I stand on no brink
Yet I’m always on edge
Our love puts me in a place
Between a pocket full of letters
That need to be sent
And a pen that’s low on ink.

You’ve been tracking the run
Your tank is on empty
Now I’m feeling the burn
When you were turning the tables
And lighting a candle and say a prayer
For the early end

You never thought you would come through so quickly
In the silence that dwells between the walls of your mind
You knew you didn’t stand a chance
But somewhere you still thought there was a slim hope
You would get out.

When you pick up the reins
With your new flame
Your course spins a race of its own
The road is hard to keep
And the sand slips between your feet
You can guide, maybe direct it
But you’re really not the one in control
You’ve just got a representing vote

There’s no big shiny red button
No tyranny to justify your command
Just a vote.
And what it took.
And what it meant.
No more baby
No less

I never thought I would come through so quickly
In the silence that dwells between the walls of my mind
I knew I didn’t stand a chance
But somewhere you still thought there was a slim hope
I would get out.

And there’s no big shiny red button
No tyranny to justify my command
Just a vote.
And what it took.
And what it meant.
No more baby
No less.
