same drugs

Tuesday, April 28th, 2020

We don’t do the same drugs no more
We don’t do the, we don’t do the same drugs
Do the same drugs no more
Cause she don’t do the same drugs no more
We don’t do the, we don’t do the same drugs
Do the same drugs no more

When did you change?
Wendy, you’ve aged
I thought you’d never grow up
I thought you’d never
Window closed, Wendy got old
I was too late, I was too late
A shadow of what I once was

Cause we don’t do the same drugs no more
We don’t do the, we don’t do the same drugs
Do the same drugs no more
And she don’t laugh the same way no more (laugh the same way)
We don’t do the, we don’t do the same drugs
Do the same drugs no more

Where did you go?
Why would you stay?
You must have lost your marbles
You always were so forgetful
In a hurry, don’t wait up (yeah)
I was too late, I was too late
A shadow of what I once was

Cause we don’t, (we don’t) we don’t do what we say we’re gonna
You were always perfect, and I was always practice
Don’t you miss the days, stranger?
Don’t you miss the days?
Don’t you miss the danger? (Don’t you miss the danger?)

We don’t (we don’t) do the same drugs no more (no more)
We don’t do the, we don’t do the same drugs
Do the same drugs no more
And she don’t laugh the same way no more
We don’t do the, we don’t do the same drugs
Do the same drugs no more

Don’t forget the happy thoughts
All you need is happy thoughts
The past tense, past bed time
Way back then when everything we read was real
And everything we said rhymed

Wide-eyed kids being kids
When did you stop?
What did you do to your hair?
Where did you go to end up right back here?
When did you start to forget how to fly?

We don’t do the same drugs no more
We don’t do the, we don’t do the same drugs
Do the same drugs no more (dr-dr-dr-dr-drugs)
And we don’t act the same ways no more (we don’t act the same ways)
We don’t do the, we don’t do the same drugs
Do the same drugs no more

I don’t wanna be the center of it all
I don’t wanna be a memory fading
I don’t wanna be somebody I’m not
I just wanna be somebody amazing

I’ve been holding on to everything
With arms above, I’m balancing

I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together
I’ve been stalling, slipping, falling
Nothing, darling, lasts forever
There’s no way I’d trade my scars for better ones
I’ve been lost and I’ve been broken
Finally coming back together

I don’t wanna be afraid of my thoughts
I don’t wanna be scared of my shadow
Everybody looks for love where it’s not
Everybody wants to know they matter

I’ve been holding on to everything
With arms above, I’m balancing

I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together
I’ve been stalling, slipping, falling
Nothing, darling, lasts forever
There’s no way I’d trade my scars for better ones
I’ve been lost and I’ve been broken
Finally coming back together

I’ve been holding on to everything
With arms above, balancing

I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together
I’ve been stalling, slipping, falling
Nothing, darling, lasts forever
There’s no way I’d trade my scars for better ones
I’ve been lost and I’ve been broken
Finally coming back together
Back together
(I’ve been lost and I’ve been sinking
Broken, coming back together)

Back together

I don’t wanna see the wires in the circus anymore
I wanna dream and make believe people can fly
I don’t need to be reminded what it takes to kill the fun
I’ve got a head full of sharp knives

Yeah, it’s easy to get colder
And it’s easy to forget
So meet me where the light’s dim

We can wake up every mornin’
We can set ourselves on fire
And we can do it all again

The world don’t speak for us
They lack the confidence
Yeah, we’re only hearts and bones and blood
Oh, but we are giants
Giants

The walls are closing in
We climb and they descend
With nothing but the clouds against our skin
Oh, we are giants
Giants

I wanna roll around the darkness
‘Til the darkness goes away
‘Til the television finally tells the truth
You know everybody’s scared of things they don’t understand
And all the living they don’t do

Yeah, it’s easy to get colder
And it’s easy to forget
So meet me where the lights dim

We can wake up every mornin’
We can set ourselves on fire
And we can do it all again

The world don’t speak for us
They lack the confidence
Yeah, we’re only hearts and bones and blood
Oh, but we are giants
Giants

The walls are closing in
We climb and they descend
With nothing but the clouds against our skin
Oh, we are giants
Giants

I’m done tryin’ to fit in
And be half-forgiven
For things that I never did
We’re more than what scares us
We’re final and fearless
We’ll dance where the ice gets thin
Gets thin

The world don’t speak for us
They lack the confidence
Yeah, we’re only hearts and bones and blood
Oh, but we are giants
Giants

The walls are closing in
We climb and they descend
With nothing but the clouds against our skin
Oh, we are giants
Giants
