The day is gone it starts to hit you
The situation is out of control
The walls are caving in all around you
You feel like your always left of the center in a loneliness you know so well
You don’t feel like you can deliver but you can’t stay locked up in this shell

So hang on just a little bit longer now
Things can only get better than this so why can’t you just leave it all behind you H
ang on Why should this be any different now
At least that’s what you keep saying to yourself over and over again

Home is long ago and far away
Like a memory your stuck in the middle of what you are and what you were
Until you believe that it’s all just a riddle it doesn’t matter what you’ve heard

So hang on just a little bit longer now
Things can only get better than this so why can’t you just leave it all behind you H
ang on Why should this be any different now
At least that’s what you keep saying to yourself over and over again

And it starts And it starts again
It will And it will leave you in the dark

You might know you’re alive
When you leave this all behind
You won’t know until you try
Hold on now it just takes time

So hang on just a little bit longer now
Things can only get better than this so why can’t you just leave it all behind you H
ang on Why should this be any different now
At least that’s what you keep saying to yourself over and over again

    My InterpretationThe speaker is basically saying to not give up. Everything that could do wrong already went wrong, why give up now? It can only get better now.

    Here is my version of the lyrics. I don't like these weird symbols...

    The day is gone, it starts to hit you.
    The situation is out of control.
    The walls are caving in all around you.
    You feel like you're always left of the center in a loneliness you know so well.
    You don't feel like you can deliver,
    but you can't stay locked up in this shell.


    [CHORUS]
    So hang on just a little bit longer now.
    Things can only get better than this,
    so why can't you just leave it all behind you?
    Hang on.
    Why should this be any different now?
    At least that's what you keep saying to yourself,
    over and over again.

    Home is long ago and far away.
    Like a memory you're stuck in the middle of what you are and what you were.
    Until you believe that it's all just a riddle,
    it doesn't matter what you've heard.


    [CHORUS]
    So hang on just a little bit longer now.
    Things can only get better than this,
    so why can't you just leave it all behind you?
    Hang on.
    Why should this be any different now?
    At least that's what you keep saying to yourself,
    over and over again.

    And it starts.
    And it starts again, it will.
    And it will leave you in the dark.

    You might know you're alive when you leave this all behind.
    You won't know until you try.
    Hold on now, it just takes time.


    [CHORUS]
    So hang on just a little bit longer now.
    Things can only get better than this,
    so why can't you just leave it all behind you?
    Hang on.
    Why should this be any different now?
    At least that's what you keep saying to yourself,
    over and over again.
