We keep on putting these efforts into this
It appears we've chosen to impress those who believe--
Those who believe everything is just alright,
But within we know we're scared to be ourselves

Chorus:

This time, this time,
Can we get it right now?
Finally make it right now
We seem to fight for what we are not
And then pass it through a lie
Tie the leaves on trees so they
Won't come down, so they won't come down
This time, this time,
Can we get it right?


They told us now, it wouldn't be too long
But it's not too much to fight for this song
We told ourselves everything would be okay
But now it just seems so cliche

Chorus:

This time, this time,
Can we get it right now?
Finally make it right now
We seem to fight for what we are not
And then pass it through a lie
Tie the leaves on trees so they
Won't come down, so they won't come down!
This time, this time,
Can we get it right?


The motion's measuring
With every breath
And I'm exhausted
And alone
It's piercing hope
It's piercing hope
So pick me up
'Cuz there's still hope
There's still hope

Chorus:

This time, this time,
Can we get it right now?
Finally make it right now
We seem to fight for what we are not
And then pass it through a lie
Tie the leaves on trees so they
Won't come down, so they won't come down
This time, this time,
Can we get it right?
This time, this time,
Can we get it right?
