lyrics

This used to be all that I'd need
I think it's still all that I've ever wanted
I still give a shit, I swear
More than I should,
More than I thought I could care
I'll be free from jaded doubts and
Frills that don't mean anything,
Eventually...

I'm scared to death
You won't love me
Yeah clearly I still cling to
External dependency
We all want humility
But not some crippling,
Unhinged tendency
To devote ourselves without
Believing that we'll come to be,
Anything

I'm off the floor
I tell myself
But this feels the same
And these feelings squelch
But who's keeping score
Except for me

This used to be all that I'd need
I think it's still all that I've ever wanted
Am I ambitious, young, and free
Or is ambition getting the best of me?
Adding expectations up like dreams
When you can barely sleep,
And don't believe

I'm off the floor
I tell myself
But this feels the same
And these feelings squelch
But who's keeping score
Except for me
