Ask Yourself

This song is by Foster the People and appears on the album Supermodel (2014).

Original video
Well, I've tried to live like the way that you wanted me to
Never needed the proof, just followed the rules
Well, I pick up all the paces and move my feet as fast as I can
I'm always falling behind, just float in the lines
And you want more and ambition's taken its toll on you
Well, hey, your confidence is fading with your youth

If you say that dreamers always get what they desire
Well, I've found the more I want, the less I've got
Is this the life you've been waiting for?
Are you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more?

You're coughing blood again
I know 'cause I clean up the mess every now and then
Just fold the line along the seam
Force a smile and never say what you mean
You're in the promised land in someone else's dream
If you want more and you'll get there
Throw a quarter in the well
It's okay, you're fine, ambition's not a crime

If you say that dreamers always get what they desire
Well, I've found the more I want, the less I've got
Is this the life you've been waiting for?
Are you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more?
Well, ask yourself

Is this the life you've been waiting for?
Well, ask yourself
Is this the life you've been waiting for?
Well, ask yourself
Is this the life you've been waiting for?
Are you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more?
Well, ask yourself
Is this the life you've been waiting for?
Are you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more?
Well, ask yourself
