Listless, I'm standing out on broadway, wishing on the stars to guide me back
To when I knew how to love and give back
Always told Myself I wanted, more than superficial things, but now-
I just want some likes and someone to scratch
my back, but she won't text back.
And I'm tearing up my posters swearing this will be the last time,
wishing on a star that never answers back
I never slept sound those nights

Sometimes I think its me and myself,
destined to parade across these roads, but my Dad tells me I can come home...
Its good to know I'm guarded but walls I build just keep out all the love I want from you; I refuse to give up
I'll save,
my best for you;
Just like when we both were kids and talked about our dreams,
like we had nothing standing in our fated ways,
I think I slept sound those nights

Thinking now its time to let go
Not stuck thinking of old times
But I need a compass showing me the way
The way towards you,
towards the light;
the way towards you,
towards the light

Listless, standing out on Broadway, wishing on the stars to guide me back, to when I knew how to love and give back.
