More than once I packed it all up
Singing real friends in a car that fucking sucked
Just to clear my head and make some space
But there's one thing I can't seem to forget
That's the culmination of all my regrets
And how I just don't know how to forgive myself

Better days will come again
At least that's what they said

Id really like to focus on tomorrow
But I'm still blinded by today
I need to learn how to make my own decisions
before I'm old and grey
I never really liked being a kid anyway
Until all these bills were stacked miles high
Now I'm just stuck trying to survive

I still don't have what it takes to live on my own
I've over drafted buying everything I own
Spending recklessly will get you nowhere fast
You ask me what happened to us
And why our futures on hold collecting dust
I want to give you everything but I already spent it all

They say when trees fall down
It doesn't make a sound
If no one is around
To watch the bark begin to break
As the whole thing loses shape
I only hope the grounds as soft for me when I fall

Life's too short
To make me break down like this
And to make me
Succumb to the pressure
