lyrics

A stranger asked me how I spend my time
Or what I do with the moments that are mine
I try to make a list, try to write it down
But all I hear is a draining sound

I built this for you so I don’t forget
I can’t let myself fall in love again
Dear world, I’m giving you my all
Will you be there to catch me when I fall?

Come on, come on. Just ask me.
Come on, come on. Prove me wrong
I'm trying to live with this decision
I'm just trying to be strong

I think of what we’ll do, try another list
Imagining a day that we make things different
There are no saviors, we’ve gotta make it out alive
No dream will ever save you; we’ll save ourselves this time

Come on, come on. Just ask me.
Come on, come on. Prove me wrong
We’re just trying to build our city
We’ll make each other strong

Come on, come on. Let's get going
Come on, come on. We can't stay
Everyone here is so lucky to be alive
Every day is groundhogs day

I won’t light myself on fire
Just to keep you warm
I won’t light the world on fire
Just to watch it burn
