This Time - Vanessa Carlton

It's 4 a.m. and I'm wide awake
Waiting for my thoughts to fade
A flickering of all of my mistakes
And as the light starts creeping in
I slowly feel
The day I'm missing
But I won't even know where to begin

Do I push too hard?
I fall too fast
A moment never seems to last
And will I stop long enough to know

Cuz everybody burns
And when it starts to hurt
I cry
I feel it in my veins
I just can't walk away, this time.

Your words circle in my head
And weigh so heavy on my chest
And I'm crushed by your expectation
I only want to do some good
Too dumb to know if I could
And I just wanna feel the days I'm in

And do I go too far?
Not far enough?
Why can't I keep my big mouth shut and do
We lead the life that we should?

And everybody burns
And when it starts to hurt I cry
I feel it in my veins
I just can't walk away, this time.

Did I say too much again?
I'm just a girl in a panic
If I tell you my truth
Am I getting through?
And it just seems I should confess
Who am I to pretend?
This is more than I can carry

Everybody burns
And when it starts to hurt
I cry

I hold my head up high
I know ill be alright, this time.

I feel it in my veins
I just can't walk away this time.
This time
This time
This time
This time

It's 4 a.m and I'm wide awake
Waiting for my thoughts to fade
And it's time like these I see your face
