lyrics

So many times I've
Fled from my own life
And I don't want to let this boat
Take me down.

'Cause I don't need to
Satisfy views
That terrify me and
Core me out

I don't wanna
Be the man who
Never breaks apart
And leaves the ground.

To die or struggle,
Lie and tumble,
This crash and burn
Will take me to the ground.

I never moved to love this light.
No bubble seemed to burst inside.
Sleek ribbon ties me to the floor.
I'm tender for more.

Look at your history,
the one that you mistreat.
It's no wonder that you
Come up shy.

Through faint sips of sorrow
And loans from tomorrow
These fresh stabs at victory will just
Leave you dry.

'Cause I don't wanna
Be the bad guy
The one who tells you
"You're not worth a thing."

You've got me listening
So don't be discrete
'Cause I don't wanna see you
Hit the ground.

I never moved to love this light.
No bubble seemed to burst inside.
Sleek ribbon ties me to the floor.
I'm tender for more.

I don't want to
I just try to
Be the one that I never was.
I might try to bring you back down.
It's always on.
