Faded Red – Sinking Away lyrics

I’m not worthy of your attention; though God knows I try
It’s not easy to fake a smile but it’s not likely you’ll see me try
Don’t think now that I’m crazy, desperate; I’m just stalling for time

CHORUS: Because I’m sinking away, and changing that ain’t easy
And I’m thinking today we should find the time to think, please

I’m the reason this world’s exploding so feel free to call me out
This is all way too damn pathetic to try and cover my tracks, stop your doubts
Don’t think now that I’m shifting the blame, I still know what I did wasn’t right


(2nd x only) Because no matter how hard I try, I’m always asking myself
Why I’m wasting breath on you
It’s cause I’m sinking away and there’s no one to pull me out

If I were half the man you wished that I’d become
This whole mess would not have come undone
If I were half the man you wished that I’d become
We could have saved everyone


There’s no one to pull me out
