lyrics

You use your words
They fill my cup
I scratch them off
As they come up
And after years of this game
The list has slowly worn down
There's only two that remain
It's something that we don't talk about
It's so close to your name
I'm so far from you now
Would you see me the same
If I said it out loud
When you're two hours late and upside down

And though I want to, I'm not ready
My heart is saying yes but my mind tells me not yet
And though I want to, I'm not ready
Oh yeah, I want to, but am I ready?
And I wonder what it's like to control this half life
I want to but am I ready?

If I had it all, what would I gain?
I'd sit at your table
Do it every day
To name an integral part of what I want to be true
If you can't have the star you know it's not the fault of the moon
These years have been hard
But we'll understand soon
Taking care through the dark
There's no way I can lose
When it's time to start to be like you

And though I want to, I'm not ready
My heart is saying yes but my mind tells me not yet
And though I want to, I'm not ready
Oh yeah, I want to, but am I ready?
And I wonder, is it right to restore this half life?
I want to but am I ready?

So I'll leave it to you first
