Wasting away by a phone that never rings
Someday I'm going to learn to give up on things
Or give up on someday
But for now I will wait
While I rush through the day
Like the machine I've become

I am the anchor just holding you down
I need you to pick me up off the ground
I swear I'd let you go if you just gave the word
In the silence my voice goes unheard

I know I don't have much to offer you now
Except for a ride out of this town
But if it's too cold tonight, stay inside

I'll come stay with you through the long lonely nights
I promise that I'd never leave your side
In a place where the people don't ever find their way
I'm sorry I pulled you away

There's always a way to make things work
It's funny how things turn out in this world
Rest assured that soon it will feel alright
I am no longer the one who will wait
For years to find you speak up too late
I am tired of living that way
