lyrics

My thoughts run faster than my mouth
I cannot catch my words before they come out
I've been going way too fast
And still coming in dead last

Please excuse the things I do
in my 3 AM delirium
I swear this isn't what I'm like
when I'm in control of my mind

I've been getting tongue-tied
It's like I don't know just who I am
Can't count the times that I've cried
and I really do not understand why
Something on the way has turned me bitter and shy
But this is not the way I want to live my life

Well I am on the borderline
between not-so-great and doing fine
But mediocre's not the way
I wanna live out all my days

Staying up until one or two
and then sleeping till the afternoon
is nothing but a waste of time
and I've been guilty of that crime

Well I've been getting tongue-tied
It's like I don't know just who I am
Can't count the times that I've cried
and I really do not understand why
Something on the way has turned me bitter and shy
But this is not the way I want to live my life

I've been getting tongue-tied
It's like I don't know just who I am
Can't count the times that I've cried
and I really do not understand why
Something on the way has turned me bitter and shy
But this is not the way I want to live my life
