OneRepublic Stop & Stare Lyrics

Last updated: 03/11/2013 04:06:27 PM

This town is colder now, I think it's sick of us
It's time to make our move, I'm shaking off the rust
I've got my heart set on anywhere but here
I'm staring down myself, counting up the years
Steady hands, just take the wheel...
And every glance is killing me
Time to make one last appeal... for the life I lead

Stop and stare
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I've become what I can't be, oh
Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you're here not there
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
But fair ain't what you really need
Oh, can you see what I see

They're trying to come back, all my senses push
Untie the weight bags, I never thought I could...
Steady feet, don't fail me now
Imma run till you can't walk
Something pulls my focus out
And I'm standing down...

Stop and stare
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I've become what I can't be, oh
Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you're here not there
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
But fair ain't what you really need
Oh, you don't need

What you need, what you need...

Stop and stare
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I've become what I can't be
Oh, do you see what I see...

Amazing | Reviewer: ANONYMOUS | 3/10/13

This song really represents the meaning of believing in god and showing how changing yourself is vital. He gets lost in the change of the world, and he became what he didn't want to be.

Hey onerepublic, your lyrics were the perfect tool to your video and its' intentions, and your presentation of yourself and your band definitely included the abilities in full view to the world to travel in time on the spot which shows you are all Technicians by nature. Please, do not give up. Every peice of your Video was and is relevant to 21 12 2012. Time may be getting tired of us and that grace period believe me is still there, for the innocent.They all will get through through the help of your group and many others. I work in a bar. Social interaction right there and the members? The raporrt is quality.

really amazing | Reviewer: Firdavs | 6/30/10

while listening this song i feel like my life is flowing as a river with this song nd it makes me look back to the thigs I've done... Sometimes this song seems axactly like my life... bellive it's unexplainable...

besttt song. | Reviewer: bobby | 5/9/10

i absolutely love this song, even though its like three years old now. But it speaks to me. People always think of changing the world, but they never think of changing themselves. i think people should take a step back and look at what they can do. This song is great inspiration.

this song may not be considered Christian but it ministers to me alot. it does because it talks about how our generation just stands still and doesnt really move(meaning speak out and say what you think). we just tend to stand and watch. thank you onerepublic!!
