Umphrey's McGee > Songs > Attachments > Lyrics

Waiting in line for a melody

Maybe this time I'll be right where I'm supposed to be

You know everybody's trying to get some

I won't be the first and you won't be the last one now

Really there's no obligations
When everything's left your own motivation
And even if you can't ever find it
You know it never hurts if you gotta redefine
What it means when you get down to it
Don't really need you to prove anything
But I hope that you do it
And then you know, so

And while we're on the subject

Ain't nobody perfect

Somebody will always lose

And the last time that I checked it

We're all still connected

Even through these different views

Since I got your attention

I still have to mention

Apologies are overdue

And I shouldn't have to have to say it

No I'm not complaining

It's something you already knew

You should stop before you say something you don't mean

Everybody needs someone to believe in

It's okay, know you're not alone

It's the empty shade of a promise made when no one really knows

And while we wait, don't get so attached

You're only here for a moment, and you know that it won't last

Another day is given back to you

Don't be so ungrateful if you know you'll never use it at all
