Pull that sad look off your face
You would not last one day
Your weak reality
Starts now

These journeys always sneak up on me
And things forced to leave in plans we hope succeed
And I'm like a flea without a family
Clinging to those who'll have me

Waiting for
You I'll know

Wipe that sad look off your face
Leave nothing left to say
Your weak reality
Starts now

And in an attempt to become
The adult I wish to be
I still remain
An invention that failed

Waiting for
You is slow

Why can't we stay the same for now?
These times are trying and I can't last
Stay the same
Won't you stay the same for now?

Tasteless, take this some more
That's all I ask
These are the times of our lives
We won't live fast

Why can't we stay the same for now?
These times are trying and I can't last
Stay the same
Won't you stay the same for now?

    General CommentTo me, this is about a relationship in which one person is advancing while the other is lagging behind and comfortable in their irresponsibility and lack of growth. Why can't we stay the same for now? At an even playing field? So we are able to enjoy and not feel that one is a liability?

    By the way, Gary sounds amazing.
