The American Scene – A Million Minutes In The Making lyrics

You are whole.
I am the sum of all the things
That I don't know and everything between;
A love that I lost, the faith that it costs me,
And all of my plans tangled up in strangers' hands.

Well, I sang about a heart. I thought how better intentions
Got up and got out while I prayed for a change.

If I ran away from my pride, could you look me in the eyes and say,
"Stay by my side, 'cause I'm better than I was before.
These seasons left me wanting more. This time I promise that I'll get it right?"

You are heat.
I am the water crashing at your feet,
While we battle for control of,
What my mother taught me was, a soul,
But no one showed me how to hold out of arms reach.

Now, I'm choking on uncertainty while we sing about this feeling.
Keep anxiously repeating each line after line while you wait for my calls.

If I ran away from my pride, could you look me in the eyes and say,
"Stay by my side, 'cause I'm better than I was before.
These seasons left me wanting more. This time I promise that I'll get it right?"

You are the fire in my voice when I sing.
You are the empty space at the center of everything.
You are the person that I swore that I could be. Oh, woah.
If I could just lift this heaviness from inside of me.

If I ran away from my pride, could you look me in the eyes and say,
"Stay by my side, 'cause I'm better than I was before.
These seasons left me wanting more. This time I promise that I'll get it right?"
