"you can never be old and wise if you've never been young and crazy"

Tell me once again that you love me to death and should I die,
you swear you will come for me.
As I fade away just reach out your arms and don't let me go.
Because I realize your laugh is the best sound I've heard,
and I like the way I can't keep my focus when I'm around you.
I watch you talk,
but you don't notice,
all you see is her.
I hear every word,
but all I can think about is how we should be together.
So that every time you shine,
I shine.
But I can't tell you what I want to say.
You'll have to wait,
and stay strong,
because you know I believe in you.
I make mistakes.
But I'm in no hurry to grow up,
'cause none of them understand me.
But it's alright when you're here with me.
I'll be just fine,
if you stay here with me,
And these words will live forever.
Convince you to stay.
They'll know it's your song,
if you just stay with me
You can watch the stars come out,
and then the moon way up high.
I've been waiting and waiting,
but nothings changing.
I'll wait by the ocean,
as every wave brings me out to sea.
As hours change to minutes,
I'll be counting down,
'till the clock strikes zero,
and you come save me.
Then leave me in the dark.
You'll pick me up like extra change that's been out in the rain.
You give me a reason.
To believe.
To make me think I'm not just extra change.
A week goes past,
and the times been racin.
I've been broken and used,
and I can feel it.
I'm still breathing.
But this feeling I've got tells me something now,
I've done all I can to make you stay.
I gave all I've got.
But now I'm standin' here on my own.
I'm breathing.
But one thing keeps playing in my mind,
like a broken record.
Is it too late to say,
were perfect?<3

First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do

This sounds like a mixture of Jump Then Fall by Taylor Swift, Take This To Heart by Mayday Parade, You Be The Anchor That Keeps My Feet On The Ground, I'll Be The Wings That Keep Your Heart In The Clouds by Mayday Parade, Tied Together With A Smile by Taylor Swift, and I’m Still Breathing by Katy Perry. Not very original if I do say so myself.
