lyrics

I am like a child still
Getting into everything
Hate to hear that something bad is for my good.

I will throw my toys around
Throw tantrums when they can’t be found
Can’t be trusted but I might be loved.

There’s a box tissue by my head when I lay down
The covers that I fight for every night when you’re in town
Are overwhelming me
I’m pharaoh in the sea.

Everyday I see this bottle waiting on the shelf
Is it too good for me to sit and finish by myself?
Or is it too good to share?
Would you even care?

When its just my mind and I the conversation’s stale.
No one to come to your defense but me and when I fail,
forgiven hurts survive,
Dead arguments revive.

The tether you attach to me;
The anchor of your charity.
If drifting’s what it means to be free,
I’ve had enough.
