this countdown lyrics – mae

are you getting tired?
i think we’ve gone and lost the fire.
but i don’t want to fight anymore.
i’ve had enough of this town.
i can see the signs and i can read between the lines.
but i don’t know what we were fighting for.
i am just trying to break out.

i’ve been waiting for something.
i’ve been sitting for too long.
i’ve been waiting but oh,
tonight this one last try goes on and on and on.
i’ve been waiting for something.
i’ve been sitting for too long.
i’ve been waiting but oh,
tonight this one last try goes on and on and on.

you put your nets out but still you chose to do without.
the only way to catch the b*tterfly was never waiting for the wings.
and as seasons bring change, and as the seconds fade away, i still don’t know why were holding on.
but i am still trying to break out.

i’ve been waiting for something.
i’ve been sitting for too long.
i’ve been waiting but oh,
tonight this one last try goes on and on and on.
i’ve been waiting for something.
i’ve been sitting for too long.
i’ve been waiting but oh,
tonight this one last try goes on and on and on.

should’ve known better than to listen
when the dreams and the words started falling apart.
should’ve known i would’ve hit the ground running.
but did you think that the night would possess us?
take us over like the rain that’s falling down?
did you knotice when the clock stopped running?
running? running? running?

this is the countdown.
you see our time is running out.
i tread to stay about the waterline,
but never taking off the weights that keep us stuck here.
in the comfort and in the fear.
i’ll never know what we were fighting for.
but i’m still looking to break out.

i’ve been waiting for something.
i’ve been sitting for too long.
i’ve been waiting but oh,
tonight this one last try goes on and on and on.
i’ve been waiting for something.
i’ve been sitting for too long.
i’ve been waiting but oh,
tonight this one last try goes on and on and on.
