We’re here for a good time, not for a long time.
I’ve been holding your morals too close to my heart for far too long.
And over time I’ve seen it ruin me.
I had no opinions to call my own ..no life around your thoughts of me.
I tell no lies when I say “I’ve been here before.”
Yeah, I’ve felt my face flat on this floor.
So don’t judge me when I say “I’m not here to ignore.”
It just doesn’t seem like you’re listening anymore.

It’s been a while now, since I’ve been afraid of something this juvenile.
But it’s not my fault.
Everyone tells me that it’s all in my head and I can’t do a thing.
So I’m sitting here playing it over and over.

Now I give up on this. I’ve wasted too much time.
I’ve been holding back, I’ve not said a thing for far too long.
Now it’s gone too far and I won’t play dead this time.

It’s been a while now, since I’ve been afraid of something this juvenile.
But it’s not my fault.
Everyone tells me that it’s all in my head and I can’t do a thing.
So I’m sitting here playing it over and over.
Now I give up on this. I’ve wasted too much time.

I must admit I was thinking out loud.
But I’m glad I was, because you needed to hear it. Every word.
You’ll notice that from now on I’m keeping my wits about you.
And this is the last time you’ll keep me from sleep.
