Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I keep my focus on the simple things

Trying to find some peace along the way

Wish I knew how long I'm supposed to wait

Holding on but just barely

[Pre-Chorus]

Got the feeling I've been talking to a dead, dead line

There's always a reason to let it change

Is there anyone there listening while you cry, cry, cry?

There's always a reason for the pain

[Chorus]

I'm doing the things that I'm told every day, every day, every day

Then why does it feel like I'm moving in place, in place, in place?

[Verse 2]

Never had anything to prove

But never was anyone like you

All you fought through, all you had to face

Made you stronger, unafraid

[Pre-Chorus]

Got the feeling I've been talking to a dead, dead line

There's always a reason to let it change

Is there anyone there listening while you cry, cry, cry?

Always a reason for the pain

[Chorus]

I'm doing the things that I'm told every day, every day, every day

Then why does it feel like I'm moving in place, in place, in place?

I gotta believe that you're there when I sing, when I sing, when I sing

'Cause if you're not real, I'm losing my head, in my head, in my head

[Pre-Chorus]

Got the feeling I've been talking to a dead, dead line

There's always a reason to let it change

Is there anyone there listening while you cry, cry, cry?

Always a reason for the pain

[Chorus]

I'm doing the things I've been told every day, every day, every day

Then why does it feel like I'm moving in place, in place, in place?

I gotta believe that you're there when I sing, when I sing, when I sing

'Cause if you're not real, I'm losing my head, in my head, in my head

[Outro]

I keep my focus on the simple things

Trying to find some peace along the way
