I assume you don't know my name
no I don't like it, but what other choice do I have?
all that shit that we thought, it just don't matter no more
'cause life needs a whole, and I'm just a half

can you hear me smiling?
'cause I'm starting to see just how the world goes 'round
it's so strange to believe just how alone we all are
and I don't need you to tell me what it's all about

even as it feels like I'm telling the truth
something in my voice says I'm lying to you
and even as it feels like I'm running away
all I really want is you to ask me to stay

oh oh, even now you wake me up

watch the sky get light as we drive
you see, they fuck it up, they always devour my name
trying not to treat you like you will never leave
because I have grown up, and you're just the same

across the neighborhood I hear you
come on and let me go, this never was part of the deal
I listen to my phone to quench my thirst for your voice
I have to make myself hurt to know it was real



we're all just exactly as heartless as we need to be
after all that I've done, how can you even look at me?

I feel hard, I fall harder
