We Are The Movies – The Story So Far lyrics

When I was 17 no they never used to call me by name
Or let me know that I had a part in all of these decisions
That I thought somebody would make
So I ran oh they shoved it down my throat
Always stand in line only take what's given
My decisions are my own
I'm sick of being under you

I tried to take the high road
But I already know where it goes
So I guess I'll take my chances down below
Cause I'm better off on my own

Time, oh you always drag me down
Pull my head under the water I can't breathe
I'll try but this ocean's sinking in
Treading water trying to get back to where it all began
I stand alone

Fast forward 23 staring out of the window of this hotel
My friends with their college degrees
Slowly making their way back home
I've made my own and it's broken down
Another 3 years go by not wasted
So I'll keep hanging tight cause
We're nowhere near the finish and it's getting better every night

I should be thanking you for everything
I had to make it on my own
So i could only have myself to blame

So you can take the high road
Cause I'm good right here
And I'll be waiting for you when you get here
Cause I'm better off on my own
