Reasons Why - Nickel Creek

Where am I today?
I wish that I knew.
Cause looking around,
there's no sign of you.

I don't remember one jump or one leap.
Just quiet steps away from your lead.

I'm holding my heart out,
but clutching it too.
Feeling is short of a love
that we once knew.

Calling this a home,
when it's not even close.
Playing a role
with nerves left exposed.

Standing on a darkest day,
stumbling through the lines.
Others have excuses,
I have my reasons why.

You get distracted
by the dreams of our own.
But nobody's happy
when feeling alone.

Knowing how hard it hurts
when we fall,
we lean another ladder
against the wrong wall.

And climb high
to the highest rung.
To shake fists at the sky.
Others have excuses,
I have my reasons why.

With so much deception,
it's hard not to wander away
(echo) hard not to wander away.
It's hard not to wander away.
