I watched the sun set from my seat on the Richmond train
I felt my heart lift and fall back down, before my head dipped beneath the waves
And I felt it again then, like so many times before... I've been at this too long...
Our future's fading away

I spend days on end thinking about people who've got better things to do
And my nights with my head spinning making my old friends brand new
21 is making it damn hard to believe that this could ever be enough for anyone

Well you should know this isn't how I thought I'd spend my habit forming years
I'm so sick of playing the victim, but don't tell me that this is easy
I know exactly what I'm up against

I want to be a vessel, a spark.
I want to take you to where I am, and then take us both apart.
Is it too much to say I need it? oh it's too soon to say I'm moving on
I know I'm risking sounding dramatic, but there's something I want and you have it

Well you should know this isn't how I thought I'd spend my habit forming years
I'm so sick of playing the victim, but don't tell me that this is easy
I know exactly what I'm up against

An ease of breath and lightness of the eyelids
Aren't symptoms I've been experiencing so often
It goes to show that the struggles in adapting to this life
For my head to teach my heart to want things it can have...

Well you should know this isn't how I thought I'd spend my habit forming years
I'm so sick of playing the victim, but don't tell me that this is easy
I know exactly what I'm up against
