Straylight Run – For The Best lyrics

And it takes more time than I've ever had,
Drains the life from me, makes me want to forget.
As young as I was, I felt older back then,
More disciplined, stronger and certain.
But I was scared to death of eternity,
I was saved by grace and destroyed by naivety.
And I lied to myself and said it was for the best.

And now faith is replaced with a logic so cold,
I've disregarded what I was now that I'm older.
And I know much more than I did back then,
But the more I learn the more I can't understand.
And I've become content with this life that I lead
Where I drink too much and don't believe in much of anything
And I lie to myself, and say it's for the best

We're moving forward but holding ourselves back, and we're waiting on something that'll never come...
We're moving forward but holding ourselves back, and we're waiting on something that'll never come

We're moving forward but holding ourselves back, and we're waiting on something that'll never come (and I lie to myself)
We're moving forward but holding ourselves back, and we're waiting on something that'll never come(and say it's for the best)
We're moving forward but holding ourselves back, and we're waiting on something that'll never come (and I lie to myself)
We're moving forward but holding ourselves back, and we're waiting on something that'll never come (and say it's for the best)
