Lyrics Edit

(verse 1)

I'll hold your hand when you are feeling mad at me

yeah when the monsters wont go and the windows don't close

I'll pretend to see what you see

"how long?" I say, how long will you relive the things that are gone?

oh yeah the devil's on your back but I know you can shake him off

(chorus)

And everyday that you want to waste

that you want to waste, you can

and everyday that you want to wake up

and you want to wake, you can

and everyday that you want to change, yeah

I'll help you see it through

'cause I just really want to be with you

(verse 2)

you know its funny how freedom can make us feel contained

yeah when the mussels in out legs aren't used to all the walking

I know if you could snap both your fingers that you'd escape with me

but in the meantime I'll just wait here and listen to you

when you speak... or scream

(chorus) And everyday that you want to waste

that you want to waste, you can

and everyday that you want to wake up

and you want to wake, you can

and everyday that you want to change, yeah

I'll help you see it through

'cause I just really want to be with you

(verse 3) the truth cuts us and pulls us back up

and separates the things that look the same

you can fight it off, you can fight it off, you can

(chorus until fade)
