Waiting Outside The Lines - Hold On ‘Til the Night

You’ll never enjoy your life,
Living inside the box
So afraid of taking chances
How you gonna reach the top?
Rules and regulations
Force you to play it safe
Get rid of all the hesitation
It’s time for you to seize the day

Instead of just sitting around
Looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground
The time is now

I’m waiting (waiting)
Waiting (waiting)
Just waiting (waiting)
I’m waiting
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

Try to have no regrets
Even if it’s just a night
How you gonna walk ahead
If you keep living blind

Stuck in that same position,
You deserve so much more
There’s a whole world around us
Just waiting to be explored

Instead of just sitting around
Looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground
The time is now just let it go

Don’t wanna have to force you to smile
I’m here to help you notice the rainbow
‘Cause I know what’s in you is out there

I’m waiting (waiting)
Waiting (waiting)
Just waiting (waiting)
I’m waiting
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

I’m tryna be patient
First step is the hardest
I know you can make it
Go ahead and take it

I’m waiting
Waiting
Just waiting
I’m waiting
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

You’ll never enjoy your life
Living inside the box
So afraid of taking chances,
How you gonna reach the top
