Tired 03:48
I’m so tired, of writing the same songs About the same kind of boys, and the same wrongs Cause I always fall harder than expected For the guy I know is not worth the time I can’t wait for you to say, you didn’t mean to I can’t wait for you to say I’m sorry, I just didn’t think of you that way, And I’m so tired, of being outside Of the spotlight of your eyes. I can’t wait for you to tell me that you’re trouble And I can’t wait for you to blame that I’d been warned All I ask is that you be kind to me, All I ask, is that it’s not just take without give I’m treading carefully, cause I’m terrified enough already That without you I might lose my will to live I’m so tired of being in the background I feel I’m getting lost, behind these sounds I can’t wait, for you to tell me just how busy you are Oh I can’t wait, for you to say your life’s insane. I’m falling harder, than expected For a guy that I know is not worth my time I can’t wait, for the lines to come Before they do, I’ll assure all of my friends that he’s different from the other ones.
Well it might be wrong But he’s everything I need They say he’s no good But that’s not who I see I’ve known him forever, I don’t know him at all He’s done nothing but good for me Every time I fall He picks me up, Sets me gently back down And I’ve done next to nothing To keep him coming around Reality sets in As we leave our hometown Timing works against us And all that we have found I’ll miss you everyday, ‘Til I find a way To accept what we are now But until then, I guess I’ll see you around Have one more discussion To give this one more chance I have no convictions No need to second-guess If this should be less Than it is more Cause I wish nothing but for him To be on my porch, Knocking at my door I’d let him on in Wrap his arms around me tight I won’t try to pretend Not to have wanted this tonight
Oh what a way To start the New Year I should’ve stayed, As long as I could here Cause I still feel your arms Wrapped around me I still feel your lips on mine In a smile I don’t know why He doesn’t care anymore It’s hard to describe What he’s done to my heart I look to his eyes They don’t meet mine anymore And I don’t understand What it was I was trying for What it was I was trying for It’s hard to make sense Of all these goodbyes Hard not to believe This is all there is to life In the dead of winter Still feel the heat Of my hand wrapped up in yours Walking those familiar streets
Should’ve by now, Figured this out I should know who I am, Apart from you But all of my friends, Are so far away And I’ve reached the end, Of my contrived display That I’m doing ok with this But I sincerely hope that you are doing alright Life has been harder without you by side And I don’t mean to point any fingers, Cause there’s no blame at all to be had Just wanted to say that I miss you. And our old friends. Been seeing this guy, Not sure yet if he’s right for me On days like these I could use your strong advice. Finally quit that job for such little pay, Life’s just too short to waste on jobs you hate These are the things that I used to call you To tell you about, at the end of my day. And I guess I still could, I just don’t know that I Would know what to say But I sincerely hope that you are doing alright Life has been harder without you by side I sincerely hope that you are doing alright Life has been harder without you by side I miss seeing our cars, Span the whole length of The street where we’d park Outside your parents’ house, To do nothing at all, For no reason beyond, Being with you, Being with you and our old friends.
