Don't tell me then
How heavy I am
I ruined everything
I've gotten used to the sound now
And it's all I know
It's all you want
It thickens me up
To keep my head down my eyes shut

Were overwhelmed
It's all we've got
Cause I've overthought
These songs of (?)

It's been so long
This is what you wanted
Its time I never started
Its been so long
Its been so long
It doesnt't matter anyway
Cover everything

I spent so long
Repeating all my lines
Picking the right words
To convince myself that i tried
Don't sing me songs
Im your ticking tongue
Cause i never liked your voice
Yeah it always came out wrong

I'm overwhelmed
Its all we've got
Cause i've overthought
These songs of (?)

It's been so long
This is what you wanted
Its time I never started
Its been so long
Its been so long
Doesnt't matter anyway
Cover everything

To finally feel the daylight here
Well be perfect soon now
To finally feel the daylight here
We'll be perfect now
And you can look at me the same way again

Im overwhelmed
Its all I've got
Cause I'm over sold
And over bought
Cause breaking up
Is what all of this creates

Its been so long
This is what you wanted
Its time you never started
Its been so long
Doesnt't matter anyway
Come on cover me
Could you cover me
Will you cover me now?

Its been so long
As long as you want
Is it all I started
Its been so long
Its been so long
Doesnt't matter anyway
Come on cover everything
