If I Am Submit Correct Lyrics

So you're standin' on the ledge
It looks like you might fall
Its so far down
Or maybe you were thinkin' about jumpin'

Now you could have it all
If you learned a little patience
For though I cannot fly
I'm not content to crawl

So give me a little credit
Have in me a little faith
I wanna be with you forever
If tomorrow's not too late

But it's always too late
When you got nothing, to you say
You should never let the sun set on tomorrow
Before the sun rises today

If I am, another waste of everythin'
You dreamed of, I will let you down
If I am, only here to watch you
As you suffer, I will let you down

So you're walkin' on the edge
And you wait your turn to fall
But you're so far gone
That you don't see the hands upheld to catch you

And you could find the fault
In' the heart that you've been handed
For though you cannot fly
You're not content to crawl

And it's always too late
When you got nothin, so you say
But we should never let the sun set on tomorrow
Before the sun rises

If I am, another waste of everythin'
You hoped for, I will let you down
If I am, only here to watch you
As you suffer, I will let you down

So you're standin' on the ledge
It looks like you might fall

If I am, another waste of everythin'
You dreamed of, I will let you down
If I am, only here to watch you
As you suffer, I will let you down

The answers we find
Are never what we had in mind
So we make it up
As we go along

You don't talk of dreams
When I won't mention tomorrow
And we won't make
Those promises we can't keep

I will never leave you
I will not let you down
I will never leave you
I will not let you down
