Alive Like Me – What Did You Expect lyrics

I'm gonna say something you don't want to hear
You can't live up to lies that you have built inside
Your head for all these years

You're gonna cave just like we expected and
When you break I will stand collected staring at the floor
Watching you pick up the broken pieces

Are you
Holding back the truth from me so much that
I can start to see right through you
Why did it take so long
To get across the message I’ll have to get
This off of my chest

Slow down
You keep on running when the problem is yourself
So pick your head up and change direction
While you still recognize reflections of yourself
Slow down
The problem’s you and no one else

And if you can close your eyes
And fall asleep tonight
You can escape this nightmare
That you call your life
While your actions are burning bridges down
Shutting doors that your words cannot reopen anymore
Knowing it only gets worse when you wake up

Thinking that there’s something real
When fallacy is all you feel, just tell me
Why did it take so long
To get across the message
I’ll have to get this off of my chest

Slow down
You keep on running when the problem is yourself
So pick your head up and change direction
While you still recognize reflections of yourself
Slow down
The problems you and no one else

What did you expect from being so deceiving?
Every other second you had me believing
There was something wrong with me
But it was just another thing
That I let get inside my head based off all the lies you said
Are you
Holding back the truth from me so much that
I can start to see right through you
Why did it take so long
To get across the message I’ll have to get
This off of my chest

Slow down
You keep on running when the problem is yourself
So pick your head up and change direction
While you still recognize reflections of yourself
Slow down
The problems you and no one else

What did you expect from being so deceiving
Every other second you had me believing
There was something wrong with me
But it was just another thing
That I let get inside my head based off all the lies you said
