Jakalope – Tell Me Why lyrics

Tracin' the steps that I take
Feelin' mistakes that are fake
Makin' excuses like imaginary friends run away
To where I've already been
To where I already am
So tell me tell me it'll work out so I'll be 'round again
I look inside I'm surprised at what I see in my eyes
So tell me tell me was I there when I was taught how to lie?
I thought I'd chase paradise but I'll just set off a lie
So tell me tell me did I die when I was taught how to lie?
Don't tell me what it'll be because it's all in degrees
And by degrees what I mean is you don't see what I see
So is this falling apart or are these pieces of me?
Is this a nightmare to be or am I building a dream?

When did this come to be?
When did things pick up speed?
Tiein' down my living needs
Tiein' down my living needs
Oh ohh
Don't know why (don't know why)
Don't know why (don't know why)
Don't know why I am here
All that I've forgotten is only stoppin to remind me
Only I (Only I)
Know that I (Know that I)
Only I can be my only
Odd sacrifice
I suffered twice and all that I did
Was beleive..

Its funny how life can be the circles dance around me
Drawing a reminder of what I've done and who I've become
Sleepin' my days without dreams, Wakin' a night without sleep
Missing the truth to lie the promises I heard I would keep
I'm lost in my paradise, the walls have built in my life
So tell me tell me will I die if I forget how to lie?

When did this come to be?
When did things pick up speed?
Tiein' down my living needs
Tiein' down my living needs
Oh ohh
Don't know why (Don't know why)
Don't know why (Don't know why)
Don't know why I am here
All that I've forgotton is only stoppin to remind me
Only I (Only I)
Know that I (Know that I)
Only I can be my only
Odd sacrifice
I suffered twice and all that I did
Was beleive..
