lyrics

living for the present
rushing to the end
try to make it pleasant
dying to pretend

i would wait for you
but you, you quit on me

i, i can feel your gaze on my face
ah, is this real? this obstacle race

scribbles on the pavement
vanish in the rain
secrets in your basement
never see the light of day

well, i would wait for you
but you, you quit on me

i, i can feel your gaze on my face
ah, is this real? this obstacle race
i, i can feel your gaze on my face
ah, is this real? this obstacle race
