You can have the world
If the world is what you need.
Take me round in circles.
I'll follow where you lead.
Go anywhere
If it's where you wanna go.
It used to be for something
But lately I don't know.

"Take me far away",
All the people say.
You're the price I pay,
Blame me.
Leave you far behind,
Search until I find.
I could lose my mind,
Shame me,
Tame me.
I'll play the game,
No matter what they say.
Holding on to pieces,
I'll follow anyway
Be anyone.
If it's who you wanna be
Someday soon my day will come
And you can set me free.

Stand up and give me a reason,
I can't go on livin' a lie.
You're hiding behind so many faces.
It's more than I need to get by.
Stand up and give me a reason.
You don't even ask me to stay.
You think I'll be back here tomorrow,
But you've seen me for the last time today.
