Vindicated—Dashboard Confessional

 

Hope dangles on a string

Like slow spinning redemption

Winding in and winding out

The shine of it has caught my eye

 

And roped me in

So, mesmerizing and so hypnotizing,

I am captivated, I am

 

{Chorus}

Vindicated

I am selfish

I am wrong

I am right

I swear I'm right

Swear I knew it all along

And I am flawed, but I am cleaning up so well

I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself

 

So clear

Like the diamond in your ring

Cut to mirror your intention

Oversized and overwhelmed

The shine of which has caught my eye

And rendered me

So isolated,and so motivated

I am certain now that I am

 

{Chorus}

 

So turn

up the corners of your lips

Part them and feel my finger tips

Trace the moment, fall forever

 

Defence is paper thin

Just one touch and I'll be in

Too deep now to ever swim against the current

So let me slip away

So let me slip away

So let me slip away

So let me slip against the current

So let me slip away

So let me slip away

So let me slip away

So let me slip away

 

{Chorus}

Slight hope

dangles on a string

Like slow spinning redemption...
