Something That Will Last lyrics

Something That Will Last

CASEY
I am standing at the start
Of something that is new
I can't keep building walls
Despite what I've been through
If I may have found the someone
The one I should be looking for
I'd be a jerk to run away
So I'll hold my breath and stay

AARON
There's a person by my side
She's not who I had planned
Yet I feel the sudden urge
To reach out and take her hand
And I yearn for letting go of
All the baggage in my past
If I don't try, I'll never know
Just how far this thing might go

BOTH
We can make it to tomorrow
Or just end it all right here
We could fall flat on our faces
Or fall more in love each year

AARON
With so little to be sure of

CASEY
Possibilities are vast

BOTH
This may be one perfect moment
Or maybe this is something
That will last

CASEY [Spoken]
Well, this is my place

AARON [Spoken]
Ahh yes, so it is
Nice building
Excellent structural engineering
With the...

GABE [Spoken]
Quit stalling and tap that shit already!

AARON [Spoken]
...Columns and bricks

CASEY [Spoken]
Thank you, I designed it all myself

LAUREN [Spoken]
Okay, you're gonna give him
One quick kiss on the cheek
But that's it
V-town is closed to the public

ALLISON [Spoken]
You are so not ready
To take things to the
Next level with this girl
What you really need to do
Is continue waiting for me

EDGY ROCKER GUY [Spoken]
See the problem?
We would've already
Been on your bedroom floor by now

FRIENDLY THERAPIST [Spoken]
Blah, blah, blah
More therapy!

AARON [Spoken]
Alright, goodnight Casey

CASEY [Spoken]
Goodnight, Aaron

GABE [Spoken]
Dude, are you seriously walking away?
You know who hates you right now?
The entire male species!

AARON
We could make it to tomorrow
If I'd only take the chance

GABE [Spoken]
Yes, for the love of god
Take a chance!

CASEY
If we say goodbye forever
Would I miss some true romance?

LAUREN [Spoken]
It's a definite possibility

AARON
All the burdens that we carry

CASEY
Need to let them go, and fast

BOTH
So there's not one perfect moment
But rather there is something that will last

I am through with holding on
I won't let mistakes and memories
Get the best of me

Oh ooh whoa

Though my doubts are far from gone
I will leap into the future
And just wait and see

If we make it to tomorrow
If we stand the test of time
Or the wind's too strong against us
And we can't quite make the climb
All I know is in this moment
My past is just my past
Right now I can't help but wonder
If this could be the something that will last

CASEY
Could this be the something

AARON
Could this be the something

BOTH
That will last?
