Think I'm crawling out of my skin
Or maybe I'm finally settling back in
Completely foreign and absolutely right
Full moon lit up my dreams last night.

Out of control and not wanting to stop
Getting higher but not quite reaching the top
Feels so unfamiliar but not at all untrue
Not sure if I'll ever recognize the clues.

Awakened with the hope of something more
Dressed in the clothes that happiness wore
But somehow they still didn't fit just right
Got off the ground but never took flight

No patience for a transition to come along
I'm taking that walk and it won't be long
You cannot come with me for this trip home
I understand now I have to take it alone.

Time inches me up against this wall
Summer burns more quickly toward fall
Feels perilously close to disaster
Got limited seasons to find my answer

If you could understand the words to the song
And face the fears we've both had all along
I've faced them all and I'm finally graduating
You've got to let go; stop make me waiting.
