Slow this clock down
And smile out this frown
On my face and please explain
What it was doing here in the first place
I feel like last place
And I'm a million miles from where I want to be
If I could get back to her (I'm kneeling...)
If I could just get back to that feeling
I know someday all of this will be right
After chalking up lost fights
I'm a frequent flyer on "long-goodbyes" airlines
And I'll be on the next flight
Look for me on the lost and defeated skyline
As forecast disappointment arives right on time
Unlike my plane which has crashed and burned
In lessons I have failed to learn
And kept you waiting with empty hands in return

I know it isn't fair
And your smile shows of wear
For the hours, months, and years
I'm calling out for you to hear
If I'm "not worth it"
Then why are you still waiting?
You could go on and no one would care
But you're keeping me alive
It's not for myself, I just don't want
You to have a reason to not smile inside

Throw me something
Just toss me anything
My life needs saving right now
I'll get back to you somehow
I'm a modern-day Odysess
Kept miles away from my promises
Instead of being
Trapped on torrent seas, in raging winds
My destination is wherever you are
So I map my course according to the north star

I know it isn't fair
And your smile shows of wear
For the hours, months, and years
I'm calling out for you to hear
If I'm "not worth it"
Then why are you still waiting?
You could go on and no one would care
But you're keeping me alive
It's not for myself, I just don't want
You to have a reason to not smile inside

I'm sorry I've broken every promise I made you
I'll keep trying everything I can to get back to
