i’ll still have me

Thursday, July 15th, 2021

I broke my back ’cause
I thought you would too
I’d run in circles
I thought you would too

Maybe in another life
Everything worked out alright
And things that made this harder passed us by
But there’s no bad dream to wake up from
Know I got it bad when it’s the morning
And you’re all that’s on my mind

If I don’t have you
At least I’ll still have me
And if I don’t have you
At least I’ll still have me

I never thought twice
‘Cause you were my number one
I put you first ’cause
You were my only thought

No more riding on the train
No more smoking in the alley
Now my secrets only stay with me
Everybody knows I’m upset
They don’t even have to ask it
They know I believed in us last week

And if I don’t have you
At least I’ll still have me
And if I don’t have you
At least I’ll still have me

There’s no reason to speak badly
We just reached our end
I will see you in parts of me
In who I was back then

If I don’t have you
At least I’ll still have me
And if I don’t have you
At least I’ll still have me
Me
Me

never got around to it

Still got your pictures up on the wall
I can’t take ’em down
I keep expecting you to call
But you don’t make a sound
Time ain’t supposed to pass this slow
Should have forgotten you long ago
I just never get around to getting over you

I’m tired of putting it off til tomorrow
Should’ve done it yesterday
No gain in drowning in my sorrow
Just wasting away
Just when I think I got it made
You never fail to get in the way
I just never get around to getting over you

If I could just convince myself
To open my eyes and see
You’re not the one for me
Then I could start all over
And get on with my life and be
Free from your memory
I could be free

(You see) You’re still here after all this time
And I can’t erase you from my mind
I just never get around
Never get around, baby
Never get around to getting over you

i wanna get better

Saturday, December 5th, 2020

Hey, I hear the voice of a preacher from the back room
Calling my name and I follow just to find you
I trace the faith to a broken down television, and put on the weather
And I’ve trained myself to give up on the past ’cause
I froze in time between hearses and caskets
Lost control when I panicked at the acid test
I wanna get better

While my friends were getting high and chasing girls down parkway lines
I was losing my mind because the love, the love, the love, the love, the love
That I gave wasted on a nice face
In a blaze of fear I put a helmet on a helmet
Counting seconds through the night and got carried away

So now I’m standing on the overpass screaming at the cars
“Hey, I wanna get better!”

I didn’t know I was lonely ’til I saw your face
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better
I didn’t know I was broken ’til I wanted to change
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better

I go up to my room and there’s girls on the ceiling
Cut out their pictures and I chase that feeling
Of an eighteen year old who didn’t know what loss was
Now I’m a stranger
And I miss the days of a life still permanent
Mourn the years before I got carried away

So now I’m staring at the interstate screaming at myself
“Hey, I wanna get better!”

I didn’t know I was lonely ’til I saw your face
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better
I didn’t know I was broken ’til i wanted to change
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better

‘Cause I’m sleeping in the back of a taxi
I’m screaming from my bedroom window
Even if it’s gonna kill me

Woke up this morning early before my family
From this dream where she was trying to show me
How a life can move from the darkness
She said to get better
So I put a bullet where I shoulda put a helmet
And I crash my car ’cause I wanna get carried away

That’s why I’m standing on the overpass screaming at myself
“Hey, I wanna get better!”

I didn’t know I was lonely ’til I saw your face
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better
I didn’t know I was broken ’til I wanted to change
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better
