Maybe I'm not as smart as I thought
As I come back down.
Entertain the sun,
Beg it to go on.
Don't leave me all alone down here
'Cause I don't have a doubt
That I am without
A way out of this.

And I climb
This wasted time
I've been in, been in,
And I find
I change my mind.
Again you win.

Can you take the ashes that I've burned
At your expense?
'Cause I can't tell you why
All the things that I
Haven't thought to ask you for.
I am at the end,
I cannot pretend
That everything's okay this time.

And I climb
This wasted time
I've been in, been in,
And I find
I change my mind.
Again you win.

I can't walk away from you,
I can't deny what you say is true,
I can't understand everything you do,
Still I can't walk away.

And I climb
This wasted time
I've been in, been in,
And I find
I change my mind.
Again you win.
When I climb...
When I climb...
When I climb...

    General CommentI really love the lines "entertain the sun, beg it to go on", it reminds me of times when I have felt like I was in a really bad [dark] spot in my life. It's a good song about struggle. The lyrics remind me of "Quasimodo".
