Buying Time (Great Big Sea)

I stayed awake for hours again last night,
Searching for a reason to keep up the fight;
I've made choices I don't regret,
I've got problems I don't get.

I didn't want to carry the heavier load,
You can't always take the middle road;
There comes a time when you make up your mind,
And the point gets left behind.

Oh, let's wait one more day for the conversation,
One more day to make it right;
Let's get away from the confrontation,
One more day just buying time.

For years and years you can drift alone,
And write another verse to an endless song;
Wait one more day till the time is right,
Hoping that you both see the light.

You won't see the light!

Oh, let's wait one more day for the conversation,
One more day to make it right;
Let's get away from the confrontation,
One more day just buying time.

I'm not afraid to sleep alone,
I'm not afraid to be alone.

Stayed awake for hours again last night,
Just searching for a reason to keep up the fight;
I've made choices I don't regret,
But I've got problems and problems,
And problems and problems and problems....

Oh, let's wait one more day for the conversation,
One more day to make it right;
Let's get away from the confrontation,
One more day just buying time.
Just buying time... Just buying time...
