lyrics

V1:
It takes a second to rob a moment of its entire structure
One wrong step unaccompanied by the useful others
With out one’s balance, the world’s a stumbling, mumbling drunk
With one last shot from a loaded kiss
To make everything right
 
C:
Count to sixty, that’s all it takes me
I dream of a perfect ending
With you and me, perfectly
And I’m just how you want me
You pick me up, I fall back down
My mind keeps spinning round and round
And if I know anything to be true
I acted a second too soon
 
V2:
Learning to walk, to accept defeat, I’m always wanting more
You are everything that I’ve dreamed of and never had before
It takes four seconds to save the world,
But only one to break it down
Help me make this last one count, you’ve gotta let me try.

C:
Count to sixty, that’s all it takes me
I dream of a perfect ending
With you and me, perfectly
And I’m just how you want me
You pick me up, I fall back down
My mind keeps spinning round and round
And if I know anything to be true
I acted a second too soon
 
B: Like a tiger, full of pride
I only want you by my side
A look into my heart shows without you I would die
Through all the cuts and ruts and takes
I try to learn through my mistakes
Instead of reviewing play-by-play, lets runaway
As long as I’m with you I’m A-OK.

C:
Count to sixty, that’s all it takes me
I dream of a perfect ending
With you and me, perfectly
And I’m just how you want me
You pick me up, I fall back down
My mind keeps spinning round and round
And if I know anything to be true
I acted a second too soon
