Ambition Submit Correct Lyrics

Lately I've been measuring mistakes that I've been makin'
It's classical over-reach and stretchin' way beyond my station
Whatever I've been drinkin' lends a small amount of solace
That's endlessly proportional to how badly I want it

So long, ambition, it's not a competition
I can't win anymore, I can't win anymore
An odd position that I got the suspicion
I have been here before, I have been here before

Every single word from you is uncomfortably appealing
And reservations tellin' me to forget what I'm hearing
Part of me is screamin' you should just come out and ask her
As if there were a chance in hell that'd get me what I'm after

So long, ambition, it's not a competition
I can't win anymore, I can't win anymore
An odd position that I got the suspicion
I have been here before, I have been here before

And my imagination isn't moving me here
Can't help workin' overtime
This kind of aggravation just seems perfectly designed
To keep me up at night
It keeps me up at night
It keeps me up at night, alright

So long, ambition, it's not a competition
I can't win anymore, I can't win anymore
An odd position that I got the suspicion
I have been here before, I have been here before
I have been here before, I have been here before
