You wanted it too late
You wanted it too late now
I can't keep track of all your tears
You're crying rivers way too long
I'm tired of loneliness
And way more tired of wasted time
As I'm still, you barely look alive
These sharks will do so much good

Just keep your wits about you, don't let it end you
And summon everything you've held up in reserve
Don't fall for every single stolen glance and wink
Try to keep your heart on higher shelves once

What are you holding back?
I know you've wild horses on the inside of you
(Stop holding back)
Now slip the tattoo on
Serenity, it scorns your every move
(Stop holding back)
I pick you up in [?]
And no you don't have time without it
(Stop holding back)
I know I don't know much
But I do know when to preach
(Stop holding back)

Oh, you wanted it to work
You wanted it to work so much
But it's been broken in your hands
The minute that it found your hands
Oh, you're trying not to blink
And what you wanna see what is
Oh, it hasn't finished you
It's only that it feels that way

Just keep your wits about you, don't let it end you
And summon everything you've held up in reserve
Don't fall for every single stolen glance and wink
Try to keep your heart on higher shelves once

What are you holding back
I know you've wild horses on the inside of you
(Stop holding back)
Now slip the tattoo on
Serenity, it scorns your every move
(Stop holding back)
I pick you up [?]
And no you don't have time without it
(Stop holding back)
I know I don't know much
But I do know when to preach
(Stop holding back)

(Don't hold back)
(Don't hold back)
(Don't hold back)

(Don't hold back)
(Don't hold back)
(Don't hold back)

(Don't hold back) Gotta live wide awake
(Don't hold back) Gotta live wide awake
(Don't hold back) Gotta live wide awake
(Stop holding back)

(Don't hold back) Gotta live wide awake
(Don't hold back) Gotta live wide awake
(Don't hold back) Gotta live wide awake
(Stop holding back)
