[Chorus]
I'm lookin' for a reason to stay.
I'm all wound up and tied in knots today.
I'm lookin' for a reason not to go.
When the morning comes, I'll be on my way.

Every night I ask myself again
Just what it was that made our dream begin.
It seemed like a good idea way back then.

But I'm wondering now what daydream took me in.

[Chorus]

Yesterday I tried once more to find
A way to share the trouble on my mind.
It seems like you turn away every time.
I used to like it here, I can't remember why.

[Chorus: x2]
