lyrics

I've got a knack for moving forward, a history of not
A permanent solution that I've found but haven't got
A face against my fingertips, a feeling I have learned
'Cause a lifetime full of liars taught me
I don't ever get what I deserve

So I'm staring to the silence and wearing just a smile
I'll take what you will give me, be it inches, be it miles
'Cause I'm here for the duration, the frustration, and the trial
I'm not leaving in the morning
Even though I know you're leaving in a while

It's okay
And I'm fine
There's no way
And no time
So just stay
For right now
Right now

The days are passing slowly, and I'm still on my own
But with this unfamiliar feeling, suddenly I'm not alone
And I'm missing all that emptiness that got me through my teens
If you don't mind me being honest
I just don't know what that means

And for the first time in my life, I can't sing what's on my tongue
'Cause it's scary when I say it, or when you say it, or when I hear it
Sung by all those people who have felt what I can't hide
No solution to this problem
So just listen to me now and don't decide

It's okay
And I'm fine
There's no way
And no time
So just stay
For right now
Right now
