In My Head 02:35
Hate how the stories start it Girl meets guy, then they depart Suits always sell the same insane rose-coloured dream Young lovers all washed up Because it’s never just enough To love someone and be without their bodies And all the boys are down Cause they haven’t found the ones to bite their tongues, still on the streets catcalling And all the girls are low Cause they ain’t got a love to call their own Wishing that they’ll never have start it Cause in my head it was happy days But it’s never the same You’re never the same And in the end I’ve got myself to blame It’s so very lame Romanticised exhaustion Somehow seems appealing So weave the fiction right before my eyes When desperate hearts stay blind And the broken peoples think that they can save unstable minds To think I’d call these thoughts my own Can never seem to draw the line And all the girls are a mess Cause there ain’t nobody to contest Yet only handsome ones will pass the marking And all the boys are depressed Cause every feeling shown just gets repressed Grow so obsessed when attention’s finally calling Cause in my head it was all okay It’s never been so grey Can’t keep it away And in the end I’ve got myself to blame It's so very tame Cause in my head it was happy days But it’s never the same You’re never the same And in the end I’ve got myself to blame It’s so very lame

It was so much easier Singing to myself Now all that I can do is worry Cradle under the sheets Cursing into my hands Cause all I can do is say I'm sorry I wish I didn't care I wish I didn't I wish I didn't care what you think I don't want to meet your friends Cause all I'll do is stare and keep my mouth shut It's always awful having to make a fuss Sometimes I wish I never asked I ought to use no more when I answer It's sad to never have original thoughts I wish I didn't care I wish I didn't I wish I didn't care what you think I wish I didn't care I wish I didn't I wish I didn't care what you Wash and comb my facade Because I'm going out tonight And I'll be sure to list all of my accomplishments Guess I'm at the back again Not a single glance behind What am I doing with myself? I wish I didn't care I wish I didn't I wish I didn't care what you think I wish I didn't care I wish I didn't care I wish you cared

I Miss You 03:22
I wrote a message on my window That I know you'll never see So I rubbed it out As quickly as the vapour came to be But my heavy breath fogged up the glass It's cold memory restored So I stayed there watching as you left And it came flooding back once more Cause I'm still thinking bout you And you say you do too But I don't believe you Now I don't know where to cry Whenever you cross my mind And I can't subdue you I know I'm such a sorry sight to watch I'll never be alright whenever we talk I only wish you knew how much I miss you The traffic passing by Red reflections, just a momentary blink Long walks in the night Mean nothing if the numbness doesn't hit And you called me up in the morning As you walked up to my door But the moment I swung it open You couldn't feel it anymore And I when I caught you staring I just told you I was bored Yet standing in the cold this way Feels like I'm going through withdrawal Cause I'm still thinking bout you And you say you do too But I don't believe you Now I don't know where to cry Whenever you cross my mind And I can't subdue you I know I'm such a sorry sight to watch I'll never be alright whenever we talk I only wish you knew I wrote a message on my window That I know you'll never see I dread to see the day I'll have to rub it off completely

In retrospect, I can't lie I've been trying way too hard Sometimes the floating feels alright Till every part of me gives up Cause it's so exhausting Feeling this way Sunken eyes and sleepless nights Of crawling out, crawling out Shuffling wonders Of what people will say Hopeless ties and other lies It's coming down, coming down What did you think you'd see When you tried to call on me Sorry that I can't always Stick around, stick around While you give it all I'd never let you see me bleed I'm sorry that I'm always underground now My pale complexion takes the light again When did your hair grow out so long? Seeing you without me looks just right Even if it always feels so wrong Cause it's so exhausting Feeling this way Endless fights, no appetite Still full of doubt, full of doubt Shuffling wonders of how I will decay A heavy chest, so out of breath It's creeping now, creeping out What did you think you'd see When you tried to call on me Wish I could stay with you to Stick it out, stick it out While you give it all I'd never let you see me bleed I'm sorry that I am aways Underground now Underground now It's so exhausting Hope you know I never mean to let you down Forever pondering If you could see me now
