[Verse:]
I’ve been battered, I’ve been bruised
And though I know it’s no excuse
For you I know I’m right
And in another place, in another time
I’ll buy you flowers, I’d build a home
Right now can’t pay the bills, I cannot go
Can’t give you anything you need

[Pre-Chorus:]
But maybe if you’ll meet me further down the line
‘Cause you’re the right person at the wrong time

[Chorus:]
I wanna run into the light
And leave the dark behind
I wanna break the chains of life
With you right by my side
So oh
You gotta meet me down the line
So oh
You gotta meet me down the line

[Verse:]
I’m easily dazed, I’m so confused
It’s hurting me and I’m hurting you
Despite everything you do

[Pre-Chorus:]
You’re gonna have to meet me further down the line
‘Cause you’re the right person at the wrong time

[Chorus:]
I wanna run into the light
And leave the dark behind
I wanna break the chains of life
With you right by my side
So oh
You gotta meet me down the line
So oh
You gotta meet me down the line

[Bridge:]
You’ve been trying hard
To make me feel a little better
It’s gonna take a while
To make me feel a little better
And I’ll try, try, try, try a little harder uh yea
And I swear, swear, swear I’m gonna lift you further

[Chorus:]
I wanna run into the light
And leave the dark behind
I wanna break the chains of life
With you right by my side
So oh
You gotta meet me down the line
So oh
You gotta meet me down the line

So oh
You gotta meet me down the line

I’m easily dazed, I’m so confused
It’s hurting me and I’m hurting you
