Lyrics


The older I get, the more it seems I watch my dreams get smaller

Hell no, don't get me wrong, I want more out of this life than I ever wanted
It's just that, these days I'd settle for less 
These days are second best

It's a line that's been drawn
I can't tell which side I'm on
It's a line that's been drawn
I've seen this coming all along

There's hope for the best, and those dog-eared pages that still jump outta my favorite books
Though the innocence in my eyes has faded, I tell myself to take a second look
Like I'm some kind of castaway who swears he sees land
Can I see a show of hands?

It's a line that's been drawn
I can't tell which side I'm on
It's a line that's been drawn
I've seen this coming all along

Hammering restless thoughts into bad poetry, 
Lying on our backs, laughing at the sun, like we were the first ones to ever see
The moon and the stars turned into cliches
You guessed it, it rained on our parade

It's a line that I've drawn
I can't tell which side I'm on
It's a line that I've drawn
I've seen this coming all along

It's a line that's been drawn

Should've seen it
Should've seen
Should've seen it
Should've seen
Should've seen it
(You had to see it)
(You had to see it coming)

You should've seen me
