"Reaction" as written by and Chris Badami Arthur Carl Enders....
Whoa...

So if I ask you to stay,
You'd remind me that your mind's made up
And you had enough of us, of us
And I'd say

So if I ask you to stay
You'll remind me that your mind's made up
And you had enough of us, of us
And I'd say

Oh I'd say, wait

I hold my breath and wait for your reaction
Stand my ground 'cause I'm not ready to back down
I know, but where could I go?
Wait for your reaction, wait for your reaction

Whoa...

So if I say it's okay and I walk out,
Would you let me go, would you follow me to the door?
Or just sit, hoping for more?
I know you wonder if it's worth the wait
Or the time that it takes
Every breath that you lost,
Every night spent awake
Every moment gets closer,
The door's gonna close on you.
So I say, wait...

I hold my breath and wait for your reaction
Stand my ground 'cause I'm not ready to back down
I know, but where could I go?
Wait for your reaction, wait for your reaction

Whoa...

I hold my breath and wait for your reaction
Stand my ground 'cause I'm not ready to back down
I know, but where could I go?
Wait for your reaction, wait for your reaction

    General CommentCan't believe no one's commented on this song. It's incredible. I think the meaning is pretty obvious, but I love the straightforwardness because it makes it so easy to relate to... and it's catchy as hell!

    General CommentI'm so glad the end of The Early Nov didn't mean the end of Ace Enders.

    General CommentI love this song, just like every other song by Ace Enders.

    Its apparently about a relationship that is ending and the girl really wants it to end, but he doesnt really want it too.

    Ace Enders = <3

    My OpinionThe lyrics to this song really fit well with his song when I hit the ground. I love this song. Love the optimism and how dandy the music is.
