I've got to learn to make room for growth
I'm done with keeping these cards close

I'd cry out for brighter days
Always something in my way, though
If only I wasn't afraid
To make positive, meaningful change
But every time I closed my eyes
I'd look into myself and see nothing but shame
I'd keep on giving up
And I'd sleep, but the pain would never stop

I've got to learn to make room for growth
I'm done with keeping these cards close

I used to feel nothing (nothing)
But now I'm coming back again
And I know (and I know)
That I owe it all to you

We don't know where our fate lies
But we can only keep our heads high
If there is something (something)
That'll make us feel alive again
Then that's what we're gonna do

I'm Done

To the ones who praise you for getting out of bed in the morning, I salute you
To the ones who have nothing but love for others
There ain’t enough of you in this world
I wish I had people like you earlier on
‘Cause I’m low on self esteem

In my chest, I can feel this happening
This is it
Maybe I’m done with being dead inside
In my head, it’s not over, I won’t win
This ain’t it
I’m so tired of feeling dead inside

I’ve had way too much time on my hands
10 years later, this ain’t going to plan
I was meant to be a lawyer or some similar shit
But now I see I’m in a system that’s making me sick
Nothing to keep me motivated
I’m just a statistic going to waste

In my chest, I can feel this happening
This is it
Maybe I’m done with being dead inside
In my head, it ain’t over, I won’t win
This ain’t it
I’m so tired of feeling dead inside
Over and over again

Maybe there’ll be celebration
5 or 10 years down the line
My ambitions have changed
I’m better off this way
I’m not gonna be like you, if that’s okay?

In my chest, I can feel this happening
This is it
Maybe I’m done with being dead inside
In my head, it ain’t over, you won’t win
I won’t quit
I’m so tired of feeling dead inside
Over and over again

This Ain’t It

Run Away

Therapy didn’t do a thing for me
My history isn’t what I want to be in the end
Oh, I did everything back then
To stop myself from thinking too deep
About the guns, and the bombs, and the...


Carry on, run away from everything you’ll ever be
And I’m sure you’ll regret it in time
Destiny didn’t mean too much to me
But I was certain I’d fall for their design

I’ve committed to too much way too damn soon
I’d rather settle for a life on the moon
If sunsets are nothing more than scenic endings in movies
Then I’ll send a rocket up to space
And won’t come back again

Carry on, run away from everything you’ll ever be
And I’m sure you’ll regret it in time
Destiny didn’t mean too much to me
But I was certain I’d fall for their design

Life hasn’t changed
It won’t desert you
You’ll be okay
If you stand up tall
And run so far
Then you’ll understand just who you are.

Carry on, run away from everything you’ll ever be
And I’m sure you’ll regret it in time
Destiny still doesn’t mean too much to me
But I won’t ever fall for their design

Run Away

Run Away

Last summer was great
I’d be writing songs that weren’t filled with cliches
But when it started to get colder
I’d forget how to feel anything but broken record misery.
(Ugh.)

They taught me in life, it’s taking part that counts
But I’m holding on in last place
The winners still participated
And they’re all far away, celebrating
While I’m here all alone with my feelings
That’s why they went ahead and cut me from the B-Team

It’s 4am
So it’s kinda obvious
I’m asking dumb fxxxing questions
So many dumb fxxxing questions
When did I get so sour?
Hour and hour still passes by
I’m just waiting here to tell my story
I’m sure I’ll get my shit together in the morning.
(whatever)

The winners still participated
And they’re all far away, celebrating
While I’m here all alone with my feelings
That’s why they went ahead and cut me from the B-Team

(x4)
I still think of you
I still dream of the perfect morning view

They taught me in life, it’s taking part that counts
And that’s such an understatement
‘Cause I’d never feel nothing with you by my side
I’d wake up a winner every day in my life

But no, I’m alone tonight with my feelings
While I’m wondering what I did to be cut from the B-Team
(From the B-Team
From the B-Team
From the B-Team...)

Cut From The B-Team

I’m pretty certain
I’ve got the worst of luck
I’ve discovered my universe
But I’ll never be known by her
I’m setting sail
I’m going nowhere
And as I search for other life
I’m crying, lost and scared

In that moment, I knew in my heart
You were my everything
It was that twinkle in your eye
It was your radiant smile
And I know that the years to come will hurt like hell
Whatever happens, I wish you well

Simply put, I’m still not sure quite why
How this moment in time has ever came to be
I never thought I’d find someone so beautiful
Whoever shares your soul
I hope they see they’ve got it all

In that moment, I knew in my head
You were my everything
It was that twinkle in your eye
It was your radiant smile
And I know that the years to come will hurt like hell
Whatever happens, I wish you well

I’m pretty certain
I’ve got the worst of luck
I’ve discovered my universe
But I’ll never be known by her
I look up at the stars
I hope they show me the way
But then I close my eyes
And there came the surprise

In that moment, I knew for sure
You were my everything
It was that twinkle in your eye
It was your radiant smile
And I know now, it’s clear, that the years to come will hurt like hell
Whatever happens
(Whatever happens)
Whatever happens to me, I wish you well

Wish You Well
