I was told to stop after further inspection
Told to stop, turn, and go in the other direction
Couldn't step forward or I'd break on through
So I took a step back to start life anew

It's been a while since I broke the night
From heading nowhere at the speed of light
To find the smoke of your last cigarette
Went all this way just for the silhouette

It's in my dreams that I'm much too far
Always chasing that northern star
Waiting for the world to make the grade
To do something great before I fade

It's been too long since I tried to shine
Can't help but think that the fault is mine

It's been a while since I tried to shine...
