So take a step back and feel the air in my breath.
I've waited so long to take up all of your time.
And all the hell you put me through?
I think that I deserve this.
So I'm gone.
So long to all the shit in my head
That's kept me down for one more day.
I've got to find another way to get out of this town.
I think I've found the words to say I'm breaking down.
I pray to God you found a way.
Just stay awake tonight.
Two hundred miles and highway signs
Can't keep my heart inside.
You're the closest thing to home.
And I know that I've been so uptight.
I missed the point, came up too shy.
I just need a change of scene
Turn my darkest blues to greens and I'm gone.
And she says the sun shines brighter down south
And we all know that I could use the breeze.
But just this once, all the sand and the palm trees
Can't replace you in my head.
I'm covered up in red for you to see.
I think I've taken time to grow, and I'll sing
"I pray to God, I hope you know..."
And you should take all the time that you need
If you're gonna break away from me.
And for your sake, take all the time that you need.
Don't ever pin your heart on someone else's sleeve.
Take all you want from me and make me believe
All those damn excuses you've been leading me on with.
I fell for them once and I'm not gonna fall again.
