lyrics

If you sing "tell my why" in your song
I'm probably going to hate it because
Lyrics are tough, we all know
But you didn't make an effort.
And you tackle things like death and loss
then your chorus is a cop out.

You can't turn away and then complain you feel left out
You're in a self fulfilling state.
And I'm a hypocrite because I've done it all myself.
Wish you could learn from my mistakes.

I'm falling asleep here at the wheel now,
No longer a slave to my anxiety.
As I drift off I'm closer to the answer,
Or am I closer to a memory?
The broken yellow line, it races past me.

If you sing from the bile in your guts
If I can hear the pain in your voice
If they stop listening
It won't really make a difference because
These things they flow from from years of life
Unbridled as the ocean.

And as the cursor blinks below a page of tragedy
I'll be forever grateful for the words that tore him up,
The words that found new life in me.
Wish he could know now what they mean.

Never fall in love with the first draft.
There's always something better just beyond your reach.
Look inside your self until it hurts you.
That's the moment you'll really start to see me.
