lyrics

I've been at war for weeks I guess
It's getting close to years
I've been drowning in the fears
Of all the methods that have served me oh so well
It's not a choice I've made
It's just a game I've played

I'm tired of this half-life
This half light
In half time
So it's high time
I start trying
And stop wasting time

I'm not waiting anymore
I'm not signaling your ship to come to shore
I'm just looking for the mirror
That shows me who I want to be tomorrow
And I'm not waiting anymore
I won't be lighting up the beacons on the shore
I'm taking my time
And taking back all the shipwrecks I left behind me

One more time for the big prize
I'm shaking in these sheets
Trying to stay on the beat
And falling back into the answer that I need
It's just behind the eyes
Like I've been waiting my whole life to fly

I'm not waiting anymore
I'm not signaling your ship to come to shore
I'm just looking for the mirror
That shows me who I want to be tomorrow
And I'm not waiting anymore
I won't be lighting up the beacons on the shore
I'm taking my time
And taking back all the shipwrecks I left behind me

Got caught up in a moment
Got stuck inside a dream
I finally found the answer
I finally changed my scene
There's a knocking at the window
And my own eyes stared back at me
She said: you are the water, I am the ocean
Take my hand and learn to breathe

I'm not waiting anymore
I'm not signaling your ship to come to shore
I'm just looking at the skyline and wondering
Why I've never seen that star before
And I'm not waiting anymore
I won't be lighting up the beacons on the shore
I'm taking my time
And looking out at all the waves stretched out before me
