Format – The First Single lyrics

I can't stand to think about a heart so big it hurts like hell.
Oh my god I gave my best, but for three whole years to end like this.
Well do you want to fall apart? I can't stop if you can't start.
Do you want to fall apart?
I could if you can try to fix what I've undone.
Cause I hate what I've become.

You know me, or you think you do.
You just don't seem to see
I've been waiting all this time to be something I can't define.
So let's cause a scene, clap our hands and stomp our feet, or something.
Yeah something.
I've just got to get myself over me.

I could stand to do without all the people I have left behind.
What's the point in going around when it's a straight line baby, a straight line down?
So let's make a list of who we need.
It's not much if anything.
Let's make a list of who we need, and we'll throw it away.
'Cause we don't need anyone.
No, we don't need anyone.


And I hate what I've become.

You know the night life is just not for me.
'Cause all you really need are a few good friends.
I don't want to go out and be on my own.
You know they started something I can't stand.
You leave for the city.
Well count me out.
'Cause all this time is wasted on everything I've done.

[Chorus x2]

I've just got to get myself over me.
Over me
Over me
