Great Big Sea – Buying Time lyrics

I stayed awake for hours again last night
Searching for a reason to keep up the fight
I've made choices I don't regret
I've got problems I don't get
I didn't want to carry the heavier load
You can't always take the middle road
There comes a time when you make up your mind
And the point get left behind
Oh lets wait one more day for the conversation
One more day to make it right
Lets get away from the confrontation
One more day just buying time
For years and years you can drift alone
And write another verse to an endless song
Wait one more day till the time is right
Hoping that you both see the light
You won't see the light!
I'm not afraid to sleep alone
I'm not afraid to be alone
Stayed awake for hours again last night
Just searching for a reason to keep up the fight
I've made choices I don't regret
But I've got problems and problems and problems and problems...
