lyrics

Personal Anthem

It's close to closing time
And I haven't made up my mind
To what I want from life

It's gonna be a while, be another hour
To play this game of "seek and you shall find"

And I get the feeling that I am not alone
Though I'm feeling low
On this road less travelled
And I get the feeling that I am on my own
But just like you said, it's my personal anthem

Numbers figures, prolific dreamers
Been keeping me up all night
I know I don't play the games well,
I let everyone down
But can you count backwards with me now, what's with me now

And I get the feeling that I am not alone
Though I'm feeling low
On this road less travelled
And I get the feeling that I am on my own
But just like you said, it's my personal anthem

I've been swimming in my ocean
Of words and arguments
These philosophers have failed me, so far
But can I stand on your shoulders, made of legends and giants
For all I know is when my times i up, I'll be so much better than I am now
So don't give up on me

No, don't give up on me
No, no, don't, don't give up on me
No, don't give up on me
