I really thought that I was here
And in that breath
My lungs expand, my heart beats through my chest
I see my world from a daze
Learn to live with it, long enough to take it day by day

And all I know,
Is that I'm ready here,
Yeah, I'm waiting for you to take me from this place
And make it all okay
Because you're you

Now getting up, I hope we're here
A seat has bruised my back,
My neck is sore, my eyes can't focus
Yet my wheel is turning to the field
That's how it feels
Knowing everything we've done
Has just been fun while working out

And all I know
Is that I'm ready here
Yeah, I'm waiting for you to take me from this place
And make it all okay
Because I'm ready here
Yeah, I'm waiting for you to take me from this place
And make it all okay
Because you're you.

Come on and get it all
Come on and get it all
Come on and get it all
Come on and get it all

I'm ready here,
Yeah, I'm waiting for you to take me from this place,
And make it all okay,
Because I'm ready here,
Yeah I'm waiting for you to take me from this place,
And make it all okay
Because you're you.

    General Commentfirst off, this song is incredible. it seems that he's talking about just existing in life and it seems to be a rough time for him. and now he's just waiting for someone to pick him up because he knows this person can fix everything that's gone wrong. and for the record, i am so happy ace is still making music after the early november's breakup. so far there is nothing that he has made that i haven't liked.

    My InterpretationThis song is so beautiful. Here's my take on it:

    I really thought that I was here
    And in that breath
    My lungs expand, my heart beats through my chest
    -He thought that everything was fine, and suddenly he realizes that it was fake, or not what he wanted.
    I see my world from a daze
    Learn to live with it, long enough to take it day by day
    -He feels removed from his life now. Accepts it, and gets through, but he isn't happy with it.

    And all I know,
    Is that I'm ready here,
    Yeah, I'm waiting for you to take me from this place
    And make it all okay
    Because you're you
    -He's ready for things to change and life to improve, but he isn't able or willing to make the change himself. He needs a nudge, and he's waiting for "you", whether that's someone he's in love with or just a close friend, to help him take that step.

    Now getting up, I hope we're here
    A seat has bruised my back,
    My neck is sore, my eyes can't focus
    Yet my wheel is turning to the field
    That's how it feels
    Knowing everything we've done
    Has just been fun while working out
    -He's starting to really live his life again and it's harder than he thought, but hopefully all will turn out well. Not really sure about this part.

    Come on and get it all
    -Basically take your life in your own hands and make the most of it.
