    II. Lyrics:


    Where you going? It's hard to keep up

    You're moving so fast leaving me behind

    Gimme an hour, that's all I need

    It's now or never, I'm running out of time



    The seconds are relentless, I'm helpless as they keep flying by

    Stuck here in the desert, I feel like I'm in an hourglass

    Maybe I can stay and be comfortable living in the past

    But I don't wanna be alone so can you take me to you now



    Too fast, I try to follow but I'm losing hope

    We used to walk together down this winding road

    But you're so far ahead, it seems impossible to catch up



    And now I'm walking on my way, all alone, I'm feeling so cold

    Not getting anywhere, I feel like I'm in slow mode



    Used to be a winner, everything was all black and white

    Now I'm bottom of the pile, a dusty photo



    I'm afraid I'm gonna be left stranded by myself

    All the foolish dreams I had inside of me are broken



    Everything I wanted in the distance out of reach

    Am I the only one that's gon' stay here forgotten, ey



    So many thoughts are inside of my head

    I'm always drying these tears on my face

    How could I ever get used to the fact that

    The songs and the lyrics, they all sound the same



    "Come on, I know you can do it," I have to repeat it again and again, yeah

    I wanna look in the mirror, telling myself that I did a good job, ey



    Everyone gonna be watching, I gotta show 'em all of me

    But I've been insecure lately, 'cause I don't know what they want from me, ey

    Feeling so nervous, I wanna go forward but everyone else overtaking me

    Blocking my vision, my body is shaking, I don't know if I can keep up, yeah, yeah



    Too fast, I try to follow but I'm losing hope

    We used to walk together down this winding road

    But you're so far ahead, it seems impossible to catch up



    And now I'm walking on my way, all alone, I'm feeling so cold

    Not getting anywhere, I feel like I'm in slow mode



    Used to be a winner, everything was all black and white

    Now I'm bottom of the pile, a dusty photo



    I'm afraid I'm gonna be left stranded by myself

    All the foolish dreams I had inside of me are broken



    Everything I wanted in the distance out of reach

    Am I the only one that's gon' stay here forgotten, ey
