All Along

She's got the Summer sewn into her satin dress
I've got my lips shut tight so I can hide the mess that I'll make of myself
She's got the scent of the ocean flowing through her hair
I've got these hands of mine that don't belong anywhere
When all they want is just to place it behind her ear
All I needed is somebody like her to stay
And if it kills me, I will find my way

All along, I've been meaning to move
All along, I've been waiting to want
All along, I've been taking my time
As my moment's come and gone
All along, all along

She's out there playing the field and I'm behind the stands
Insert some cliche here about scoring
Everything I need happens when she takes my hand
But if I don't move now, I'm gonna miss my chance
Can't let her run away with the pieces of me, no
Can't let her run away with what's left of my sanity

All along, I've been meaning to move
All along, I've been waiting to want
All along, I've been taking my time
As my moment's come and gone
All along

I don't mind when she takes up my time
I don't mind when she's on my mind
I don't mind when she takes up my days
'Cause all my time has gone to waste

All along, I've been meaning to move
All along, I've been waiting to want
All along, I've been taking my time
As my moment's come and gone
