Real Friends – Anchor Down lyrics

I don't really think that I'm ready for another Chicago winter
So you can stop making my bones feel cold
I swear that emptiness lives inside your chest
You're the reason you fell far away from what brought out your best
Don't get me wrong, I wish a lot of things were the way they used to be
The streets that used to make me feel alive just make me feel alone
The holes in the wall get bigger every year

It's hard to think that some people in this world look at me with the same eyes as yours
I've been breaking all ten fingers for you and you wouldn't even lift one up for me
Appreciation's something you lost in the dirt that's on your hands and knees

But I'm never gonna be just a hole in the wall
You can anchor down your feet and say fuck the past and everyone that dragged you here
I'm not putting myself on a pedestal
You need to stand up for yourself and who you claim you used to be

It's hard to think that some people in this world look at me with the same eyes as yours
I've been breaking all ten fingers for you and you wouldn't even lift one up for me
Appreciation's something you lost in the dirt that's on your hands and knees

Anchor down your feet, say fuck the past and everyone that dragged you here
Just stand up for yourself and who you claim you used to be

It's hard to think that some people in this world look at me with the same eyes as yours
I've been breaking all ten fingers for you and you wouldn't even lift one up for me
Appreciation's something you lost in the dirt that's on your hands and knees
