I don’t feel so well Forgive if you could not tell I smile when I’m sad Go inward when I’m mad as hell I don’t have the strength To carry all of your dead weight Maybe I’m just fragile Or maybe I know when it’s time to clear my plate I’ll stay starving, brokenhearted Can’t eat in the mornings I can’t sleep well in the evenings I can’t wake up and wish it all away Stay calm in the moment I can’t see straight where I’m going I can’t run faster than it takes This blue shall pass This blue shall pass

Know My Pain 03:21
I fell in love with every freckle on his face And when the sun went down the way he sang my name I fell in love with all the roles we used to play That star that cast a shadow on my fate But when a ghost took his place Could he feel my pain Could he feel my pain I fell in love with the stare behind his eyes It was a wild kind of crazy I liked Walked the aisle to the roles that we defined While he cast a wicked spell on my mind And when he trapped me in flames Could he feel my pain Could he feel my pain Disappearing in plain sight It’s like lightening striking twice I fall in love in love with fools It’s a thing, a thing I do Calling out to the next one on the line Will you know my story Will yours be like mine Two broken people with a yearning to survive Hoping that we can find a love of another kind Will you love me the same When you know my pain Will you be gentle and safe When you know my pain

Nature 03:03
I knew, I knew your nature I knew that you’d take the low hanging fruit cause it’s easier I knew I couldn’t save you Ignored the signs but a snake always bites, same old behavior It doesn’t feel good to hurt to be right All of the truth that I wished was a lie Call me crazy But I call it love not well spent I knew what was on the table I made the choice, took the poison, a real life fable It’s true I expected more Kept on believing that you’d quit deceiving me at every turn It doesn’t feel good to hurt to be right All of the sleep that I lost in the night Call me crazy But I call it time not well spent You could shed your skin but I see who you are You are what you are, you are what you are I knew your nature You could shed your skin but I see who you are You are what you are, you are what you are It doesn’t feel good to hurt to be right All of the truth that I wished was a lie Call me crazy But I call it love not well kept

Attic 03:01
I’ve got an attic in my house I go up there when I’m down Holding myself Ignore the sounds I’ve got an addict in my house How did you get there so far away And are you coming back to earth before it’s too late I won’t be the one to catch you so I’ve finally got to let you fade Once upon a medieval time Thrust and I parry with the knight Taking the blows as I throw mine Once a pawn of an evil eye How did you get there so far away And are you coming back to earth before it gets too late I won’t be the one to catch you so I’ve finally got to let you fade Roots in the garden Holes in the fence Leaks in the roof of a house I cannot fix Shattered widows to my soul These eyes seen things that shake the bones No architect could call this house a home I’ve got an attic in my house Climb the stairs and I clean it out Douse it in paint and gasoline I’ll get the addict out of me
