I wake up
And the day feels
Broken
I tilt my head
Im trying to get an angle
cause the evening
Ive always longed for
It could still happen

How do I master
The perfect day
Six glasses of water
Seven phonecalls

If you leave it alone
It might just happen
Anyway

Its not up to you
Oh it never really was
Its not up to you
Oh it never really was
Its not up to you
Well it never really was
Its not up to you

If you wake up
And the day feels
Ah broken
Just lean into the crack
(just lean into the crack)
And it will tremble
Ever so nicely
Notice
How it sparkles
Down there

I can decide
What I give
But its not up to me
What I get given
Unthinkable surprises
About to happen
But what they are

Its not up to you
Well it never really was
Its not up to you
Oh it never really was
Its not up to you
Oh it never really was
Its not up to you
Oh, me, share
Its not up to you
Its not up to you
Oh, it never really was
Its not up to you
Well, it never really was
Its not up to you
Its not up to you
Its not up to you
Its not up to you

Theres too much
Clinging
To peak
Theres too much
Pressure
