about

About getting off the emotional roller coaster of too much entertainment and pursuing the greater life that God offers.

lyrics

Departure
by Jeremy Peyton, copyright 2012

Leave me alone for a while. I need some time to think.
I can’t remember which thoughts are mine or those you told me.
And as much as I’m entertained, I’m still hopelessly bored.
If I’m to ever do anything, I’ve got to break away.

Chorus
(This is) What I’ve been waiting for
(But still) I am stuck to my floor
(Trading) All my hopes and all my dreams
(Waking) I wanna be left alone for a while

Won’t you break my heart? I’ve loved too many things.
I wanted happiness and safety, but that’s all been a lie.
Be my direction. I wasn’t going anywhere anyway.
And take my emotions. They just lead me astray.
(chorus)

Is this remote in my hand so much different than
A needle in my arm or pills to make me numb?
And there’s nothing sadder than being given a second chance
And using it to stay right where I am.
I’d change the world if I could only get out of bed.
(verse 1)

Chorus
(This is) What I’ve been waiting for
(But still) I am stuck to my floor
(Trading) All my hopes and all my dreams
(Waking) I wanna be left alone for a while
(This is) This is what I’ve been waiting for
(I feel) Life can be so much more
(I see) I’m worth more than I ever dreamed
(Leaving) It’s time to let go of me
And I wanna be left alone for a while
