lyrics

Always wanting what I can't have
Always wanting what I can't have
The light is green but I don't wanna go
And when it's red I plow ahead
Reaching for what's taken
Cuz those are the best ones
Timing's a bitch sometimes
But we just can't know these things

No matter how smart we are
No matter how much we do
Now matter how hard we try
We still submit to time

Never fully accepting
Cuz I'm busy regretting
Life is still moving on
These memories holding strong
This world is a big one
Ready to take you in
Suddenly this town's small
gotta find a new place to begin

No matter how smart we are
No matter how much we do
Now matter how hard we try
We still submit to time

Always wanting the one thing (one thing)
That's not there for the taking
Wanting the one thing (one thing)
That's not there for the taking
Even when taking it (taking it)
Would lead to it breaking
Wanting the one thing...
(x2)

End:
Wanting the one thing (x3)

Always wanting the one thing
That's not there for the taking
When the light is red
And I plow ahead
Reaching for what I want

But it just can't be (x5)
