Sleeping With Giants (lifetime) Submit Correct Lyrics

I've noticed, people, they all have moments
Different, yet all the same
I fumble through every word that is spoken
And I barely knew your name

I'm tongue-tied, it runs through my blood and my insides
Some things we can't escape
But if we try, if we try
We can leave this behind

It's been a lifetime, a lifetime we've waited for
A simple question, kid, "Are you with me or not at all?"

Your eyes wide, you're always ahead of the curve tide
Quite and confident
Oh, we stood there, awkward and youthful, we tangled
A piece of my soul escaped

Oh, we are restless and tired, sleeping with giants
A model make out with the egos of fire

And it seems like it's been a lifetime, a lifetime we've waited for
A simple question, kid, "Are you with me or not at all?"
Well, are we wasting time or is it wasting us?
It's been a lifetime waiting for now, now

Well, you've got to find a way, you've got to find a way
You've got to find a way, you've got to find a way
You've got to find a way before you fold in

It's been a lifetime, a lifetime I've waiting for
A simple question, kid, "Are you with me or not at all?"

It's been a lifetime, a lifetime we waited for
I need an answer, kid, you're either with me or not at all, no, no
Are we wasting time or is it wasting us?
It's been a lifetime, a lifetime, a lifetime, lifetime, yeah

Well, you've got to find a way, you've got to find a way
You've got to find a way, you've got to find a way
Said you've got to find a way, you've got to find a way
You've got to find a way before you fold in
