lyrics

No use holding on when it hurts this bad
I think I'd rather fall
If someone told me I could be a different man
I wouldn't care at all

You can call me pessimistic
But I think I'm right
So tell me
Do you remember
Who I was
Just the other night

Because
Everything's in my head
I just wanna be happy like I was back then
You should know I tried my best to never get in the way

Now all your flowers are dead
And I remember all that I said
You should know I don't ever wanna say it again

Release the strain and give it all to me
Can you see why
It makes me feel at home
At least the rain makes it harder to see it when you cry
It's difficult to know

You could say I'm quick to dismiss it
The seeds I've never sown
But tell me
Do you remember
Who I was
Before that bird had flown

Can barely believe I'm dreaming
It's a double-edged sword
Lately things have been seeming strange
I'm not like that anymore

Could it be that I've changed so much
We can no longer even talk
Lesson learned
Go quick, but don't rush
Don't try to run before you even walk

You can call me pessimistic
But I think I'm right
So tell me
Do you remember
Who I was
Just the other night

You can call me anything you like
