lyrics

It's been 28 days since I walked out on you
Now I just want to work for myself
It took an awful long time to build up to this
But if I'd waited any longer it would have
Ended in hell

I don't believe any more in waking up early
I don't want to compare and compete
But if that's all that we're built for
I don't want to be there when the system breaks

So fly on little dreams
You're not welcome anymore
How dare you distract me for so long
There's been a lot of bad blowing
Going on
And I don't know if I'll
Weather the storm

I imagined this day for so long
Now it's here I don't know what to do with myself
From the outside in it's all rhythms and sins
But this time spent alone, well the company's killing me softly

Living in the moment's fine but moments are rare
I don't know what I'll do without you in my hair
If this is the universe then I accept my fate
But it's not what I, it can't be what I,
Signed up for

So fly on little dreams
You're not welcome anymore
How dare you distract me for so long
There's a lot of bad bowing's
Going on
But I don't know if I'll
Weather the storm...
