lyrics

I want to be in your arms
I didn't mean any harm
But what would I lose, closer to you
I need a PLACE OF MY OWN

Where'd you go
Feels like I just stepped in a hole
Feels like I just left, but it's already messed up
Live like you never grow old

Some love like you never been told
Some thoughts that you shouldn't withhold
And some people got reasons
To depict these changes in seasons

I'm tired of waiting on time
24 years that I'll rewind
Can't account for the the thing that I wasted
Moments arrived she's gone and now I can't decide

Write a note when I leave
I'll be the ghost up your sleeve
Jump just to break the routine
Yeah, and I'll fall in-between

So should I make my exit
Or take another chance, that's reckless
To rediscover, reminisce, and rebuild
I know what I want, and and I know that she will

You know I'm characteristic
I'm so low key that it's cryptic
Girl if you sneeze you might miss it
Gotta keep my mind on that mystic

Give me solace, give me sunday
Give me meaning, keep me running
And though it may not mean a lot
Can I give you all that I've got

Take the shot
Reminisce, rediscover, reconstruct
Re-embark to new places
Redefine good luck

If you don't know the feeling
Then I don't know what to say
If you missed all my meaning
Then don't look this way

I want to be in your arms
I didn't mean any harm
But what would I lose, closer to you
I need a PLACE OF MY OWN

*breathing room*

Yeah, but the high can't save you from the low
Take that hit if you'll take control
Acceptance, regret this
Dumb and restless, so no I can't go slow

I can't let go of that energy
And I'll take it all back if she's into me
No gravity, no wait and see
If I'm hung up on you can't call for free

So I jump without taking the fall
Tell them I'm twenty feet tall
Reminisce over you
Living life beyond the wall
See how I'm over it all

I can't talk about
Can't convey, you're holding still
Hold back the years, release the will
To try and make it right, cause I need to know
Before the world ends, how far we go

I want to be in your arms
I didn't mean any harm
But what would I lose, closer to you
I need a place of my...

And you don't want to be alone
And I know you're tired of waiting so long
And when will you be closer to me
I just want a place of our own
