Slip through the door
Like someone you've never seen before
And I teach you the way
To forget all the pain
But I can't let go
Of what's inside

Grasping for sand
Time won't let me stand
Against the wall
Against the wall
So I rise up

They will be gone
Just wait for your turn
Say goodnight
Say goodnight
And this will all be yours
This will all be yours
This will all be yours
This will all be yours

When you tell me your dreams
i know little baby, i see them same thing
just wait it out
just wait a couple more years
and you will have it all

When the room grows small
and your clothes don't fit
Well, they never fit
they never fit at all
So don't you worry
Don't you worry
About a thing
About a thing

They will be gone
Just wait for your turn
Say goodnight
Say goodnight
And this will all be yours
This will all be yours
This will all be yours

    General CommentI'm biased because I'm going through a tough time in high school right now, but I think this is a pep talk to someone who's going...well through a tough time in high school. "Just wait a couple more years and you will have it all," is basically saying tough it out and it'll get better. "Grasping for sand" seems like a desperate want for more time, when you feel it slipping away, like you're going to wake up 20 and realize you spent your teen years moping around. "They will be gone, just wait for your turn, say goodnight say goodnight and this will all be yours." Obviously it's reassuring the person that the people they don't like in school, or the people that are on top of the world, will soon move on. I know what it feels like to be impatient and just wanting to get on with life and be successful, but you have to suffer through the wait and the work to get there. "When the room does fall and your clothes don't fit, well they never fail, they've never had it all so don't you worry." I could be wrong but I hear "fit" not "mend."

    Course like I said...teenage girl here...fitting into clothes is kinda on my mind most of the time I breath...

    General CommentCORRECTIONS TO LYRICS -- (I have the Vinyl and it came with lyrics).

    When you tell me your dreams
    I know little baby
    I see them same thing
    Just wait it out
    Just wait a couple more years
    And you will have it all

    When the room grows small
    And your clothes don't fit
    Well they never fit at all
