lyrics

i wanna take you away from this
wanna leave just you and me
forget the things i'm complacent with
think of the things i'll replace em with
i wanna give you a shootin star
make a wish for somewhere that's ours
baby don't lose faith in me
i swear to god just wait and see
oh i never wanted to be good so bad
i just want you to believe it
quit talkin and let you see it
oh i never wanna lose just what we have
it took some time for me to see
what is right in front of me

(Chorus)
i know you worry bout the things i do
and just what it is that i can give to you
so i'm in a hurry to make a change
take on the world and take the reins
before it all goes down in flames
let's keep the picture in the frame

i never want you to think of me
the way you have been recently
so not to lose what i got in you
i gotta do what i gotta do
this ain't the end
this is just the start
you know i love you with all my heart
and i know that you feel the same
so never go and i'll shield the rain
oh i never claimed to be a perfect man
but i know i could be better
concentrate on this instead of
all the lies that i tell myself are worth a damn
i may be blind but i can see
what is right in front of me

(Chorus)
i know you worry bout the things i do
and just what it is that i can give to you
so i'm in a hurry to make a change
take on the world and take the reins
before it all goes down in flames
let's keep the picture in the frame
(x2)

if i could learn how to walk
before tryin to fly
i'd prolly have an easier time
of climbin the sky
tryna get high
but doin nothin but just standin still
i think i'm movin up
when i'm just standin still
until i change a lot of my ways
and what i do with my days
i'm still gonna have this crowd of haze around me
so i'ma dance to it like it's the new craze
see what happens
at the end of this maze that's around me
or over me
man whatever it is
and damn whatever it is
that doesn't fit the plan
that i'm bettin it is
i'm better than this
it's time i prove that
throw this old sweaty mess away
and get a new hat
i've said it before
but this time i think it's for real
yo i can tell it by the way that it feels
so baby listen now
we can be the toast of the town
we can laugh about how we used to frown
stick around please

(Chorus)
i know you worry bout the things i do
and just what it is that i can give to you
so i'm in a hurry to make a change
take on the world and take the reins
before it all goes down in flames
let's keep the picture in the frame
