    Below is the Official lyrics from Genius for "Nobody Can Save Me," Talking To Myself," "Sorry For Now," "Halfway Right," "One More Light" and "Sharp Edges." Enjoy

    Nobody Can Save Me

    [Verse 1]
    I'm dancing with my demons
    I'm hanging off the edge
    Storm clouds gather beneath me
    Waves break above my head
    Headfirst hallucination

    [Pre-Chorus 1]
    I wanna fall wide awake now
    You tell me it's alright
    Tell me I'm forgiven, tonight

    [Chorus]
    But nobody can save me now
    I'm holding up a light
    I'm chasing out the darkness inside
    'Cause nobody can save me

    [Verse 2]
    Stared into this illusion
    For answers yet to come
    I chose a false solution
    But nobody proved me wrong
    Headfirst hallucination

    [Pre-Chorus 2]
    I wanna fall wide awake
    Watch the ground giving way now
    You tell me it's alright
    Tell me I'm forgiven, tonight

    [Chorus]
    But nobody can save me now
    I'm holding up a light
    I'm chasing out the darkness inside
    'Cause nobody can save me

    [Bridge]
    Been searching somewhere out there
    For what's been missing right here (I wanna fall wide awake now)
    I've been searching somewhere out there
    For what's been missing right here (I wanna fall wide awake now)
    I wanna fall wide awake now
    So tell me it's alright
    Tell me I'm forgiven, tonight

    [Outro]
    And only I can save me now
    I'm holding up a light
    Chasing out the darkness inside
    And I don't wanna let you down
    But only I can save me!

    Been searching somewhere out there
    For what's been missing right here


    Talking To Myself
    [Verse 1]
    Tell me what I've gotta do
    There's no getting through to you
    The lights are on but nobody's home (Nobody's home)
    You say I can't understand
    But you're not giving me a chance
    When you leave me, where do you go?(Where do you go?)

    [Pre-Chorus]
    All the walls that you keep building
    All this time that I spend chasing
    All the ways that I keep losing you

    [Chorus]
    The truth is, you turn into someone else
    You keep running like the sky is falling
    I can whisper, I can yell
    But I know, yeah I know, yeah I know
    I'm just talking to myself
    Talking to myself
    Talking to myself
    But I know, yeah I know, yeah I know
    I'm just talking to myself

    [Verse 2]
    I admit I made mistakes
    But yours might cost you everything
    Can't you hear me calling you home? (Calling you home)

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Oh, all the walls that you keep building
    All this time that I spent chasing
    All the ways that I keep losing you (losing you)

    [Chorus]
    The truth is, you turned into someone else
    You keep running like the sky is falling
    I can whisper, I can yell
    But I know, yeah I know, yeah I know
    I'm just talking to myself
    Talking to myself
    Talking to myself
    Yeah I know, yeah I know, yeah I know
    I'm just talking to myself

    [Pre-Chorus]
    All the walls that you keep building
    All this time that I spent chasing
    All the ways that I keep losing you

    [Chorus/Outro]
    The truth is, you turned into someone else
    You keep running like the sky is falling
    I can whisper, I can yell
    But I know, yeah I know, yeah I know
    I'm just talking to myself
    Talking to myself
    Talking to myself
    Yeah I know, yeah I know, yeah I know
    Talking to myself


    Sorry For Now
    [Verse 1: Mike Shinoda]
    Watching the wings cut through the clouds
    Watching the raindrops blinking red and white
    Thinking of you back on the ground
    There with a fire burning in your eyes
    I only halfway apologized

    [Chorus: Mike Shinoda]
    And I'll be sorry for now
    That I couldn't be around
    Sometimes things refuse
    To go the way we planned
    Oh I'll be sorry for now
    That I couldn't be around
    There will be a day
    That you will understand
    You will understand

    [Verse 2: Mike Shinoda]
    After a while you may forget
    But just in case the memories cross your mind
    You couldn't know this when I left
    Under the fire of your angry eyes
    I never wanted to say goodbye

    [Chorus: Mike Shinoda]
    So I'll be sorry for now
    That I couldn't be around
    Sometimes things refuse
    To go the way we planned
    Oh I'll be sorry for now
    That I couldn't be around
    There will be a day
    That you will understand
    You will understand

    [Bridge: Chester]
    Yeah, stop telling 'em to pump the bass up
    Tried to call home but nobody could wait up
    Switch your time zones can't pick the pace up
    I just passed out by the time you wake up
    Best things come to those who wait
    And it's bound to get rough on any road you take
    But don't you ever have a doubt and make no mistake
    I can't wait to come back when I'm going away

    [Outro: Mike & (Chester)]
    So I'll be sorry for now
    That I couldn't be around
    There are things we have to do that we can't stand
    Oh I'll be sorry for now
    That I couldn't be around
    There will be a day that you will understand
    Oh I'll be sorry for now
    That I couldn't be around
    There are things we have to do that we can't stand
    (Things we have to do that we can't stand)
    Oh I'll be sorry for now
    That I couldn't be around
    There will be a day that you will understand
    You will understand (x3)


