You don’t have to sit up straight Cause I won’t even ask what’s wrong I only have myself to blame I know, to you it’s just a game I won’t have nowhere to go If I keep burning down my bed And I keep eating off my plate I know, it’s all about display I know it’s all about display I know it’s all about display How could I ever earn your trust If when you run I can’t keep up I only have myself to play These songs are nothing but a wreck And when you have somewhere to go I hope it’s somewhere you can rest The days are golden and intense My god hears no one but the best My god hears no one but the best My god hears no one but the best Will you have love for me When life don’t go my way Will you have room for me When I don’t get my pay Will you have memory When I want to forget Will you have time for me When I don’t want to play No one will pay for my defense I chose to fight myself instead I only put your name to rest Because I know, you’re the only one that helps Will you have love for me When life don’t go my way Will you have room for me When I don’t get my pay Will you have memory When I want to forget Will you have time for me When I don’t want to play I know it’s all about display I know it’s all about display I know it’s all about display I know it’s all about display

Everyone I know back home is fine Everybody knows the truth so we don't lie We play, we kid, we see ourselves get by It’s not for me, It’s not for me, it’s not for me I’m way more soft than I like to accept You always knew but let me have my way You’re way too strong to ever let me down You’re way too strong to hide your need to cry it out Even if I fall down to my knees Even if I hold myself accountable Even my stars won’t intercede my tired heart is wide awake and wonderful winners don’t do drugs winners don’t get hugs winters don’t lose hope winners never lie Everyone I know back home is fine Everybody cries but we’re all shy We tear ourselves to shreds when we’re alone But now we’re here, so now we're strong, so now we're strong Even if I fall down to my knees Even if I hold myself accountable Even my stars won’t intercede our tired heart is wide awake and wonderful our tired heart is wide awake and wonderful our tired heart is wide awake and wonderful

And I don’t have the ways To quiet down the night And stretch the pavement to your place If time could take a day I couldn't let it go to waste And still if we had ages I cannot see the day Where we would just run out of pages And every moment knows and asks me not to take it And I don’t have the days To settle down my verbs and have the courage to rephrase If I would write it down I’d only make a mess And still when we were aimless We could not find a road Where we would drift apart as strangers Through every step I take The days are light and never dangerous And I don’t have the waves To leap out through the air And bring your voice to every place If I could keep you here If you could keep me safe

I’m not trying to cut a good path anymore Every time I do I’m just consumed in changing course to see How far I can go How far I can go I’ve been known to try to find what’s best for me Yet I’m a prodigy at shutting down the worried signs to stop I know you love to follow rivers through the woods If there’s an ocean waiting, I can’t give my word But I have nowhere else to go Where else to Nowhere else to go I have nowhere else to go Where else to Nowhere else to go My only instincts roam Along the way I saw the joy in every storm Every change is small but mountains grow and I could feel How small We could go How small we could go I’ve been afraid to to lose myself in dead end flows So I missed the banks were blooming through my course I know you love to follow rivers through the woods If there’s an ocean waiting, I can’t give my word But I have nowhere else to go Where else to Nowhere else to go I have nowhere else to go Where else to Nowhere else to go My only choice is roam
