A Million

lyrics

Tick tick tick, another minute
Wasting precious, precious time
Pull the cord and now I'm spinning
Set the cast and read the lines

Living apart, we've done this dance before
I feel inept, makes me only want it more
Well-treaded paths will only wash away
I was given so many chances, begged for answers
Was it me? You wouldn't say

I wish that I could be a better man than what I am
Enough with silver linings, won't pretend to give a damn
Come on, die young with me so we won't learn
To grow old gracefully and burn
Our eyes out staring at the sun
A million songs we should've sung

I can't stand it any longer
Who's got leaving on the mind?
Linger 'til the room is empty
Breathe in whiskey and orange rinds

The longer I wait, the sooner you will leave
We blink, we miss our reasons to believe
Sad punk, punch-drunk, fail to rest
The world is ours, born to be stars
Come on, we all can't be so blessed today

I'll be awake for hours now
So easy to forget somehow
The empty page and written word
Tethered by the ankles, dancing all alone with the absurd

A million lines, a million faces, a million lapses in good graces
A million ways, a million fights, a million dollars rolled in dimes
If I could live a million years, a million miles away from here
I would, I could, I should allow it to soak in, we'll stand and take a bow

Nothing matters now
