Songs > Miami Virtue > Lyrics

When I was young, still a kid
I was unprepared, never thought before I did
And now as I look back I can’t believe it
I told lies, needed proof, I was further from the truth
So I locked myself in the corner of my room
Yeah I thought maybe my view could be better
I never knew what I did, it would all come back
I’d be forced to sift through all the misdirection
I believed in.

I relied on my youth, I could make up an excuse
And collected scars, yeah, I thought that I could choose
And my way would be destined to deliver

You never have as long as you want
So don’t get caught up in the…
We never could take back time that we’re wasting

I only hope that you’ve been listening
But I doubt you could repeat a thing
Yeah I’ve been in that seat before
It’s always easy to ignore
When no one wants or needs advice
From someone they don’t think is right
And just cause I’ve been wrong before
It doesn’t mean I don’t want more for
You live in the long-term world and it’s hard to endure
(But ya) Do cause you’ve already seen and
You know the routine now
(We) maybe could meet in the middle
It’s not too difficult
(To) Cause we’re both just stuck with spinning wheels

The odds aren’t any easier on either side
And just because you say it doesn’t make it right
Don’t think I ever could repay you
But it’s still my life
I hope I never have to say or go forever a day
Without You

(You) live in the long-term world and it’s hard to endure
(But ya)
(Do) cause you’ve already seen and
You know the routine now
(We) maybe could meet in the middle
It’s not too difficult
(To) Cause we can’t take back this wasted time, but
(You) never have as long as you want so don’t get caught up
(But ya)
(Do) Yeah you’ve already seen and it’s not any easier but
(We) maybe could meet in the middle
It’s not too difficult
(To) Cause we can’t take back this wasted time.
