The Wonder Years – Local Man Ruins Everything lyrics
[Intro]

[Verse 1]
The fountain was off
This is the first time I’ve been back to the city in months
I’m trying to hold it together but irony’s found cracks in the foundation

[Verse 2]
And you know
I try so hard to be some great white hope
But I can’t shake the feeling that tonight I’m gonna end up shaking in bed alone

[Chorus 1]
I’m not a self-help book; I’m just a fucked up kid
(I had to take my own advice and I did)
Now I’m waiting for it to sink in

[Chorus 2]
Expect me standing tall, back against the wall
Cause what I learned was
It’s not about forcing happiness;
It’s about not letting the sadness win

[Refrain]
I don’t have roses in the closet
But I’ve got pictures in a drawer
It’s everything left in me
Not to stare at them anymore
I walked upstairs and shaved my beard
I felt like I was holding sadness here
(I was holding sadness here)

[Chorus 1]
I’m not a self-help book; I’m just a fucked up kid
(I had to take my own advice and I did)
Now I’m waiting for it to sink in

[Chorus 2]
Expect me standing tall, back against the wall
Cause what I learned was
It’s not about forcing happiness;
It’s about not letting the sadness win

[Refrain]
I don’t have roses in the closet
But I’ve got pictures in a drawer
It’s everything left in me
Not to stare at them anymore

[Outro]
I’m not a self-help book; I’m just a fucked up kid
(I’m not a self-help book; I’m just a fucked up kid)
I’m not a self-help book; I’m just a fucked up kid
(I’m not a self-help book; I’m just a fucked up kid)
