I’ve noticed
People, they all have motives,
Different, yet all the same.
I've fumbled
Through every word that I've spoken
And I barely knew your name.
I'm tongue-tied,
Runs through my blood and my insides
Some things we can't escape
But if we try, if we try,
We can leave this behind

It’s been a lifetime, a lifetime we waited for
A simple question kid; are you with me or not at all?

Your eyes wide,
You’re always ahead of the curve tide, quiet and confident
Oh, we stood there, awkward and youthful we tangled
A piece of my soul escaped
Oh, we are restless and tired sleeping with giants
A modern mankind with their egos of fire and it seems like

It’s been a lifetime, a lifetime we waited for
A simple question kid; are you with me or not at all?
Are we wasting time, or is it wasting us?
It’s been a lifetime waiting for now, now.
Well, you’ve got to find a way
You’ve got to find a way, you’ve got to find a way, you’ve got to find a way, you’ve got to find a way before you fold in

It’s been a lifetime, a lifetime I waited for
Simple question kid, are you with me or not at all
It’s been a lifetime, a lifetime we waited for
I need an answer, kid, you’re either with me or not at all, now, now
Are we wasting time, or is it wasting us?
It’s been a lifetime, a lifetime, a lifetime, lifetime, yeah
Well, you’ve got to find a way, you’ve got to find a way, you’ve got to find a way, you’ve got to find a way
Tell me you’ve got to find a way, you’ve got to find a way, you’ve got to find a way before you fold in

    i think this is about william's (or someone's) first time, and how there was so much peer pressure that it wasn't even special.
