lyrics

Sometimes I think my body stops my mind from thinking not to do some things I’m not supposed to do,
and I realize that everyone around me, though I think they’re noticing, they’re just continuing to be,
and the outside’s moving so fast that it’s difficult to think of all the things I can’t achieve,
and it makes me feel so bad when I am thinking of myself instead of helping some one else.

There are so many things that I believe in. Certain ways I’d like to be, but I don’t ever let them breathe.
I just keep my eyes shut and facing forward hoping if there’s something good that it will stumble into me,
And I’m constantly struggling just to get myself out of bed or comprehend what someone’s said.
I’ve spent so much time listening and even when I try my best I feel I’m understanding less.

I know that when my body passes on my spirit will perceive these things I’m not yet meant to see,
and that all of these things that I’m in love with, one by one, will peel away, and then be taken off of me.
But for now I’m still not sure how I can make it through my day without not knowing what to say.
Maybe one day not too long from now we’ll look back with a grin at this weird place where we begin.
