Nothing like you wish you were
Your name is the only thing you're really sure of
Sitting on the wrong side of 25
You keep your problems buried oh so deep
Then wonder why you wake up crying
At least the pain means you're alive

Cause it's been months and you've had time
To face what you've been running from, running from
Yeah it's been months and you can't find
A reason why you're holding on, holding on

Before you went away you said you thought
You'd try your hand at being a writer
After all could it really be
Worse than waking up on Tuesday mornings
to sign away your pride for money?
At least you'd have your dignity
Yet all the while your mind is drifting back
To all those nights when you were happy
Or at least when you thought you were
But nothing here can take away the years
you wasted thinking you weren't lonely
Or alone if you prefer

Cause it's been months and you've had time
To face what you've been running from, running from
Yeah it's been months and you can't find
A reason why you're holding on, holding on

If all you wanted was somebody to hear you out
To chase away the empty nights of fear and doubt
Running away won't answer any of your prayers
But you're praying
When you're praying, who are you praying to?
Is it the God you stopped believing in when he abandoned you?

Cause it's been months and you've had time
To face what you've been running from, running from
Yeah it's been months and you can't find
A reason why you're holding on

But you're praying, yeah you're praying
But you're praying, yeah you're praying
But you're praying, yeah you're praying
But you're praying, yeah you're praying
But you're praying
