Ask Yourself Lyrics

by Foster The People

Well I've tried to live like the way that you wanted me to.
Never needed the proof, just followed the rules.
Well, I pick up all the pieces and I move my feet as fast as I can.
I'm always falling behind, just float in the lines.
You want more and ambition's taken its toll on you.
Well hey your confidence is fading with your youth.

And you say that dreamers always get what they desire.
Well I've found, the more I want the less I've got.
Is this the life you've been waiting for?
Or are you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more?

You're coughing blood again.
I know cause I clean up the mess every now and then.
Fold the line along the seam.
Force a smile and never say what you mean.
You're in the promised land in someone else's dream.
If you want more and you'll get there.
Throw a quarter in the well.
Well, it's okay, you're fine, ambition's not a crime.

And you say that dreamers always get what they desire.
Well I've found, the more I want the less I've got.
Is this the life you've been waiting for.
Or are you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more?
Well ask yourself.

Is this the life you've been waiting for, well ask yourself.
Is this the life you've been waiting for, Well ask yourself.
Is this the life you've been waiting for, you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more. Well ask yourself.
Is this the life you've been waiting for, you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more. Well ask yourself.
