Lying wide awake in the dark
Tryin' to figure out where you are
Always goin' nowhere
Araid of goin' somewhere
Somewhere's a place in your heart

Sometimes when I think about you
Why you're always running away
Sitting in your car
Changing who you are
Drowning the thoughts of your life in the music

Scared the lights will turn green
You'll have to be seen
You'll be like anybody else
Scared the lights will turn red
You're stuck in your head
You can't run it to even her
How you gonna get through the year
You can't...

Playing on both sides of the night
Too many people want too many things
And you only want to forget

Scared the lights will turn green
You'll have to be seen
You'll be like anybody else
Scared the lights will turn red
You're stuck in your head
Too scared to commit to even her
How you gonna make it through

You're always listening
You're always listening
You're always listening to yourself

You're always thinking
You're always thinking
You knew what everybody else should do with their lives

Lying wide awake in the dark
Tryin' to figure out where you are
Always goin' nowhere
Araid of goin' somewhere
And somewhere's a place in your heart
Somewhere's a place in your heart

Scared the lights will turn green
You'll have to be seen
You'll be like anybody else
Scared the lights will turn red
You're stuck in your head
You can't commit to even her

Scared the lights will turn green
You'll have to be seen
You'll be like anybody else
Scared the lights will turn red
You're stuck in your
Too scared to commit to even her
How you going to get through the year?
