Dashboard Confessional — Drowning lyrics

And we're drowning you out
In boasts of defection
If everything was up to me I would be gone by the first sign
The first sign of hope I'd be packed up and out of my way.

And time has been spread so thin
And it's just hours till the day begins.
And the things that are keeping you here are not keeping me here
And the things that are keeping you here will keep me away.

And you'll be sorry
Isn't that what they'll say.
Don't follow your heart cause it just seems to get in your way.

And don't ever leave here
And mope at your leisure
And straighten out your crease here
And truth is in a tall beer.

Are you drowning your fears
In a glass of deception?
When everything is hazy than everything will be ok .
When everything is hazy than you won't be sad that you stayed.

And time has been spread so thin
And it's just hours till the day begins.
And the things that are keeping you here are not keeping me here
And the things that are keeping you here will keep me away.

And you'll be sorry
Isn't that what they'll say.
Don't follow your heart cause it just seems to get in your way.

And don't ever leave here
And mope at your leisure
And straighten out your crease here
And truth is in a tall beer.
