I am broken. I am beaten
I am so close. To defeated
I am left, and you are right
And everything’s so out of sight
The world is moving with such speed
These intentions can mislead
I used to have it figured out
But I stand now covered in doubt

CHORUS
Give me some time to get this rhyme of life right
Give me some minutes that I can use but won’t abuse
I’m stuck right where I’m standing
And it’s so far from where I want to be
I want to stand somewhere where I don’t think I’ll have to flee
I wish I had some time to cogitate
Why does everyone say that I’m just afraid of fate?

That’s not it at all
I’m just a little but tangled
In my own tangle of a rhyme of life

So get me out, I need some help
I’ve been caught here for too long
Get me out. I need some help
In my time of weakness I’m forced to be strong

Just
CHORUS

They’re so wrong
I’m just a missing piece
Of an all too large jig saw puzzle
I just need some time to get this rhyme of life right

You can break me but you can’t take me
I know where I want to go I’ve just got to leave
But it’s so hard when in a house of cards
The weight is on my shoulders
And it’s so heavy
This burden weighs more then the other’s I’ve seen and had

There goes my pain, and the chains, that kept me down for too long
Watch them leave me, it seems so easy
When looking back

This feeling is without meaning
It’s made me stop my life for way to long
Give me some time to get this rhyme of life right

CHORUS

I don’t believe in fate
I don’t think it’s true
I don’t think I was destine to meet you
I don’t believe in fate
Though not now, I have control of my life
And I just need some time to get this rhyme of life right

    General CommentThey aren't seeing eye to eye and he needs time to think it through...decides he has to leave the relationship because it's just not right. Sorta? I dunno there's more detail in there but I'm too tired. Good lyrics though....cogitate....ha....that was odd to see because it's a "big word" and people don't use it in lyrics. But it's different....and I like different

    General Commenthum, yes! i don't really like these lyrics, the only part i like is the first verse "i am broken, i am beaten... blahblah." no one else can diss these lyrics except for me, though!
