"Where I Want To Be" as written by and Cody Michael/czap Payne....
In the back of my mind, well I thought my god
'Cause all of the hell that's in my time
But I can still see the birds
And where they went this year

Our winter made things hazy and I know
That I was losing sight of my hometown
And in my blacking out I think I let you down
Don't let them try to save me
'Cause I'm already crazy

And there is something in your face
That pulls me far enough away
I guess that I always knew
That I'd find you when I thought

That I'd be letting out my darkest now
And in my climbing out I think I let you live
I wish you'd try to save me
Your silence makes me crazy

It takes a lot to say that something is fate
I kind of know where you're headed
Am I too up front or am I just on time
Well where is your head at?

And there is something in your face
That pulls me far enough away
I guess that I always knew
That I'd find you when I thought

I reached my point, I let them down
I slept in the worst part of this town
You are my song
And you are where I want to be

I want to take those steps I never have
I need to stand up straight
So I can feel your breath
I really think for once that I can change
It's really not that bad

I'm learning now that I was wrong in everything
And that's the reason why I think that I can grow
It's really not that bad

It's in the way you had
It's in the way you had
Me all wrapped up like
I'm a part of something finally
and I'm never looking back

And there is something in your face
That pulls me far enough away
I guess that I always knew
That I'd find you when I thought

I reached my point, I let them down
I slept in the worst part of this town
You are my song
And you are where I want to be

I reached my point, I let them down
I slept in the worst part of this town
You are my song
And you are where I want to be

    General CommentThank you for posting this! Some of these lines were killing me trying to figure out.

    It's just the second part of the chorus that's missing:

    "I'd reached my point, I let them down. I slept in the worst part of this town. You are my song, and you are where I want to be."

    General Comment the title speaks for itself, this is a song that keeps on giving. The singer is saying that he's done, over it, he knows now exactly where he WANTS to be. Perhaps in the past, distractions lead [him] off course but now, now he knows what's real and true.

    And there is something in your face
    That pulls me far enough away
    I guess that I always knew
    That I'd find you when I thought

    - There's that something about a person when you just KNOW. However, more likely than not, weary away from this intense reality in that it can be scary and all too definitive for us if we are not aware or ready. But deep down, you know there will come a day when you will find them (again, if you're ever so lucky to have the chance), exactly when you THOUGHT you would (or, "should").

    I reached my point, I let them down
    I slept in the worst of part of this town
    You are my song
    And you are where I want to be

    - Typically, it's when you've hit rock bottom that you KNOW: what, who & WHERE you want to be.

    I really think for once that I can change
    It's really not that bad
    I'm learning now that I was wrong at everything
    And that's the reason why I think that I can grow

    - This is a sign of maturity and growing up. When you realize "hey, this getting older this isn't as bad as I thought it would be." With age comes wisdom - and strength. Much strength. Now that you should be proud of.
