About "What If" album:
This page contains lyrics from the album
"What If" by EarlyRise, which consists of 8 songs.
Hiding quietly in my room
I was hoping you wouldn't be back so soon
Felt my heart pounding as I crawled
Slowly on the floor
Felt your presence piercing through
Guess I was never good enough for you
Your shouting made me feel so small
Step out of the shade, and I'm not afraid anymore
Yes, I declare war
I won't fall asleep, I'll stay up and keep singing this song
Until I prove you wrong
Will you ever realize it's not my fault?
Should care about your situation, but I don't
'Cause if you think of it, you brought this on yourself
Can't blame me for the wrong choices that you made
You smile at me from the side of your eye,
Like we're sharing some kind of joke.
While I sit here and watch your head
Go up in smoke.
Looking around for someone to sell to,
Now, that's part of your game.
So you're gonna kill yourself,
Don't make them do the same.
Leave Me Alone
Don't tell me to stop,
No, you don't exactly set a good example.
Stay right where you are while you criticize me,
I can't bear your lecture.
I think I've figured out
What you're all about,
So maybe you should leave me the f#! k alone.
Talk about your plans,
Funny how in just one moment,
Things can turn upside down.
Wish I could turn back time to
When you were still around.
And all I've got left is memories,
Of your face smiling at me.
You used to say that we should all just
Handle this differently.
We're slipping down, we're climbing up,
Seems like we've reached a dead end.
We keep fighting, keep making up,
Looks like we're going nowhere.
Doesn't help when you try to cover it up,
You know we're growing apart.
Doesn't help when you lose your mind completely,
You just push me farther away.
For so many years you were locked away
And you never really got the opportunity
To blossom, and pass on your masterpiece creation
They're so ignorant, they don't understand
You were always longing for a chance
To abandon this wasteland and never have to pretend
And you're the same as everybody else
I fell into place, I feel much better,
I don't remember a thing.
Would it make you think of me as normal again?
I found a way to climb up this ladder,
Won't stay down here for long.
Would it make me worthy in your eyes?
