But did you know?
I hold my breath through every tunnel,
and wish I could get over this feeling of slipping under.
But I never get that far.
Everything’s so uncertain.
Can’t find the right direction.
You look in the mirror and tell me you see clear.
I lie, say I can see me, but I can’t get past this feeling.
I’d talk, but no one listens.
Can’t make my own decisions.
I made promises that I can’t keep.
I fell asleep.
I was the one who locked the door.
I lost the key.
You told me lies straight to my face,
but I guess that’s fate.
I said, “everything is fine with me.”
I lied through my teeth.
I’ve lost all of my self respect.
I’m such a wreck
I’m running out of air to breathe.
I think it’s time for me to leave my friends all behind.
Watch me hurt, or are you blind?
I think it’s sad you’ll never know.
My true feelings will never show.
I wanna die with you
once or twice.
think i’m hopeless, i think i think too much
bruised and broken, covered up with blush
Our hands only shake when we cross state lines.
I’ve made hundreds of mistakes
And peace with dying in my sleep
But that’s what’s right for me
While the kids back home will leap
To the riverbeds below Market Street.
