I Just Want My Hoodie Back

lyrics

I'm sick, sick of wasting time
Searching for the thoughts and words
I just can't seem to find
And I'm lost in a sea of broken faith
They promised I'd escape,
But I feel as if my body's bound to break
What do I know
About keeping it together for the road?
I'm just a heart with broken wings
All that's left for me's to sing
And pray I stop sinking

He's whispering to me,
"Close your eyes and sleep,
You can lie with me and weep,"
But I will never dream
I'm scared of waking up in sweat
Demons grabbing at my neck
Pulling me closer to the edge

I don't have the guts or the morals
To get to the finish line
I always stop short to catch my breath
I'll keep my head down
'Cause this fog's too thick to see where I'll fall
But what's another broken ankle
When all I do is crawl?
And I try to get the best of the world,
But I lose my courage sometimes
Just give me reason to keep faith
In anything, just give me anything

The record keeps playing songs in my head
Of words that I long forgot
And things I should've said
But I can't tell the difference between the floor
And my bed
Both still keep me sleepless
And wishing I was dead
I've been desperate for what you all call love
Except I don't call it anything
But a night's worth of lust
Don't get me wrong, I'm not without a heart
I just can't stand the sight of someone else
Tearing me apart

I don't have the guts or the morals
To get to the finish line
I always stop short to catch my breath
I'll keep my head down
'Cause this fog's too thick to see where I'll fall
But what's another broken ankle
When all I do is crawl?
And I try to get the best of the world,
But I lose my courage sometimes
Just give me reason to keep faith
In anything, just give me anything