    Halfway Right
    [Verse 1]
    I scream at myself when there's nobody else to fight
    I don't lose, I don't win, if I'm wrong, then I'm halfway right
    Used to get high with the dead end kids
    Abandoned houses where the shadows lived
    I never been higher than I was that night
    I woke up driving my car
    I couldn't see then what I see right now
    The road dissolving like an empty vow
    Couldn't remember where I'd been that night
    I knew I took it too far

    [Pre-Chorus]
    All you said to do was slow down
    I remember, now I remember
    All you said to do was slow down
    But I was already gone

    [Chorus]
    I scream at myself when there's nobody else to fight
    I don't lose, I don't win, if I'm wrong, then I'm halfway right
    I know what I want, but it feels like I'm paralyzed
    I don't lose, I don't win, if I'm wrong, then I'm halfway right (halfway right)

    [Verse 2]
    Told me "Kid, you're going way to fast
    You burn too bright, you know you'll never last"
    It was bullshit then, I guess it makes sense now
    I woke up driving my car
    Said I'd lose you if I lost control
    I just laughed because what do they know?
    Here I am, standing all alone
    Because I took it too far

    [Pre-Chorus]
    All you said to do was slow down
    I remember, now I remember
    All you said to do was slow down
    But I was already gone

    [Chorus]
    I scream at myself when there's nobody else to fight
    I don't lose, I don't win, if I'm wrong, then I'm halfway right
    I know what I want, but it feels like I'm paralyzed
    I don't lose, I don't win, if I'm wrong, then I'm halfway right , halfway right

    [Bridge]
    Na na na na na na na na
    Nana nana, na nana nana
    Na na na na na na na na
    But I was already gone

    [Outro]
    I scream at myself when there's nobody else to fight
    I don't lose, I don't win, if I'm wrong, then I'm halfway right
    Na na na na na na na na
    Nana nana, na nana nana
    Na na na na na na na na
    But I was already gone
    I scream at myself when there's nobody else to fight
    I don't lose, I don't win, if I'm wrong, then I'm halfway right


    One More Light
    [Verse 1]
    Should've stayed, were there signs, I ignored?
    Can I help you, not to hurt, anymore?
    We saw brilliance, when the world, was asleep
    There are things that we can have, but can't keep

    [Chorus]
    If they say
    Who cares if one more light goes out?
    In a sky of a million stars
    It flickers, flickers
    Who cares when someone's time runs out?
    If a moment is all we are
    We're quicker, quicker
    Who cares if one more light goes out?
    Well I do

    [Verse 2 ]
    The reminders, pull the floor from your feet
    In the kitchen, one more chair than you need, oh
    And you're angry, and you should be, it's not fair
    Just 'cause you can't see it, doesn't mean it, isn't there

    [Chorus]
    If they say
    Who cares if one more light goes out?
    In a sky of a million stars
    It flickers, flickers
    Who cares when someone's time runs out?
    If a moment is all we are
    We're quicker, quicker
    Who cares if one more light goes out?
    Well I do

    [Instrumental + Bridge]
    (I do)

    [Chorus/Outro]
    Who cares if one more light goes out?
    In a sky of a million stars
    It flickers, flickers
    Who cares when someone's time runs out?
    If a moment is all we are
    We're quicker, quicker
    Who cares if one more light goes out?
    Well I do
    Well I do


    Sharp Edges
    [Verse 1]
    Mama always told me don't you run
    "Don't you run with scissors, son
    You're gonna hurt someone"
    Mama told me look before you leap
    Always think before you speak, and watch the friends you keep

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Stay along the beaten path, never listened when she said

    [Chorus]
    Sharp edges have consequences, I
    Guess that I had to find out for myself
    Sharp edges have consequences, now
    Every scar is a story I can tell

    [Verse 2]
    Should've played it safer from the start
    Loved you like a house of cards
    Let it fall apart
    But all the things I couldn't understand
    Never could've planned
    They made me who I am
    Put your nose in paperbacks
    Instead of smoking cigarettes
    These are years you're never getting back

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Stay along the beaten path, never listened when she said

    [Chorus]
    Sharp edges have consequences, I
    Guess that I had to find out for myself
    Sharp edges have consequences, now
    Every scar is a story I can tell

    [Bridge]
    We all fall down
    We live somehow
    We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger
    We all fall down
    We live somehow
    We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger
    Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh

    Stay along the beaten path, never listened when she said

    [Chorus]
    Sharp edges have consequences, I
    Guess that I had to find out for myself
    Sharp edges have consequences, now
    Every scar is a story I can tell

    [Outro]
    We all fall down
    We live somehow
    We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger
    We all fall down
    We live somehow
    We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger
    Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh

    I believe it's "wings," as in he's looking out the window of a plane, thinking of his family back on the ground.

    I think on OML, it is "Who cares if someone's time runs out if a moment is all we are? Or quicker, quicker." as in we are only here for a moment or even less than that.

    That could be it.

    As an aside, the entire line just feels shoehorned in.
