Wait for Me

I forgot what it felt like
to feel so alive
I'm packing my suitcase
and changing my mind
I forgot what it's like to look
the things you want
right between the eyes
It's never been so hard to say goodbye

I'm back to the basics
and waiting for signs
I'm praying for patience
and falling behind
It's not the way I meant to be
it’s just how I'm designed
I get so tired of running out of time

I'm missing out on all the places I could go
The people I could know,
the nights so not alone
We'll never make it
and it wasn't meant to be
But I’ll wait if you'll wait for me

I'm trying to remember
your face in my hands
I wanted adventure,
you met my demands
I told myself the day I left
I want it but I can't
I fell for something far away again

I guess that it's pointless,
but I mean what I say
I never expected
through all of this time
that I could be okay
Yeah, all the things you do to me,
the promise and the pain
I wish with all my heart that I could stay

I'm missing out on all the places I could go
The people I could know,
the nights so not alone
We'll never make it
and it wasn't meant to be
But I’ll wait if you'll wait for me

I forgot what it felt like
to feel so alive
I'm packing my suitcase
and changing my mind
I forgot what it's like to look the things you want
right between the eyes
And say goodbye
goodbye
goodbye
goodbye

I'm missing out on all the places I could go
The people I could know,
the nights so not alone
We'll never make it
and it wasn't meant to be
But I’ll wait if you'll wait for me
I’ll wait if you'll wait for me
