Take me home, Away from this mess
Away from what’s empty
And only makes breathing irrelevant

Take me home, Away from this distraction
It’s endlessly stealing
All the purpose and feeling within my bones

Oh no, I can’t wait any longer
Oh, no, I can’t wait anymore

I cannot stand one more moment
Of tireless living
Endlessly giving what I don’t have
No, I cannot stand one more moment
Where nothing is perfect
It just doesn’t seem worth it
To try again

Take me home, Away from this madness
Where nothing’s worth having
And yet everyone’s grabbing for something more

Take me home, Away from what I’ve become
Away from this tolerance
And the ceaseless indifference to what I know

No, I can’t wait any longer
Oh no, I can’t wait anymore


Well all I’ve been searching and hoping for
I can’t even know if it’s there fore sure
And they’ll say it’s all in my head
But it’s working me over
Just get me out of this mess,
And with every last breath I breathe I promise this
I won’t go one more day without You

No, I cannot stand one more moment
I’ve let it rule me
Overcome and undo me, time and again

No, I will not stand one more moment
Living without You
So far from what I know is true
