Stay What You Are Lyrics

Senses Fail
All the maps of the world have been drawn
There's nothing to explore except your face
I keep getting older, but my heart stays the same age
I'd never want to live forever 'cause I'd have to watch everyone die
But death is what makes this whole life meaningful
It's what keeps me alive

I'm scared to death that I will never make it out alive and I'll be stuck in this mess forever

The older that I get, the more I find that each moment is a gift in time
The first time we saw Saves The Day, you never made it home
You spent the night with me
When I was young, it was a mystery
It took me years, but now I finally see what it is that you meant to me
Stay What You Are will always be our eulogy

When it rains in LA, people lose their s***
Just like I lost my mind in 2006
But that anxious boy has been buried in a shallow ditch
One day when I'm rotting in my grave, I'll look back on my life and I will say
"Why the hell did it take me so long to back that bottle off of my lips?"

Am I wasting all my time trying hard to find the line between holding on and letting go?

The older that I get, the more I find that each moment is a gift in time
The first time we saw Saves The Day, you never made it home
You spent the night with me
When I was young, it was a mystery
It took me years, but now I finally see what it is that you meant to me
Stay What You Are will always be our eulogy

I remember when you whispered in my ear
"Do not fear when I am gone
I'll be right here"
When all the world is wasting away, I hold my heart and say your name

The older that I get, the more I find that each moment is a gift in time
The first time we saw Saves The Day, you never made it home
You spent the night with me
When I was young, it was a mystery
It took me years, but now I finally see what it is that you meant to me
Stay What You Are will always be our eulogy

Am I wasting all my time trying hard to find the line between holding on and letting go?
