Shut your mouth and listen closely
'Cause this silence isn't easy
So I'll break it even harder than before

'Cause I'm sixteen, going on the end of my days
And if words aren't gonna cut it
Then I'll find another way
'Cause I'm leaving what I know behind
And I'm living out my chance to shine
Like the stars now fading from your eyes
And I hope you'll understand

Whoa oh, whoa oh
Please wait till I come home
Whoa oh, whoa oh
Don't turn my heart to stone

Now the runway lights are fading
With the darkness overtaking
And I'll leave you standing, watching all alone
From that plane glass window, one million miles away
And I'm sorry when I'll tell you
That I'm coming back someday

'Cause I'm leaving what I know behind
And I'm living out my chance to shine
Like the stars now fading from your eyes
And I hope you'll understand

Whoa oh, whoa oh
Please wait till I come home
Whoa oh, whoa oh
Don't turn my heart to stone

Whoa oh, whoa oh
Please wait till I come home
Whoa oh, whoa oh
Don't turn my heart to stone
Don't turn my heart to stone

    General Comment:I saw them at Recher too, and hearing this made my night. I miss the old EP a lot. It's great that ATL is getting popular, but I miss the less crowded, less annoying shows.

    General Comment:"Because I'm 16 going on the end of my days" oddly similar to Fall out boys "18 going on extinct". Still awesome non the less.

    General Comment:"Because I'm 16 going on the end of my days" reminds me of the line "eighteen going on extinct"
