Tell me what you need to feel complete.

Freedom leaves no directions to follow
I’m never quite sure what exactly to ask of myself
or what has to happen next.

It’s not that I can’t find the words to explain
what is going on in my mind
no, honestly
It’s that I never seem to have the time
for ever such a long story
& I’m not even sure that it needs to be told.

I forever live in Hope & Fear
That today will be the one that defines me
This picture we’re painting isn’t so clear
and the colours aren’t as bright as I wanted them to be
It doesn’t feel complete.

Lose and find me, only reminds me of the hourglass timing.
Sand always running on through
forcing what has to happen next.

So why am I waiting?
It’s not that I’m afraid of driving this thing
No, honestly
It’s that I barely know where I’m headed
& there’s a chance that we could crash
and I’m not sure that I can handle pressure like that.

I forever live in Hope & Fear
That today will be the one that defines me
This picture we’re painting isn’t so clear
and the colours aren’t as bright as I wanted them to be

I’m petrified of closing my eyes
In case I wake up and the whole world has left me behind
Won’t rest until I find what my tapestry hides
but damn could I do with some sleep.

This next move could change everything
This next move could change everything
Can’t know what the next second brings
(& we could all do with some sleep)
This next move could change everything
This next move could change everything
Can’t know what the next second brings
This next move could change everything

I forever live in Hope & Fear
That today will be the one that defines me
This picture we’re painting isn’t so clear
and the colours aren't as bright as I wanted them

I forever live in Hope & Fear
That today will be the one that defines me
This picture we’re painting isn’t so clear
and the colours aren't as bright as I wanted them to be
