lyrics

Tell me what it was you think you missed the most
Was it the city lights reflecting off the coast?
Or my self-destructive style?
You could hear me sing for miles and miles and miles
About the hand that I was dealt being so unfair
Oh my god, just to think I'd be caught at square one once again
And I know how that sounds
But I swear to God that I'll be coming back around again...
I think I'm almost fine for the first time in a long time
I'm finding out why none of this made sense when I was on my back
I started picking up the slack that I let float away over the past 365 days
We were spending late nights on the phone
After months without a single call back home
And for a second I thought you were making me okay
But, then I took a step back and remembered all the wasted days
Maybe everyone's right, maybe I spent too much time
Collapsing in on myself
I think I'm done collapsing in on myself
I think I'm almost fine for the first time in a long time
I'm finding out why none of this made sense when I was on my back
I started picking up the slack that I let float away over the past 365 days
I'll take a step out of my mind;
Draw open the blinds; let the world back in once again
Cause I spent a summer making promises I never planned to keep
I spent the spring before in bed wanting nothing more than to stay asleep
She said, "Just settle down a little, settle down kid...
Just settle down a little, settle down..."
Alright, I'll settle down a little, I'll turn my shit around...
Yeah, I'll settle down a little, and turn my shit around!
I think I'm almost fine for the first time in a long time
I'm finding out why none of this made sense when I was on my back
I started picking up the slack that I let float away over the past 365 days
