lyrics

I spent my formative years swearing
I would never see them wasted
And now realise my worst fears,the irony is
Have I wasted them through being wasted
And all this time to contemplate,all the while lacking more than half the memory of it
All my life to bare such a weight
So safe and secure,but nothings ever as it seems

And thats why right now everything seems fine but I think somewhere down the line
We'll start to see what we could be if we hadnt wasted so much time
You know its not a cry for help,no
Its a cry for someone else
To recognise the good in me that I can't seem to see myself
But Hindsight helps

Reaching out with both hands trying to collect all the things that had missed you
I say that time is all I need but time's all I have left
Its such a tragedy you know that I would willingly give you
All this time that you require but you throw it all away thats why these days when conversation turns your way
You find yourself constantly under fire
Has the way that we've behaved merited us an early grave?

Because right now everything seems fine but I think somewhere down the line
We'll start to see what we could be if we hadnt wasted so much time
You know its not a cry for help,no
Its a cry for someone else
To recognise the good in me that I can't seem to see myself

When its your last stand on your liberty it's still hard enough to speak
Though you're so straight up with honesty that makes it harder still to breathe.

Because right now although everything seems fine but I think somewhere down the line
We'll start to see what we could be if we hadn't wasted so much time
You know its not a cry for help,no
Its a cry for someone else
To recognise the good in me that I can't seem to see myself
But Hindsight helps.
