I'm better off alone,
I know it,
This is a one man mission.
I want to give you all when I'm giving
but then i've got nothing more.
I know it comes around,
Oh am I the only one who's tired of it coming around?
Probably never let you know
but I think I hold on for fear of letting you down.

Every time I try to know it
feels like there's something missing.
I cannot sleep it off
But I can hide it
By sleeping in.
No need to see the day,
It's only long and crowded,
Keep it away,
Don't want to know about it.

I'm gonna take my time
To say it
Cos' I'm not sure what I'm saying.
Gonna take my words
and plant them
They can talk when they're tall trees swaying.
Let it take control,
We're only human
This world is all consuming.

Have I ever really questioned
Why I wanted
Everything I have
That surrounds me,
memory haunted?
And everything I lack,
How could I hold so strong?
Carry on my back,
all of these rights and wrongs?

I do not want to hurt you.
I do not want to numb you.
I do not wish to change you.
You are who
Ever you are.
Ever this day.
Ever this dream walk
Ever your way.
