Songs > Wellwishers > Lyrics

If you had to make it matter
But you just can’t find the words
When you’re waiting for an answer
That you’ve already heard
Then you’re drowning in the moment
Cause you’ve never learned to swim
As the distance grows between the shores
You know how this could end

Are you thankful for your wellwishers
Who put you in your way
Or bitter cause your currency
Is lost in the exchange
So forget about your handfuls
When it’s worthless your supply
As the sun begins to grow red
You’re running low on time

I have to wonder are you stuck under
Clouds or possibilities
Why can’t you turn against those urges?
They’ll desert you guaranteed.
If nothing’s certain than that’s worse
Than this confusion as it intrudes on you and me

If you fit into your patterns
It should come as no surprise
As it safely starts to shatter
You learn to be polite

So be hopeful as a candle
Is worried for its flame
The more that you can handle here
The less you’d feel the same.

I have to wonder are you stuck under
Clouds or possibilities
Why can’t you turn against those urges?
They’ll desert you guaranteed.
If nothing’s certain than that’s worse
Than this confusion as it intrudes on you and me
