"Stop and Stare" as written by Ryan Tedder, Tim Myers, Drew Brown, Zack Filkins and Eddie Fisher....
This town is colder now, I think it's sick of us
It's time to make our move, I'm shaking off the rust
I've got my heart set on anywhere but here
I'm staring down myself, counting up the years

Steady hands, just take the wheel
And every glance is hurting me
Time to make one last appeal for the life I lead

Stop and stare
I think I'm moving but I go no where
Yeah, I know that everyone gets scared
But I've become what I can't be, oh

Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you're here not there
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
But fair ain't what you really need
Oh, can you see what I see?

They're trying to come back, all my senses push
Untie the weight bags, I never thought I could
Steady feet, don't fail me now, gonna run till you can't walk
Something pulls my focus out and I'm standing down

Stop and stare
I think I'm moving but I go no where
Yeah, I know that everyone gets scared
But I've become what I can't be, oh

Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you're here not there
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
But fair ain't what you really need
Oh, you don't

Stop and stare
I think I'm moving but I go no where
Yeah, I know that everyone gets scared
But I've become what I can't be
Oh, do you see what I see?
