A chill song to make you happy.

lyrics

Sitting in my car, waiting for the rain to stop
though I’m soaking wet.
I’m fine watching the leaves laugh.
If I don’t move, maybe they won’t see me.
I’ll melt into the rain
somewhere in New York, Tennessee or Maine.

I’m taking a time out
to regroup with my dreams,
taking a vacation from the bright lights
and everything that they mean
I’m taking a time out for me.

I’m exploring the space between
second hand ticks and minute hand tocks.
And somewhere in there our eyes locked.
I’ve come with you this far
now I’ve got the key, need to start the car.

I’m taking a time out
to regroup with my dreams,
taking a vacation from the bright lights
and everything that they mean
I’m taking a time out.

Nothing’s making me want to leave
nothing’s making me stay.
I’ve got the voice to make the choice
and it’ll be okay.

Oh the things I find when I’m not looking,
and they trick me (though not against my will)
to sit here while the rain passes,
perfectly still.

I’m taking a time out
to regroup with my dreams,
taking a vacation from the bright lights
and everything that they mean
I’m taking a time out for me.
Let’s take a time out
to regroup with our dreams,
take a vacation from the bright lights
and everything they mean
I’m taking a time out for you and me.
A time out for me.

Sitting my car waiting for the rain to stop.
