Tick tock the clock is ticking away
Run, run, don't stop you don't wanna stay
I've been hanging around too long here in L.A.
Who's idea was this madness anyway?

I could play along with this masquerade
Hide behind some fancy shades
Get used to wearing a different face
I could compromise for a little while
Maybe learn to break a smile
But can I let this precious time all go to waste?

The older I get the longer I wait
The faster I go the younger the chase
Just when I thought everything would be okay
I'm blindsided by this madness anyway
I could play along with this masquerade
Hide behind some fancy shades
Get used to wearing a different face
I could compromise for a little while
Maybe learn to break a smile
But can I let this precious time all go to waste?

Now that I've seen both sides it's time to
Make up my changing my I've got to
Take off the mask and face the fear
Truth isn't hard to find I've got to

Leave everything behind I'm gonna
Watch all my troubles disappear
Watch all my troubles disappear

Or I could play along with this masquerade
Hide behind some fancy shades
Get used to wearing a different face
I could compromise for a little while
Maybe learn to break a smile
But I can't let this precious time all go to waste

Tick tock the clock is ticking away
Run, run, don't stop you don't wanna stay
