Woke up from another dream
With the clouds in my head
Sat down by the window watched the sunrise burning red

I guess I'm doing alright now
But there's too much time to kill
I can't forget you lying there so still

Picture back to another time
I see you sitting here
You said would you ever forgive me if I chose to disappear
I turned away and closed my eyes
I didn't think I could

If that's what you want I guess I would
If that's what you want I guess I would

You know I can't live like everyone else
Nothing ever seems that simple in my head
Feel myself slipping away
Don't want to wind up helpless in my bed

This time I want to get out and walk but I think I'll fall

I can see myself in so many ways
But I curse myself instead
Was there something I should have done
Something else I could have said
You know I tried to change it but I can't forgive you still

If that's what you want I guess I will
If that's what you want I guess I will

You know I can't live like everyone else
Nothing ever comes that simple in my head
Feel myself slipping away
Tired of waking up lonely in my bed

This time I want to get out and walk but I think I'll fall
This time I want to get out but I think I'll fall
