Tanner Patrick – Drifting Away lyrics

My words fell short in the middle of the spotlight
My arms unfold and nobody's gonna get my eyes off you
Promise me you'll lead me away
From the past and the broken
I can't explain all the things that I was thinking
My eye's on you
Promise me you'll lead me away

I've been waiting for you
And if I slow my breathing
I'll build a spine and make a move
I've been drifting away
Away from these average thoughts
And into every word you say

I've been drifting away
Oh I've been slipping away
I've been drifting away
And I've been slipping
Into every word you say

The love I sought would have never been in this light
A parking lot down south close to midnight
Come back soon
I promise you I'll lead you away
From the past and the broken
I've been burned so I know what you were thinking
Come back soon
I promise you I'll lead you away

I've been waiting for you
And if I slow my breathing
I'll build a spine and make a move
I've been drifting away
Away from these average thoughts
And into every word you say

I've been drifting away
Oh I've been slipping away
Well I've been drifting away
And I've been slipping
Into every word you say

I broke one
Why another one?
Too many times I've played the fool
But God knows my breaks brought me back to you

I broke one
Why another one?
I can't believe I'm seeing two
But God knows my breaks bear to save you

I've been waiting for you
And if I slow my breathing
I'll build a spine and make a move
I've been drifting away
Away from these average thoughts
And into every word you say

I've been drifting away
Oh I've been slipping away
Well I've been drifting away oh
And I've been slipping
Into every word you say
