Ever The Optimist - Lyrics

I spent my whole life in this town
just trying to get out
I've always dreamt of leaving
and I got sick of waiting
so I packed my bags and I made my way
to those big bright city lights
I haven't been here for too long
But it's just not good enough
there's something better up there
I know I have to find it
So I'll run again leaving everything
far behind, I hope this works out in the end

I found myself looking on
Ignoring what's around me
without my friends surrounding
So concern With all that I could be
Not hearing when they told me
you gotta listen to your heart beat
when there's nothing left to find

Mile after mile
I put my life into this right
I'm getting further, but I'm still not satisfied
cause everytime I'm stopping,
you have a story to tell but something I missed
It makes it hard to leave again

I found myself looking on
Ignoring what's around me
without my friends surrounding

So concern with all that I could be
Not hearing when they told me
you gotta listen to your heart beat
when there's nothing left to find

I need to stop and think
It's getting hard to breath
Can't even fall asleep anymore
I need a moment pieced
So I can be at ease
and try to enjoy anything
I haven't spent a second, seeking, enjoying what I have
being anything

I found myself looking on
Ignoring what's around me
without my friends surrounding
So concern with all that I could be
Not hearing what they said
you gotta listen to your heart beat
when there's nothing left to find
I found myself looking on
Ignoring what's around me
without my friends surrounding
So concern with all that I could be
Not hearing when they told me
you gotta listen to your heart beat
when there's nothing left to find
