Motionless At Last

Your heart was made to break
You’ve never been this wide awake
You’ve never had so much at stake, it’s not a game

So when you figure out what kind of boys
You dream about, you’ll find the choice is yours
Make up your mind, don’t be afraid

My eyes are on the road
I’m cutting ties and now I know
That when she lies it’s just a code I’m gonna’ crack

These lines are slowing down
She’s feeling fine inside a frown
I need a sign straight out of town, no looking back

Can she save herself this time
Can she save herself at all

On a rooftop freezing cold
After midnight’s comes and goes
All alone except the moon and what you owe

After hours half a glass
Skyline motionless at last
Slow and peaceful, halfway dead but on the road

Can she save herself this time
Can she save herself at all

Tie me down, tie me down
I need to catch my breath and then
Somehow get back on my own feet again

Lie me down, lie me down
Can’t believe I’m still this bad
About losing things I never even had

Find some meaning in the days
To come, a reason still to wake
Running wild along a home made way that isn’t always safe
