Do you see what I see?

This town is colder now, I think it’s sick of us 
It’s time to make our move, I’m shakin off the rust 
I’ve got my heart set on anywhere but here 
I’m staring down myself, counting up the years 
Steady hands, just take the wheel… 
And every glance is killing me 
Time to make one last appeal… for the life I lead 

Stop and stare 
I think I’m moving but I go nowhere 
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared 
But I’ve become what I can’t be, oh 
Stop and stare 
You start to wonder why you’re ‘here’ not there 
And you’d give anything to get what’s fair 
But fair ain’t what you really need 
Oh, can u see what I see 

They’re tryin to come back, all my senses push 
Un-tie the weight bags, I never thought I could… 
Steady feet, don’t fail me now 
Gonna run till you can’t walk 
But something pulls my focus out 
And I’m standing down… 

Stop and stare 
I think I’m moving but I go nowhere 
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared 
But I’ve become what I can’t be, oh 
Stop and stare 
You start to wonder why you’re here not there 
And you’d give anything to get what’s fair 
But fair ain’t what you really need 
Oh, you don’t need 

What u need, what u need… 

Stop and stare 
I think I’m moving but I go nowhere 
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared 
But I’ve become what I can’t be 
Oh, do u see what I see…

-One Republic’s Stop and Stare

 

The lyrics of the song is so beautifully written. A little melancholic but, nevertheless, poetic.

I wonder too, when I stopped and look back, if I’m moving towards where I want to be, becoming who I think I want to be. It’s all what I think anyway, all relative, and so do I even see what I’m seeing?
