Back to the middle I know I'll never ever be the kind of man The one who understands the difference in your plans It's a long time So many questions that you wouldn't want to bring Like how we got to where the silence is the king It's a long time But I know it ain't easy to do If my mind's made up It'll be calling for you Take my chance on one more minute with you I know it isn't easy for you Turning over till we're black and blue Oh yeah If ever you decide to come in through the door Don't hesitate to slide beside me on the floor It's a long time Back to the middle where it's always hit or miss Who could have guessed the end could wind up just like this It's a long time It's a long time Out of the goodness of your heart it's waiting still Knee deep in rubble like a loser on the hill It's a long time Well It's a long time But I know it ain't easy to do If my mind's made up It'll be calling for you Take my chances on the minute we're through Take my chance for one more minute with you I know it isn't easy for you Turning over till we're black and blue Oh yeah

Is it good holding out For everything you wanted Was the fall worth the wait If you run from where you started I feel it too I'm gonna bite my tongue Do you feel it too? We're just chasing the sun You say you're not ready You say it feels heavy Heading into something new But will everything you want ever be enough for you Turn around Turn the page You'll see everything you wanted It's not real It's a game you get everything you wanted I feel it too I'm gonna bite my tongue Do you feel it too? We're just chasing the sun You say you're not ready You say it feels heavy Heading into something new But will everything you want ever be enough for you Is it good holding out For everything you wanted You say you're not ready You say it feels heavy Heading into something new You've been looking for something Something in the nothing Never be enough for you But I think I know you better I thinks it's now or never Never be enough for you Cos it's true But will everything you want ever be enough for you

Trick of the light If I could memorise the feeling I will use it when I'm old For those times I have forgotten you Banking on revelations But the brave will not slip twice Made us wonder if it's the best we can do Letting go is hard Even if we pull down our guard And I'll toss and turn till I can't sleep at all Lately I get the feeling I'm a stranger in my head Should I recognise the face in view? Letting go is hard Even if we pull down our guard And I'll toss and turn till I can't sleep at all When we look it's bright We're all falling for the trick of the light I'll amuse myself till daytime turns to night

I am not afraid of a little white lie Let it wash away The seconds will be ticking The hourglass spinning On to a new day I don’t want to wait for you Seems you go when the night is new Just because you think this it’s all for you I am not afraid of a little bit of dirt Let it come my way The doors are wide open The rules are unspoken Let it come what may I don’t wanna wait for you Seems you go when the night is new Just because you think this it’s all for you And I can’t see your face Over the sun going south Keep the faith And it’s more than just nothing More than you can bear It’s moving empty air I don’t wanna wait for you I don’t wanna wait for you Just because you think it's all Just because you think it's all Just because you think it's all for you
5.
Admit Now, Pay Later I must admit I was wrong when I thought we were happy I must have stared out the window with only one eye So you may not find There's no comfort in strangers when the lines are all blurry Like a scramble for a peaceful state of mind So you may not find The happy left behind That you left behind Can you hear me now, I'm running every time You are better than this Cut the air with a knife, it all feels so heavy Leaning on reputations by your design So you may not find The happy left behind That we left behind Can you hear me now, I'm running every time You are better than this Though you've gone ahead I'll be playing back every word that's said
6.
I once held her in my arms She said she would always stay But I was cruel I treated her like a fool I threw it all away Once I had mountains in the palm of my hand And rivers that ran through every day I must have been mad I never knew what I had Until I threw it all away Love is all there is, it makes the world go 'round Love and only love, it can't be denied No matter what you think about it You just won't be able to do without it Take a tip from one who's tried So if you find someone that gives you all of her love Take it to your heart, don't let it stray For one thing that's certain You will surely be a-hurtin' If you throw it all away If you throw it all away
