Staring out my window at the sky
Sunset clouds make everything alright
For now, but soon I'll crash down
Won't be long till I'm 6 feet underground

Mixed metaphors running through my head
Highways and lemonade, I think I've been misled
In believing life and love are easy
That box of chocolates i just a tease

Cuz I have bruises on my heart that I made
And my excuses underwhelm and overplay
That's why I refuse to let anything begin
I get burned every time, every time I start again

The world seems to be in on some big dumb secret
Give me some trust, I can keep it
But I won't overestimate what the world will do
I know I'll never be able to love you

[rep. c]

It's not other people, it's me
I think I can finally see
It's not other people, it's me
That's just how it's gotta be
