Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I felt for sure last night that once we said goodbye

No one else will know these lonely dreams

No one else will know that part of me

I'm still driving away and I'm sorry every day

I won't always love these selfish things

I won't always live not stopping

[Verse 2]

It was my turn to decide

I knew this was our time

No one else will have me like you do

No one else will have me, only you

[Chorus]

You'll sit alone forever if you wait for the right time

What are you hoping for?

I'm here and now I'm ready

Holding on tight

Don't give away the end

The one thing that stays mine

[Verse 3]

Amazing still it seems

I'll be 23

I won't always love what I'll never have

I won't always live in my regrets

[Chorus]

You'll sit alone forever if you wait for the right time

What are you hoping for?

I'm here and now I'm ready

Holding on tight

Don't give away the end

The one thing that stays mine
