SELFISH

TIGHT ROPE

I could be so vicious for everything you've put me through but I'm choosing not to

In your cowardice state you hide behind your keyboard

You’ve gotten everything handed to you your entire life

 

Coddled and praised for every little thing you did

 

So take a step in my shoes

Your lack of responsibility won't get you through

one single day

You’re a waste of space

Take in a deep breath of reality

Taste the way it feels to be on your own

 

Your point of view is self-centered and wielding

It’s your way or the highway

You’re never open to any form of criticism

 

And you pretend you're a god among men

The only thing you're good at is hurting the people who care about you

 

So take a step in my shoes

Your lack of responsibility won't get you through

one single day

You’re a waste of space

Take in a deep breath of reality

Taste the way it feels to be on your own

 

You’re not gonna make it through this life if you continue on the path that you're on

You only care about yourself

I’m worried about you

I see that you've moved on so god damn easily

Your loyalty was only genuine because you needed me

It’s not something that i’m a stranger to

I’m used to letting people use me like you do

 

You've got your emotions color coded

I've got these words locked and loaded

You act like my tightrope

My balance pending

Leaves me grasping the thin air with no one there

 

Recently

I'm getting more knives thrown at me

Wasn’t surprised to see your name carved into my back

I get taken advantage of when i'm weak

It’s probably my fault

I let people walk all over me

 

You've got your emotions color coded

I've got these words locked and loaded

You act like my tightrope

My balance pending

Leaves me grasping the thin air with no one there

 

It’s gotten past the point of this being mended

 

You've got your emotions color coded

I've got these words locked and loaded

You act like my tightrope

My balance pending

Leaves me grasping the thin air with no one there

BAD LUCK

Don’t you fucking dare let me down

 

That’s what I said on the night I gave you your last chance

I sat on your bed til 4:30 in the morning

Praying for things to be different after I left

Maybe there was a chance that all the time I spent wouldn't be wasted

 

How am I supposed to move on

without getting the closure that I deserve

I'm afraid to be happy because you could change your mind

What if someone else will love me like you don't?

 

You only care about me when I'm sitting next to you

You only talk to me when you need someone to complain about your life to

You never loved me and you lied when you said you did

I was in denial and I believed your dishonest promises

I was in denial

 

How am I supposed to move on

without getting the closure that I deserve

I'm afraid to be happy because you could change your mind

What if someone else will love me like you don't?

 

I loved you harder than any love I've ever felt

don't you fucking dare let me down

I could've started fires with what I felt for you

Will I ever be good enough?

 

How am I supposed to move on

without getting the closure that I deserve

I'm afraid to be happy because you could change your mind

What if someone else will love me

What if someone else will love me like you don't?

 

I lose my breath so fast

Always slipping on fault lines, falling through thin cracks

I always felt a growing sense of treason

But I learned that fear is the main source of superstition

You're the reason I'm afraid

 

You betrayed my trust

You've given me bad luck

You made me think I couldn't be the person I wanted to be

As the fire grew, you told everyone you knew

You betrayed my trust

You've given me bad luck

 

Now I hesitate to move

Because I'm terrified you'll see more flaws

I feel manipulated, I'm your voodoo doll

There's no vacancy for the love of anyone else

Inside my chest

 

You betrayed my trust

You've given me bad

You made me think I couldn't be the person I wanted to be

As the fire grew, you told everyone you knew

You betrayed my trust

You've given me bad luck

 

The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies

What’s important is that you learn from the mistakes that you've made

And only trust people who deserve to be trusted

Build your wall up to the clouds

Only those willing to climb are gonna be worth it

 

You betrayed my trust

You've given me bad luck

You made me think I couldn't be the person I wanted to be

As the fire grew, you told everyone you knew

You betrayed my trust

You've given me bad luck

 

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY TO SAVE LIVES

I have these flashbacks when I think about potentially loving someone else

Reminds me of how we sealed our love on a little piece of paper and hung it on the wall

 

There comes a time when you realize

That there might be more yesterdays than tomorrows

But no matter how dark it gets the sun is going to rise again

What’s broken can be mended and what's hurt can be healed

 

I knew that something wasn't right when I heard the knock on the door

 

There comes a time when you realize

That there might be more yesterdays than tomorrows

But no matter how dark it gets the sun is going to rise again

What’s broken can be mended and what's hurt can be healed

 

I just got you back and you're gone again

"Wait for me" you said

It was all in your head

 

There comes a time when you realize that there might be more yesterdays than tomorrow

 

The carousel never stops turning

The sudden impact of a car crash caused a life long panic attack

You were so selfless you didn't deserve this

She told me not to worry she said everything would be fine

It’s a beautiful day to save lives
