lyrics

I am broken by design, not far from anybody elses shitty past, a bitter fact that I still blame myself. I'd like to laugh about it now, or even see it as a blur, reach the point where I am happy and I don't have to come to terms. But i'm not quite there, and I have never been it seems like such a steady stage is fixed on feeling permanent. I used to hold it in my head but now its spilling out my mouth. You couldn't fucking love me then, how could you fucking love me now.

Things fall apart, and then they leave too soon. So why miss a second involving you so lets dance, blow this whole night away. Don't you just think that I might want to stay. For a second I look at your eyes, they were looking away the whole time. So then when I turn to leave you wouldn't mind

This is me at my weakest point
These are the issues I couldn't avoid.
If I can't think this shit through then i'm probably as hopeless and damaged as you.

I can frolic in phrase that I am better off alone, but on my darkest days it's never helped me cope. I can divvy out the blame to everyone i've ever known, or I can face the fact that you were fucking wrong. It's taken all this time to process what you've done but with the rising sun I am new again. It's taken all this time to process what you've done and with the rising sun I am new again.
