  • Maybe we, why don't we
    Sit right here for half an hour?
    We'll speak of what a waste I am
    And how we missed your beat again

    I swear we need to find some comfort
    In this run down place
    To bridge the gap of this conscious state
    That we live in
    I'm short on time

    How come you try?
    That brings us home
    To fit the shape of
    And I pray for
    What they tell you
    You to move on, move on (but mostly what they show you)

    At this rate we can't keep up but I sure
    I'm taking back all the things I said
    I'm taking back all the things I said
    But I sure can't just sit still
    Keep me filled in, I swear I'll come

    We walk alone
    We walk alone
    We walk alone
    We walk alone
    We walk alone
    We walk alone
    Back home
    Alone back home

    You're almost gone and I'm okay
    I still see your shadow
    To give you time to be afraid
    But never your face again
    I remember your presence

    I hope to God you come down
    I hope to God you feel this now
    I hope to God you come down
    I hope to
    God

    I know there must be some way out of here
    And all of them will be waiting there Writer/s: Aaron Gillespie, Christopher Dudley, Grant Brandell, James Smith, Timothy Mctague, William Spencer Chamberlain
