lyrics

5 A.M. alone covered in dread
Trying to sort the dreams out of my head
Gray light creeping up the bed

I’ve been working so long and losing sleep
Building glass walls that I can’t keep
Fighting the world back under my feet

Pale thin light shines on these thoughts
They say with time you can do anything you want
Your patience will pay off

So when is time gonna get around to me
When is time gonna get around to me

What would you think if I told you
If I let it all out and reveal myself
How would you act if I showed you
Or should I keep weaving around

I keep thinking that I’m strong
But I can fake it if I’m wrong
As long as it don’t take long

So when is time gonna get around to me
When is time gonna get around to me

‘Cause I don’t think that I can last
Another night behind these thin walls of broken glass
My hope has long since past
Our lives change and go by so fast
I only hope innocence can last

So when is time gonna get around to me
When is time gonna get around to me
