Counterparts – Sinking lyrics

This is the only thing I have worth holding onto
I have condensed my past to fit the lines on the pages
That no one will ever see
But still I fight, day after day
‘Cause this is all I’ve ever wanted my life to be and I push everything I’ve ever loved away to keep myself from sinking
To keep myself from sinking
To keep myself from sinking

If I find the bad in everything, I can never be attached
I’m trying to find a balance
I'm trying to find a way
And every choice I’ve ever made
Brings me anywhere but home
But I’ve welcomed sacrifice with open arms
And I will never regret my decision
This is the only thing that makes me feel alive
Makes me feel alive

I’ve simply been searching for the right place to rest my head
I’m searching for common ground between all that I am
And all that you need me to be
I’ve seen a future and want nothing to do with it
A constant campaign to impress those who never ever cared
I’m struggling but I won’t allow myself to sink

You know where to find me
I keep my composure and assume my place
In front of the people I love most
You’re the reason why we’re here
I’m struggling
But I won’t allow myself to sink
I’m struggling
But I won’t allow myself to sink
