I take myself from the bottom shelf
And I reel my troubles in
And I put them up on a higher hill
To a place I've never been

And I'll wait for you if you want me to
Am I just wasting my time?
And I'll wait for you if you ask me to
Am I just losing my mind?

And I'm always hanging on
And I'm always closing doors
And I'm always saying no
No, when I really really want it all
When I really really want it all
When I really really want it all
When I really really want you

And I'll take myself from the bottom shelf
And I'm on the street again
But it's the newer town, and the rain come down
In a place I?ve never been

And I play for you if you ask me to
Am I just wasting my time?
Yeah I play for you if you want me to
Am I just losing my mind?

'Cause I'm always hanging on
And I'm always closing doors
And I'm always saying no
When I really really want it all
When I really really want you

When I really really want it all
I really really really want
Yeah I really really want it all
When I really really wanted you

I take myself from the bottom shelf
And I reel my troubles in
And I put them up on a higher hill
To a place I've never been

And I'll play for you if you want me to
I just wasting my time?
And I'll play for you if you ask me to
Am I just losing my mind?

Am I just losing my mind?
Am I just losing my mind?
Am I just losing?
