I'm Good 04:00
Verse 1: I see things I don’t care to remember I watch thinking it’s good for me I stay to prove I’m strong when really the tortures moving on Ab G I’m a liar exhausting every reality I’m hurt, I’m broken, I like it I can’t get perspective on me So when the voices in my ear whisper secrets I shouldn’t hear There’s only one thing I know I could ever be Chorus: I’m good, I’m good, I’m good I’m good, I’m good, I’m good At breaking my own heart Verse 2: I swear I’ll calm down when it’s useful For now, let me drown in negativity These rhymes so cold and clinical out of a mind most cynical Build a false sense of security And walking away was never an option I’ve got these vices that get me through See I play these little songs and you’re too dense to catch on Every fucking time it’s for you Chorus: I’m good, I’m good, I’m good I’m good, I’m good, I’m good At breaking my own heart Chorus: I’m good, I’m good, I’m good I’m good, I’m good, I’m good oh I'm good, I'm good I'm good At breaking my own heart and better at acting like It never fell apart

Backtracking 04:04
Verse 1: It was simple , It was nice But hot summer days fade to cool summer nights I know I’ll recover from loving him but it might take some Time, time, time Weeks go by, Oh and I just cry I sit and miss the days when he was mine It kills me to know that he’s out there feeling just Fine, fine, fine Chorus: He was out living while I looked through old photographs He climbed up mountains, I burrowed into the past He had adventures that taught him how to grow up While I went backtracking through Europe Verse 2: Oh my friends, they don’t know, don’t understand He’s out exploring and I’ve stopped making plans He’s touched every ocean and lord he’s still got a hold on these Hands, hands, hands Chorus: He was out living while I looked through old photographs He climbed up mountains, I burrowed into the past He had adventures that taught him how to grow up While I went backtracking through Europe Bridge: Retrace, rethink, rewind He’s having great times and I’m just wasting mine Chorus: He was out living while I looked through old photographs He climbed up mountains, I burrowed into the past He had adventures that taught him how to grow up While I went backtracking through Europe

Verse 1: Fire's slowly burning out watch all the ashes fall to the ground And broken windows aren't so scary when you learn fixing them isn't your burden to carry Pre-chorus: You know it's only a matter of time Everyone begins to blur the lines Between what's right and what's easy Goodbye obsessive compulsive reality Chorus: We're never the people we promise we'll be And I'm afraid I'm already as good as I'll ever be And I'm afraid that might be enough for me Verse 2: I'd like to drive away in my car But sometimes the risk isn't worth the reward We build up the pressure it's all we can do And the world feels different when people are counting on you Pre-chorus: You know it's only a matter of time Everyone begins to blur the lines Between what's right and what's easy Goodbye obsessive compulsive reality Chorus: We're never the people we promise we'll be And I'm afraid I'm already as good as I'll ever be And I'm afraid that might be enough for me
