lyrics

I’m holding onto something that I was before;
The years, they keep on coming and I got to go,
But it’s hard to keep on running
When you’re running out of air.
I’m tired of feeling phony;
Talking counterfeit.
Sure, I lost a love of love,
But now I’m ‘over it’ and you
Yeah, you were something new

But I don’t have you where I want you,
And mostly I don’t need to,
But if I had you when I want you
Then I’d be good
But I’ve had too many chances with you,
And you don’t return my glances like you used to,
And I’m sick of always feeling like I’m being used,
So I’m good

Yeah, I’m good just to let it go
I felt my, my heart jump for the open road,
It said, “Boy, you best get yourself away from here,
And breathe deep until your lungs give out
Find it, the kind of love worth singing about,
And when you feel like tomorrow’s all you get
Just remind yourself that you haven’t died just yet.”

She’s clinging to the fragments of a fantasy;
The kind of neon dreams we sell in magazines,
But it’s hard to find the truth
When all we’re chewing through are Facebook feeds.
Aren’t you tired of feeling phony;
Talking counterfeit?
Never feeling any love, you say you’re ‘over it’,
And me - yeah, I just want you

But I don’t have you where I want you,
And mostly I don’t need to,
But if I had you when I want you
Then I’d be good
But I’ve had too many chances with you,
And you don’t return my glances like you used to,
And I’m sick of always feeling like I’m being used,
So I’m good

Just to let it go
I felt my, my heart jump for the open road,
It said, “Boy, you best get yourself away from her,
And breathe deep until your lungs give out
Find it, the kind of love worth singing about,
And when you feel like tomorrow’s all you get
Just remind yourself that you haven’t died just yet.”

And when you feel like tomorrow’s all you get,
Just remind yourself that you haven’t died just yet.
[No, I haven’t died just yet]
