This town ain’t doin it for me
As I weep beneath the willow tree
I thought how could this come to be
When you’re the only one I see

And now I sit here and ponder so
About the things that I don’t know
And wonder what our time would show
With the moments shared so long ago

It’s too noisy these days
I’m at the point where I don’t want to listen
Seems everybody’s got something to say
Leave me alone please
I don’t want to hear your chatter anymore
I wish I had a remote so I could mute you all

I’m sorry for the heartache
And I’m sorry for the lies
I know it’s just a word
But it hurts the more time flies

I spotted you alone across the crowded room
With the feelings I thought I would never consume
Who knew that I’d gamble and come out on top
That my mind would cease spinning, and that time would just stop

Grab a camera, we can make it a movie
And watch it in the evening with no sound on
See the way the light flares of Amber on your skin?
As radiant as your energy, captured on Kodachrome
Oh how I feel warmth as I delight in your image
And all time stands still as this memory projects
I don’t need sound to hear your laugh again
Because in my heart I feel it, it plucks my heartstrings so

Patience is a virtue, it's one that I've thought through
The feeling when we're together is something oh so new

I feel it in the morning, when obstacles lay clear
And the hope that has been planted, gets me passed my fear

Tomorrow is uncertain, but that’s alright with me
Cuz being here with you is all I really need

Patience is a virtue, this I know is true
But how can I be patient when all I want is you?

They say if you can’t be with the one you love
Then you should love the one you’re with
But the problem is I haven’t loved myself at all
Ever since the moment I lost you
