lyrics

Yesterday I woke up crying
It always hurts the same
I'm tired of trying
The pain never goes away

And I can't see things ever looking up for me

But today I woke up high
and I finally felt okay
A slight hangover,
but at least a different kind of pain

But I know that it's lurking somewhere 'round the bend
And I say...

Get me out of here
I'm dying to live
Cos if I'm stuck in here,
I'll stop trying to live

But for now I'll keep on fighting
There's nothing else I can
Though I feel much older
than my passport says I am

I found a love I thought would save me from myself, but she said...

“Get me out of here
I'm dying to live
Cos if I'm stuck in here,
I'll stop trying to live”
