I got a head full of dreams
And time here to scheme
This ain't good
I'm thinking, you know
About what did and didn't go
Like it should

All of these expectations
Just mean my heart'll be breaking
Why can't I see?

You give me what I need
Even on my brightest day
Even in a hurricane
You give me what I need
Even when there's way too much
Even when I'm down to dust

I troubled with time
But it's will was not mine
There was no slowin', where it was going
The wishes I willed
All came back unfulfilled
I was praying, without patience

All of those expectations
Just meant my heart was breaking
Why can't I see?

You give me what I need
Even on my brightest day
Even in a hurricane
You give me what I need
Even when's there's way too much
Even when I'm down to dust

I keep calm, carry on
Like nothing ever went wrong
That's what I'm gonna do
Laugh it off, move on
Get back where I belong
Live my life by leaning on you

You give me what I need
Even on my brightest day
Even in a hurricane
You give me what I need
Even when it's way too much
Even when I'm down to dust (2x)
