On & On (Under Red Lights)

We just passed the city lights like the night life was nothing at all.
We don’t want to be entertained, we simply need love.
I wish I had the courage to do & say as I feel without taking this sip of Corona.
Fill my cup with something other than alcohol.

Red light, green light.
I’m used to waiting my turn, but you shouldn’t have to wait.
Before I go, you should know.

And we’ll go, on & on.
On & on, past life as we knew.
On & on, to something new, something more.
We keep moving towards something we can call our own.

I’m sorry I’m so selfish.
Can I let you in on a little secret?
It took some time, but I think I’ve fallen for you in the worst way.
And your silence only makes me want to speak up.
I’m tired of running & drowning myself in distractions that only give me temporary satisfaction.
I’ve had my fun & I’ve tried my hand at loving anyone that came my way.
Being physical leaves me emotional after the fact, call it a delayed reaction.

I want it all, something I can feel deeper than skin deep, I wouldn’t mind if you stayed too long.
So I took the fall, I said my piece & jotted it all down, so you wouldn’t forget it.
No, I don’t regret it, don’t forget it.

And we’ll go, on & on.
On & on, past life as we knew.
On & on, to something new, something more.
We keep moving towards something we can call our own.

So here I am, sitting under a red light with no intention of stopping.
I wish you’d come & find me.
Read me my rights, lock me away, I know I’m not innocent, I’m jaded as can be.
But with you I can’t help but to be kind & unwind.
So take your time, cus I took mine.
I know that you’ll come find me when the moment’s right.
