If you want better then go get it Don't settle and let it all go to shit Don't you settle for nothing and let it all go That's what I tell myself I've been half-hearted And filled with doubts And I'm trending down I'm running out of patience Because I've paced in circles plenty With no one there to guide me But I carry on While black and white just bleeds into the grey Chasing ghosts into another winter With a faded heart The weather keeps it bitter Cause it's over and over again It always felt like this was Building inside of my head But my memory's fading Resentment can never Seem to justify the blame We built this from nothing 'Cause nothing was the same No matter what you take No, it won't go away The pain you feel Is it getting too real? Chasing ghosts into…

Why's it out of your scope? Why you calling my phone? Can't you leave me alone? You know I tried so hard to grow But you're stepping on my toes (on my toes) And when you finally find your way back to me I find it hard to never say that I see All the ways you try to put it back all on me Put it back all on me I'm sick of hearing about that dirt on your shoulder It's every day you spit it over and over The thought of you is tasking on my mind It happens all the time Pick your way through cherry trees So that you can try to be, just like me But it's not like me to be like you And it's been a few months with it I feel myself slippin' You always talk when you should listen Don't you see it? What you missin'? I'm sick of hearing about that dirt on your shoulder It's every day you spit it over and over The thought of you is tasking on my mind It happens all the time I've got something to say this time So don't mess around (mess around) Just come around (just come around) I'm really trying to play this right But after what you said I'll never get it out of my head You can try and try For a place in line And a chance to roll the dice And you play these games But is it really worth it in the end? I'm sick of hearing about that dirt on your shoulder It's every day you spit it over and over The thought of you is tasking on my mind It happens all the time I've got something to say this time So don't mess around (mess around) Just come around (just come around) I'm really trying to play this right But after everything You wore me thin

It's been a couple days Since I've seen your face I guess I'm trying to say Home is a different place Do you still think of me? Do you still think of me? 'Cause I still think of you 'Cause I still think of you, fuck (Whoa, oh, oh Whoa, oh, oh) I've got a lump in my throat That started on the coast I've got a heart that's broke And I'm not much different (Not much different) I'm just so sick from it (I'm just so sick from it) I hope those single nights alone Are better than when I was coming home (Coming home) And now I come back to an empty room (Come back to an empty room) Guess it was all just too much for you I hope it's easier now Without me I wonder if you'll notice I'm gone It's been a couple days Since I've seen your face I wonder how you're doing Do you still stay up late? Forget to wash your face? You're still a beauty when you're sleeping I still have lonely nights They're exhausting when I can't sleep I feel you reaching for me So I count back from ten Hoping to see you again But still be wishing you'd be better without me I take it day by day But I still feel the same I wonder if you noticed I'm gone It's been a couple days Since I've seen your face I wonder how you're doing Do you still stay up late? Forget to wash your face? You're still a beauty when you're sleeping Do you still think of me? 'Cause I still think of you Do you still think of me? 'Cause I still think of you (Whoa, oh, oh Whoa, oh, oh) Do you still think of me? 'Cause I still think of you Do you still think of me? Do you still think of me? 'Cause I still think of you 'Cause I still think of you It's been a couple days Since I've seen your face I wonder how you're doing Do you still stay up late? Forget to wash your face? You're still a beauty when you're sleeping Do you still think of me? 'Cause I still think of you Do you still think of me? 'Cause I still think of you

When you get a taste Of the life you crave But the bed you made Starts feeling like a hearse It's a fitting curse That the dream you chase Just leaves you feeling worse The writing gets painful 'Cause you built this from the dirt And the songs you're playing Over and over never seem to work When you're falling short Try to build it up And let the feeling ride I never held so hard onto the Things that keep me grounded 'Cause I've gotten used to running away You said it wouldn't be easy And I didn't believe you Now I see firsthand why I feel disconnected With an empty room And a 15 hour drive We're living city to city I'll be gone 'til June While my loved ones pass me by I always thought I was ready Well I tried So fucking hard But letting go is Never what it takes To break the spell of giving In to what you think of me The writing, it gets painful When you're asking me to stay 'Cause the song keeps Playing over and over Begging me I never held so hard onto the Things that keep me grounded 'Cause I've gotten used to running away You said it wouldn't be easy And I didn't believe you Now I see firsthand why I feel disconnected Your heart says warm Decembers But I'm still stuck in May How can i be there for you When I'm here for me? I never held so hard onto the Things that keep me grounded 'Cause I've gotten used to running away You said it wouldn't be easy And I didn't believe you Now I see firsthand why I feel disconnected

I think about you every day Since you moved away Since you moved away from here It was this time last year I wish you didn't but I can't complain No I can't complain Cause I choose to stay right here Maybe this time next year you'll come around Things aren't so simple you see And when I'm looking around me It's clear that I'm right where I should be And I'm determined to stand my ground With or without you around Just like you said to me "Okay, so this is over hey?" I can't bring back The feelings of those days Don't wait, just get it over with I know you're so, you're so over it Things aren't so simple you see And when I'm looking around me It's clear that I'm right where I should be And I'm determined to stand my ground With or without you I'll never understand your plan To make me eat out of your hands And leave me all alone again Leave me all alone again Leave me all alone again Can't get you out of my head You don't care how much I shake Too numb to be a normal state Is this just what it's like to break? Whoever made this world barely put it together Together at all
