If I could be, myself again Not so lost, in my own fears That everyone, I ever love, Will leave me here, again eventually We are all the same, it’s all we have It’s all we want to hold on to Now, we’re the same And everyone who ever loved is broken The second time I dared to feel Cracked me again but now I know That anyone who ever dreams Of happiness, cannot procrastinate We are all the same, it’s what we’ve got It’s all we have to hold on to Now, we’re the same Because everyone I ever loved is broken We are all the same, it’s what we’ve got It’s all we have to hold on to Now, we’re the same Because everyone I ever loved is broken

You can’t give, up on, everything this time The stars in the sky, won’t decline forever Hold on to hope, don’t regret what you have not Hold on to hope, don’t regret what you have not This low will give in to a high This low will give in to a high Don’t take the little things for granted Don’t take the little things for granted Don’t take the little things for granted Thank you Don’t take the little things for granted Don’t take the little things for granted Thank you

I can be, I can be, I can be all that you wanted Just stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, give me that moment Because I can be, I can be, I can be all that you wanted Just stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, give me that moment Our hands clasped tight lit by tree lights Our hands clasped tight lit by tree lights I will be there when you need me Our hands clasped tight lit by tree lights You could be, you could be, you are far too unforgiving And we tried, and we tried but we were destined to fail Because I can be, I can be, I can be all that you wanted Just stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, give me that moment Our hands clasped tight lit by tree lights Our hands clasped tight lit by tree lights I will be there when you need me Our hands clasped tight lit by tree lights Take me hand, take my hand, take my hand, trust in me because I can be, I can be, I can be, I can be everything just Take me hand, take my hand, take my hand, trust in me because I can be, I can be, I can be, I can be everything you need Now this means nothing Now you mean nothing Now this means nothing Now you mean nothing Now this means nothing Now you mean nothing to me

I am always going to be something Less than happy, lost inside every Single emotion, exploding in my head All contending to be heard at once We will always be this way? Not lost inside, thoughts of yesterdays Will we always be lost in ourselves Something joyous interrupts the path Of woeful dysfunction, sometimes ever after Means happy after all this We will always be this way? Not lost inside, thoughts of yesterdays All these thoughts, explode at once All these thoughts, explode at once All these thoughts, explode at once All these thoughts, explode

I’ve marked myself too many times Over each hopeless decline For every one, I loved and lost again and again and again and again You were the one that I thought Could hold on to me, in these bleak moments I know better now, you don’t mean a thing These marks will never appear again Remember always what we’ve lost Remember always what we’ve lost Remember always what we’ve lost Remember always what we’ve lost You don’t feel anything anyway You were the one that I thought Could hold on to me, in these bleak moments I know better now, you don’t mean a thing These marks will never appear again Remember always what we’ve lost Remember always what we’ve lost Remember always what we’ve lost Remember always what we’ve lost And I will never love again And I Will never hope again And I will never love again And I Will never hope again You don’t feel anything anyway Remember always what we’ve lost Remember always what we’ve lost Remember always what we’ve lost Remember always what we’ve lost And I will never love again And I Will never hope again And I will never love again And I Will never hope again You don’t feel anything anyway

Every word I ever tried to say Is wrong for, I’m wrong now Every fear I ever dared to feel Angered you, I’m wrong now Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing Every Hope I ever dared to dream Was wrong for you, I’m wrong now Every word I ever tried to speak Was wrong for you, so wrong Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing Any chance we ever had to make it, Fell apart now all hope is gone Every time I ever had to fake, this Fell apart now all hope is gone Any chance we ever had to make it, Fell apart now all hope is gone Because every hope you ever try to break will Fall apart now all hope is gone

You try too hard to be all ‘Cobain’ Blame the masses for arts mistakes By trying to be hypercritical You joined a demographic of negativity Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend Being down on everything, is the new ‘sold out’ It’s cool to ‘e-spout’ about how Christmas sold out Commerciality, has no credibility By trying to be hypercritical You joined the new trend Of trad dismissive statements Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend Being down on everything, is the new ‘sold out’ When did we all start using, the word trend anyway? Come as you are, but come with your mouth shut Come as you are, but come with your mouth shut Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend Stop trying to make everything you say some artistic statement Stop making everything, so pretentious

There is that moment in your world You meet someone, there’s a place called home And everything you thought, mattered doesn't make sense anymore But still we always find a way, to compromise our minds again And everything you thought, mattered doesn't make sense anymore And everytime you laid the blame, on me when this world crashed down again And everything I thought, had stopped opens up once again But still you always find a way, to twist my words around again And everything I thought, I loved are now all the things I hate So please don't say it's nothing, so please don't say it's nothing So please don't say it's nothing, that would break my heart over again So please don't say it's nothing, so please don't say it's nothing So please don't say it's nothing, that would break my heart over again So promise me that this will change So promise me that this will change So promise me that this will change So promise me that this will change
