The light went off, I can’t remember when
I don’t know if I’ll be shining again
The roof of my courage has rotted right through
But the base is such a comfort that I may never move

There is something still and serene
About knowing it can’t be as it could have been
In the beginning it all seems so hard
Cause you never know how far you’ll go until you fall apart

I have nowhere to be
And no one at all is expecting anything from me
I find myself dreaming of love
Cause when you’re being kissed it’s ok to be a little fucked up

My head is calm like the eye of a storm
My heart is still like a cup of tea that’s gotten warm
I’d love to pick up and get away
But I’m not sure I’ll have enough for coffee everyday

My brother got promoted, my sister’s in the woods
My parents are on the sailboat, I bet they’re doing good
My best friend had a baby, there’s pictures on her blog
From afar they seem so grounded while I’ve never felt so lost

I sit awake at night
Dreaming of the life that I’d like
But when I see the next day in the sun
I get to my feet and forget about who to become
The truth is a hard rock to chew
You know you’re going your own way when no one follows you
It could be we’re all better off alone
But the better way’s the only road that no one’s ever known

Why is it so hard? Why is it such a fight?
I find that I’m a stranger to myself most of the time
I’ll never be healed and I’ll never be free
And I’ll never have my story just as I’d like it to be

But time never comes to an end
It’s tempting to forget and pretend
But we really only have one shot
It’s sad to hate yourself when you know that you’re all that you’ve got

And so I guess no matter what comes
I’ll put on a smile and I’ll beat my own drum
The problem with living is that we’re alone
But the best thing about people is that everybody knows
