I’m not thinking clearly
And I’m feeling lost
I need some time to settle
And dust myself off

I need to collect myself
A place that I can run to
Somewhere I can find my pride
That’s what I see in you

*chorus*
But if I follow you
I can never take that back
If I follow through
No, I shouldn’t just react
I’m angry
And lonely
And my world’s fallen apart
But if I swallow
And follow
I can’t ever restart
[1,2] But if I don’t go with you
I won’t know what to do

I feel like I’ll regret this
And add it to the list
Of things I never should have said
Or wish I never did

I know better
Than to act when I’m upset
That’s what he always told me
And look what I get

*chorus*

Bridge:
But thinking now I realize
I can’t really take back
Anything I’ve done or said
And that’s always been a fact
I’ve always played it safe
So I could live and stand up tall
But now I start to wonder
Have I ever lived at all?

*chorus*
[3] And I really hope you see
I need to stay behind, for me
