Will you stand up for me?
So I can see everything
What's making you scream?
Are you breathing?
Is it what you're seeing?

Come on
Don't spend your whole life waiting for your whole life
Thinking that it's over
Are you breathing?

When you gave up on me
Were you happy?
Could you ever be?
Was it making you mean?
It's just a dream
Just a dream

Come on
Don't spend your whole life waiting for your whole life
Thinking that it's over
Are you breathing?

Sometimes I get so lost and I can't fight but
Who to trust and
What's life or a dream?
What's life for a dream?

I ran away to tell the world
And everyday, everyday, everyday
I ran away to tell the world I'm lonely

Come on
Or spend your whole life waiting for your whole life
Thinking that it's over
You spent your whole life waiting for your whole life
Thinking that it's
Come on
Don't spend your whole life waiting for your whole life
Thinking that it's alright
Waiting for your whole life
You can spend your whole life
Waiting for your whole life
Thinking that it's over, over
That it's over, over

    My InterpretationThis song is about being able to move on and get out of a rut. We can't be satisfied to just let life pass us by, hoping that something might happen. We have to make our own way. Sometimes we have to make a drastic change, perhaps "running away" from those that are holding us back from our dreams.

    The theme of hope is very consistent on the whole record, but on this song in particular.

    It's a very motivational song, my favorite Ours song.
