lyrics

Summer wind’s still blowing 'tween the trees
Carries your voice to me
It sings “life’s a breeze,
You’ve only to believe “

But I don’t have it figured out like you
Most nights I feel confused
Wish there was a way
That I could know what I’m supposed to do

If I wait and I stay
No nothing’s gonna change
Don’t want to make a mistake

The road is open wide
We can go anywhere tonight
Though we might get lost
It’s better than sticking in the same spot

The fall is inching into the air
We’re still standing here
In the same place
I’m wearing the same face, full of doubt and fear

See it’s hard trying to be more like you
Most nights I feel like a fool
Wish there was a way
To not be so afraid of all of these things

If I wait and I stay
No nothing’s gonna change
Don’t want to make a mistake

The road is open wide
We can go anywhere tonight
Though we might get lost
It’s better than sticking in the same spot

But my feet are stuck to the floor
And you won’t wait for me anymore
Though you might get lost you say
“It’s better than being held in the same spot"

If I wait and I stay
No nothing’s gonna change
Don’t want to make a mistake
