Little Too Far

Maybe this time, I drew this line a little too far
I made my mind, 'cause you tried to change mine a
little too hard

I hope they like me
I hope they care
I hope they scream and throw their hands into the air
(ahhhh!!)

I hope its likely
That they learn
I hope they show me the respect I think I've earned

I wonder nightly
If they heard
That I ran and travelled halfway round the world
(I travelled halfway round the world)

I'm walking lightly
As I'm unsure
If I'll ever truly get what I deserve

Maybe this time, I drew this line a little too far
I made my mind, 'cause you tried to change mine a
little too hard

I hope they get it
And understand
What I proved to do to get the upper hand

I left a message
Did you hear?
'Cause for the record, I've been sending this for years

Will they accept it?
Or pass it by?
Or will I spoon feed every bastard's passive mind?

I'm not against it
In ticking times
When second best and all the rest get left behind

Maybe this time, I drew this line a little too far
I made my mind, 'cause you tried to change mine a
little too hard
(x2)

I used to think the lights were bright (these lights)
I thought they'd shine until its over (over!!!)
I used to think I'd like this life (this life)
Until I got a little closer (closer!!!)
(x2)

Now I could back down
But I'm too damn proud
(x4)

Maybe this time, I drew this line a little too far
I made my mind, 'cause you tried to change mine a
little too hard
(x2)

Maybe this time
I took it a little too far
Maybe I, hey
Oh no, no, no, no
This time

Maybe this time
I took it a little too far
Maybe this time
I took it a little too far...
