Rachel Platten – Don't Wanna Be Here lyrics

Shut up, you don't have to say anything
It was my fault, my fault all along
I dig in my heels and I can't let it go
I just feel like this city's not my home

My heart is a cage
And my bones feel so strange

Do I have to breakdown to breakthrough?
Get lost to get where I need to?
Is this really what I agreed to?
Right now, nothing's clear
And I just know I don't want to be here
And I just know I don't want to be here

Said I'm scaring you, well now you know how I feel
Shaking, I'm shaking like salt
If I'm stable as a stick of dynamite
I'm sorry if I sometimes go off

The streets are quicksand
I would stay but I can't

Do I have to breakdown to breakthrough?
Get lost to get where I need to?
Is this really what I agreed to?
Right now, nothing's clear
And I just know I don't want to be here

I'll come back, I will return a better friend
No tremors, no tidal waves then

Do I have to breakdown to breakthrough?
Get lost to get where I need to?
Is this really what I agreed to?
Right now, nothing's clear
And I just know I don't want to be here

Do I have to breakdown to breakthrough?
Get lost to get where I need to?
Is this really what I agreed to?
Right now, nothing's clear
And I just know I don't want to be here
And I just know I don't want to be here
