Vanessa carlton - This time

It's 4 A.M, and I'm wide awake
Waiting for my thoughts to fade
And a flickering of all of my mistakes

And as the light starts creeping in
I slowly feel the day I'm missing
But I wouldn't even know where to begin

I knew I'd push too hard, or fall too fast
The moment never seems to last
And will I stop for long enough to know
That everybody burns
And when it starts to hurt
I cry
I feel it in my veins
I just can't walk away
This time

Your words circle in my head
And weigh so heavy on my chest
And I'm crushed by your expectation


I only wanna do some good
Too dumb to know if I could
And I just wanna feel the day's I'm in

I knew I'd push too hard, not hard enough
Why can't I keep my big mouth shut
And do we lead the life that we should?
Cause everybody burns
And when it starts to hurt
I cry
I feel it in my veins
I just can't walk away
This time

And did I say too much again
I'm just a girl in a panic
And if I tell you my truth, what am I getting through?
And it just seems I should confess
And who am I to pretend?
And this is more than I can carry

Cause everybody burns
And when it starts to hurt
I cry
I feel it in my veins
I just cant walk away
This time

I hold my head up high
I know I'll be alright this time
ah, ah, ah
ah, ah, ah
Its 4 AM and I'm wide awake
Waiting for my thoughts to fade
And its times like these I see your face
