Hold tight, breath easy.
We're starving ourselves with anxiety.

Constantly we are trying to run
Let's slow down and try walking sometime.

Looking back at my change of direction
I now can say that I have learned that she's not important
And I was foolish to care so much.

Why do we try so hard
When satisfaction is so close

These days it's hard enough to please myself.
You'll just have to wait in line,
Sit down and take a number.
We're all looking for our answers.
And I'm still learning how to breath again.
Turn around, take two steps back.
There must be bigger worries.
Life is full of questions.
We can answer them if we take the time.

Sometimes thing don't work out
Sit back and try to believe.
Focus, don't procrastinate
Don't side track yourself like I did

Let me be your reminder
Let me make the mistake for you.
And I've learned she wasn't worth it.
And I've learned patience is a virtue.

    General Commentnow that i'm actually looking at the lyrics, i see that they're pretty stupid. aw, he learned not to waste him time over some dumb girl. this song is actually really really good though, music-wise. excellent guitar work. so i think i'd sing along anyway.
