lyrics

WANTING FOR EARNING

Awaiting time, trapped in a haven of safety
Safe at least from my guilty mind
Where the price I can’t pay
Believe that I’ve tried
I feel awake in a dream
I’m sure things aren’t what they seem
In this realm I reside

I’m wanting for earning
Longing for learning the lesson that just wouldn’t take
I must be mistaken
But your way of making love seems so hard to fake
What will I do
When you realize I’m not deserving of you
And we crash on the shore
And drift into nevermore

This hate inside is the cross left to bear
Truth of life if that life is fair
And we learn as we go
But reap what we sew
So alone in the world
Lonely boy with the only girl
Who erodes through the snow

I’m wanting for earning
Longing for learning the lesson that just wouldn’t take
I must be mistaken
But your way of making love seems so hard to fake
What will I do
When you realize I’m not deserving of you
And I’m left on the floor
And you fade into nevermore
