lyrics

the weights that slow you down
are self imposed, not tied on
they’re leading you through
the empty doors
what have they done for you?
i’m still learning everyone
was i wrong for you?
how could i learn anymore
if i’m still standing
no brakes to slow you down from these empty roads, you walk on
they’re leaving you
full of empty hope
what have they done for you?
i’m still learning everyone
were they wrong for you?
how could i learn anymore
if i’m still standing
all the world outside
won't wait for you
the wheels are turning
we’ve all promised not
to talk for you
the fields are burning
no way to slow you down
the sun will shine through
the walls you build then
turn you around
all the world outside
won't wait for you
the wheels are turning
we’ve all promised not
to talk for you
the fields are burning
i wanna lay myself beside you
i wanna take your photograph
i wanna lay it down to show you how you laugh
