Vivid – If I Were You lyrics

If I were you - I think I'd stay
Just far enough to leave
Before the ice might break

If I were you - At least I'd wait
Just close enough to get
What others might take

I'm moving across
I'm moving too fast
Sometimes I'm much too slow
But how should I know?

I call to my past
Then turning my head
Present's what I got instead

I'm talkin' too loud
I whisper and moan
Sometimes I'm used to speak
Of nothing at all

I'm holding me down
And lift myself up
Though I'm half way there I stop

I'm wearing a frown
I'm cracking a smile
Sometimes I'm not so sure
Whom I habit for

I swim like a stone
A swallow it all
And sure I'm talking off o fall

Here we are
And we're all the same
Watch the tride roll in
And roll away again
