I'm fighting out my thoughts of what's impossible I'm breaking everything that I find tangible And there's a violence that sends my head spinning And I'll scream it again: Why did I have to be me? Driving fast with the lights down I'm lost with no way out Will I make it? I can't fake this. How can I see what I am to be? Will you believe the best in me? and take this pressure off somehow I'm better off without it now Take a hold of these little hopes in silent moments They grant us the strength for new days coming There must be a change that comes with age I try to remind myself that I was worth it all this time Prepare yourself for what they won't see coming
Take some time, you’re going to need it my friend If you go out alone in the end it’s your decision Set your sight, do you finally see light? I think you’re starting to see the picture you’ve been painting and I believe that you’ll be taking the center of stage and I believe that you’re no longer a bird in a cage If you’re going to go all out, you’re doing it right Take a second just to breathe slow It’s going to get harder down this road (yeah you know) If you’re going to go down in flames, you’re doing it right Take your life, and see you ain’t living right If you’re going to go take this risk then you might as well go in debt and when you look back on all those years' filled regret you will soon find out that they don’t exist Take some time, you’re going to need it my friend Take some time, it's going to be all right
I stayed up all that night. I hate to see you cry, but you're so far away I want to take your pain, there's got to be a way If I could just get back to you to make sure you’d feel brand new But you're so far away There's got to be a way Did you forget that everything will work out fine? Do you remember you're worth more than what's left behind? You've given me something and I can't replace it All the words you spoke in my life I can't feel the floor beneath me, I'm losing gravity You are more than just a spark, and never an afterthought Well I just can't sleep at all knowing you couldn't sleep it off Can't imagine what's running through your head And why am I still here if your hands are over there? Throwing caution to the wind, I'm taking the next train I'm coming to see you I'll travel back to those places for you I'll try my best to renew
Joy 03:49 video
I lay here on the floor with all my reasons I’m asking myself why I even try My head is filled with all the pain that I had held within these days I’m wishing it could all just go away, you know? The weight of what surrounds won’t fall beneath me the feeling is starting to feel addicting this fear is such an undertow It takes you down and keeps you low it’s harder now to see such brighter days Can you tell me now, the light you see in me? Could you turn it on so I can finally see who you are is who you’ll be you’re everything you’ll ever need If you’re everything you’ll fight for It’s worth it in the end It’s harder now to take back lies within me It’s harder now to shift what I believe But I have seen the joy in life and never has it felt empty I know that there must be such days ahead I will lay down my time to make sure you see what lies within you for you to see what’s in you


A sound reminiscent of early 2000's alternative rock, made for modern listeners craving for a taste of coming-of-age nostalgia.
