Bayside – Thankfully lyrics

That's just like me when everything's gone wrong
To latch onto something even less stable, less good
I needed an anchor for my sinking ship
It's just like me to attach it to my heart instead

I think this was a test
To see how long I could hold my breath
I understand, but I gotta remind myself
That even at my worst I can keep my head
Alone I stand
United we fall apart
One union under God
But not for long, thankfully

That's just like me when everything else fails
To go for the gold, the unattainable goals
Enough's not enough when you're beat to the floor
As if heartache's not heartache enough anymore

I think this was a test
To see how long I could hold my breath
I understand, but I gotta remind myself
That even at my worst I can keep my head
Alone I stand
United we fall apart
One union under God
But not for long, thankfully

When we were young we never cared
And now we're scared of jumping in
Like we've forgotten how to swim
But if we try and if we tread
Then we can teach ourselves again
'Cause it's worth the chance we take
When we were young we never cared
But now we're scared of jumping in
Like we've forgotten how to swim
But I think that we should try and we should tread
'Cause if we never take another dip again
We'll never know the joy that failure brings

I understand, but I gotta remind myself
That even at my worst I can keep my head
Alone I stand
United we fall apart
One union under God
But not for long,
One union under God
But not for long, thankfully
