I've spent more than enough time convincing the world I'd be fine, but there was always an exit strategy. Plan B failed, so what do I do now?

I can't seem to find a good way out this time, a way out of this fate.
Nothing left to try, I'm giving in this time, not planning my escape.

We both knew that failure was never an option but settling might take its place. Well if settling is failure, then in failure I've found happiness, so why do I still feel like such a disgrace? The warrior inside me won't give up this fight, but the human in me says it's time to throw in the towel I've found something satisfying. What the hell more was I trying to find on this long ride home?

All this talk of home is nothing, my pride's about the same. I'm out of faith, I'm out of options, and I've just myself to blame. I tried so hard to find the upsides to this mundane life of mine, but next time someone stops the music, I swear I'll lose my mind. But I'll still say I'm fine.

I can't die alone, each day by day my lonely bed gets colder. I would drop it all for someone else to hold as I get older.

I'm waiting for someone to cling to me.
I'm waiting for someone to stay with me.

I can't seem to find a good way out this time, a way out of this fate.
I just need a guide to tell me I'll be fine, to tell me I'm okay.

Well if everyone has someone then why can't I seem to find a perfect soul to call me on my bullshit, take me by surprise, and change my mind? I feel my interest waning, patience growing thin. It's like I've had the skills and all the tools, but lacked the will to win.

Save me, I'm running out of time.
But I'll still say I'm fine.
