Since I met you I can’t sleep at night,
Now I’ve left town and I can’t change my mind,
I know you think it’s crazy but otherwise,
All I do is run around in circles

And if this is a rat race,
I just want to break out,
If there’s no finish line,
How do I quench all my doubt?
I know you think it’s crazy,
But my blind ambition’s,
Finally wearing me down,
It’s finally wearing me down

Work at my summer job spilling over through the year,
It’s just the face they see that’s kept me here,
And I thought the problem was that I couldn’t fall in love but it turns out,
That this was just too small-town


Now I can’t wait for the year to be over,
And now I can’t look at everyone else the same way,
The summer is the same temperature it was in the winter,
And you’re going backwards

No destination I’m finally changing my mind,
You’re so invasive that I can’t find the time,
And I try to stop what I’ve started,
A dangerous experiment,
Why do I feel so fine?
