lyrics

For the first time in my life
From a hotel room in Mexico
I've been hanging on this feeling cause it always gets away
The first is always right
You never hesitated either
When the words are worth repeating
Everyday will turn to night
It's the first time that I try to keep the ending a big secret
Try to change try to cheat it
For the first time in my life

But you were looking for direction
Trying to make it by
Always looking for the shortcuts
You’ve been racing this whole time
And everybody wanted something
But you just can't decide
Everybody wants the answers
But they're busy telling lies

I found a crack when I was younger underneath it
As I pulled on all the strings to find the pieces
I hate to tell you it's just another way to say it
But this thing that you call freedom
No it's not quite what it seems
You know it's never what it seems

But you were looking for direction
Trying to make it by
Always looking for the shortcuts
You’ve been racing this whole time
And everybody wanted something
But you just can't decide
Everybody wants the answers
But they're busy telling lies

I got the feeling
That you're troubled by your reasons
Use the fire it keeps you warm
Use your eyes so you can see them
It's the changing of the seasons
When it's always just repeating
Down the line you'll probably see’em
But for now you're deep in thought

But you were looking for direction
Trying to make it by
Always looking for the shortcuts
You’ve been racing this whole time
And everybody wanted something
But you just can't decide
Everybody wants the answers
But they're busy telling lies
