Civil Twilight – Next To Me lyrics

You are my only escape
You are the reason that I wait
On the corner of this empty street
Oh, I just can't wait to meet

There's so much a man can do
There's so much a man can say
See, I have done so many things wrong
That you should have saw me away

I've got this second chance, I'm gonna take it
I've got this song and dance, I'm gonna take it
I've got all that I need and I can taste it
I've got you next to me, I don't want to waste it

You are my only embrace
You are the light that lights my face
Any fool would do the same
Oh, to follow in your trace

People come and people go
But I know I should have been replaced
I know it

I've got this second chance, I'm going to take it
I've got this song and dance, I'm going to take it
I've got all that I need and I can taste it
I've got you next to me and I don't want to waste it

I'm gonna take it
All that I can get
I'm gonna take it

It's beautiful, the way you move
The way you take me back
Here she comes, around the bend
She's coming to take me back

Oh, I've got this second chance, I'm going to take it
I've got this song and dance, I'm going to take it
I've got all that I need, I can taste it
I've got you next to me and I don't want to waste it

'Cause you are my only escape
You are the reason that I wait
