Riverside – Anathema lyrics

I don't get a chance to lie down, always hounded around by everyone
Leave me alone don't wanna deal today
Don't wanna deal today

Put the phone down back down she said
It's in my head and it's aching, it's aching, it's aching

I'm 18
And I'll do it my way
I'm down here, on the rooftop, burning out my lungs
And I'll do it my way

Wide eyed, trail it back inside,
A broken door to the 14th floor and I'll look down idle mind.
Don't lose face, don't lose your dignity
I'll fail this once more, tiptoe through my front door

Lets forget who we are
Lets forget who we want to be
Burned out fire in your eye
It's all that you see
