste it
    It's my sweet beginning

    And I can tell just what you want
    You don't want to be alone
    You don't want to be alone
    And I can't say it's what you know
    But you've known it the whole time
    Yeah, you've known it the whole time

    Maybe next year I'll have no time
    To think about the questions to address
    Am I the one to try to stop the fire?

    I wouldn't test you I'm not the best you could have attained
    Why try anything?
    I will get there
    Just remember I know

    And I can tell just what you want
    You don't want to be alone
    You don't want to be alone
    And I can't say it's what you know
    But you've known it the whole time
    Yeah, you've known it the whole time

    And I can tell just what you want
    You don't want to be alone
    You don't want to be alone
    And I can't say it's what you know
    But you've known it the whole time
    Yeah, you've known it the whole time Writer/s: Alexander James Trimble, Kevin Stephen Baird, Samuel Matthew Halliday
