City Of Ashes – Recovery lyrics

I stare back at the changes, where I wanted to be by now
Is writing songs of happiness, and having myself figured out
But I'm just a disappointment, it becomes clear to me
When this winter's over, I'll still be here, choking on uncertainty

I've grown to know, there's no future for me
It's just about the time it took to give up on our fantasies
Back up, give out, 'cause I can hardly breathe
This pressure's growing in my head, and I can hardly see

This is the journey of recovery
The loss of all I swore to keep so near
And that my fear is that I'll wake one day in purgatory
With all the things I used to love a slowly faded memory

I've grown to know, there's no future for me
It's just about the time it took to give up on our fantasies
Back up, give out, 'cause I can hardly breathe
This pressure's growing in my head, and I can hardly see way up here

Nobody cares if inside I'm dying
As long as the songs in my head keep trying
To convince everyone I'm something I'm not
Under constant pressure my heart might stop

Nobody cares if inside I'm dying
As long as the songs in my head keep trying
To convince everyone I'm something I'm not
Under constant pressure my heart might stop

Nobody cares if inside I'm dying
As long as the songs in my head keep trying

I've grown to know, there's no future for me
It's just about the time it took to give up on our fantasies
Back up, give out, 'cause I can hardly breathe
This pressure's growing in my head, and I can hardly see way up here
