So you swallow your heart and you swallow your pride. You got to be tough if you want to survive. They’ll chew you up and they’ll eat you alive. You shouldn’t give up on the dreams in your mind.
When you try your best but you don’t succeed, when you get what you want but not what you need, when you feel so tired but you can’t sleep, stuck in reverse. When the tears come streaming down your face, when you lose something you can’t replace, when you love someone but it goes to waste, could it be worse?
I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing.
Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck, some nights I call it a draw. Well, some nights I wish that this all would end cause I could use some friends for a change. Well, that is it guys, that is all—five minutes in and I’m bored again. Ten years of this, I’m not sure if anybody understands?
How am I going to be an optimist about this? Oh where do we begin? The rubble or our sins?
When the days are cold and the cards all fold. Don’t want to let you down but I am hell bound. Though this is all for you don’t want to hide the truth.
And the cry goes out; they lose their minds for us, and how it plays out. Now we’re in the ring and we’re coming for blood—tired little laughs, gold-lie promises: we’ll always win at this.
Who says you are to stay? How’s this the easier way? It’s far from giving up. Cowards never say, “Enough is enough”. All the things you can’t control should never destroy your love or hopes. I found a place where we belong.
Don’t try to blame the things that bring you down, just see.
All the emptiness inside you is hard enough to fill without a sense of purpose. We’re setting up to fail, you don’t have to make it right. Just hold your head up high.
