Now you wont wake up

A Nightmare Of Your Own

Here I am waiting behind the door

Seems I'm still waiting on your call

I said too much,

but it was enough

More than enough

For sure

Will I ever make it back to holding you?

Through it all?

You were there through my awakening

Something you played a massive part in

Now you wont wake up

From a nightmare of your own

Not everyone's ambitious,

but you deserve the world, kid

Don't just settle for spending five hours on the phone

When you can always come back home

So I hear right now we are not supposed to talk

Seems like she's a little insecure

She blocks

She unblocks

Quite enough

More than enough

Then has the cheek to throw around the word "stalked"

Will you ever be the version of you I've met once before?

You were there through my awakening

Something you played a massive part in

Now you wont wake up

From a nightmare of your own

Not everyone's ambitious,

but you deserve the world, kid

Don't just settle for spending five hours on the phone

Not when you know you can always come back home

heartbreak
