Tonight, my heart paces
My head pounds
Like I downed a cup of coffee
I know what's right, but it's hard to do
Tomorrow is the day
And I'm only ten min's away
I so wish it were
A moving melting mirage
That I couldn't reach or catch
But I'm here now, I dunno how
Did I pause praying?
Or did I stop studying?
'Twas while working your vineyard
I got trapped in this love yarn
Am I at fault for falling over? After all
I asked you take them butterflies away
Nay, King of kings
You gave 'em extra wings
Now my mouth blinks
My eyes mutter
Rehearsing my parting lines
Tomorrow must come, ain't no doubt
I wanna do right. I want out!
