slow me down, take my hand

this is the wrong way to run

i’m too fast, i’m too hot

always jumping the gun

running fast to your light

i’m always out of breath

before the finish line

and i wonder, will i survive with what’s left

 

here i go, i won’t learn

as fast as i can, i will run

and my lungs, oh they burn

i will give all until we’re done

to see your eyes and it’s hue

i’ll set fire to these streets

is that alright with you?

that is until you leave

and you’ll know how far by the count of my steps

and i wonder, will i survive with what’s left
