WHERE YOU WANT TO BE

Hey there stranger
Do you remember?
You were a part of my life
Early December
Think I remember?
Sentiment cuts like a knife
The seasons are changing
Life's re-arranging
Full of good times
Would have beens
It's all your fault
And where've you been
And how time goes
And I don't even know
How to fill in the spaces
And the love you've erased
In my life

Are you where you wanted to be?
Did you get there easily?
Did I make you sacrifice?
Did you make a sharp left
When you should have turned right?
Are you where you wanted to be?
Did you sell off all your gold?
Did you trade it in?
Did you wait for love
Or settle for somebody to hold?

And barely symphonic
But strangely ironic
Moments contained in one glance
Oh how I adored you
But now I'm ignored by you
Nowhere a tint of romance
And now it's vaguely familiar
I think I remember
Sharing every single intimacy
It doesn't seem so strange to me
That we barely entertained
Even the politest of phrases
But sometimes at night
I conjure you up in my mind

Are you where you wanted to be?
Did you get there easily?
Did I make you sacrifice?
Did you make a sharp left
When you should have turned right?
Are you where you wanted to be?
Did you sell off all your gold?
Did you trade it in?
Did you wait for love
Or settle for somebody to hold?

While I was busy
Perfecting the art
Of deflecting compliments
I took it too far
And let her rip one right through my heart
Of battle stations we're building
You and I just grew apart
We grew apart

While I decided
To make everyone else happy
I just put aside
My foolish pride
I guess I denied
My own desire
I was too busy pleasing
Everybody please
I forgot how to breathe
Or question anything
Or ask why?
Am I?

Am I where I wanted to be?
Did I get here easily?
Did I make a sacrifice?
Did I take a sharp left
When I should have turned right?
Am I where I wanted to be?
Can I sell off all my gold?
Can I trade it in?
Will I wait for love
Or settle for somebody to hold?

I'd settle for somebody to hold now
You know that I will never let you down
Up and spun around
I'd do it all again
If I could just have somebody to hold now
Just need somebody to hold now
Could somebody hold me now?
Just want somebody to hold me now
I'd do it all again
