sink swim – perfect on paper lyrics

Loading...

where did the genuine go?
what once was real is so painfully faux
what doors were open were slammed to a close
i’d rather throw my hands between then be the favorite you chose
today, you wake a sleeping giant
who know how to make you shake
your face, a waste
can’t take my place
your back-fired desire has you
falling from grace
a little salt for the wounds you get from hanging with
snakes

let me into your mind
for the first time
i want you to know what it’s like on the other side
can you hear our voices chime?
(way-oh, way-oh)
(way-oh, way-oh)
that’s the sound as your crown hits the ground

but no, it can’t always be bad
for all this i have become
some idea of a better man
if you love them let them go
i never tried to run the show
we look at life differently
you don’t know what it’s like to
lead, with love
a little salt for your wounds

let me into your mind
for the first time
i want you to know what it’s like on the other side
can you hear our voices chime?
(way-oh, way-oh)
(way-oh, way-oh)
that’s the sound as your crown hits the ground

before you go would you read this note
i made it just for you
it’s sure to save you time trying to read my mind
this head space isn’t made for two
we painted to sky blue
simply cause we wanted to
before the world became all about you
it’s easy to hate her it’s just human nature
i bet you think the plans you conjure
look perfect on paper
that pride pit you swallow
won’t make you less hollow
look back, no one follows
i know i won’t
