lyrics

V.1
I'm at least 5 hours away from everything I've known
Far enough for freedom but close enough to go
Home for a well needed vacation from
Fending for myself and waking up on my own
The city skyline was never beautiful to me
Till the day I had to leave

V.2
Sitting in a place where I've sat a thousand times
Nothing has changed but something isn't right
There's a weird kind of aura about these old places
Invisible shadows of other times and faces
The city skyline was never beautiful to me
Till the day I had to leave

C
Life is a series of "you had to be there"s
And I'm scared that I won't be there
Cause while I'm off in my own little world
Somewhere out there little girls are growing up

V.3
Days are moving slowly but time is flying by
This is where I'm meant to be but I don't know why
and all of a sudden I'm filled with these questions
Cause I'm just a kid giving bad first impressions
You don't know what you have until it's gone
But you pick yourself up and move on

(Repeat Chorus)

B
When is the next time we'll be together
Will it be tomorrow or will it be never
and how many hearts are you gonna shatter
When you grow up and you say the past doesn't matter

Life is a series of
Life is a series of

C.2
Life is a series of "you had to be there"s
And I'm scared that I won't be there
I think I'm even more terrified
That maybe one day I won't care
