Lyrics

Locked down
Hiding your emotions
Made you feel alright
I won’t ever understand
At best I’ll be feeling sorry for you
Maxed out
Never had a nation
Took me by surprise
Damn that devil of a noose
Got a hold on me swinging harder every night

I’ll never know how it feels to be you
I only wish you had told me the truth a whole lot sooner
I always knew there was something not right
I only wish you had told me everything about that night

Crash land
Smothered in devotion
No one seemed to know
I’ve got layers underneath
There’s a chance this could bring me closer to you
Gone dark
Darker than the ransom
Coursing through my veins
Carve me out of something new
‘Cause the truth doesn’t fit the canvas anymore

I’ll never know how it feels to be you
I only wish you had told me the truth a whole lot sooner
I always knew there was something not right
I only wish you had told me everything about that night

I’m terrified of the horizon
I never know quite where to look when I’m alone
I’m terrified of the horizon
I never know quite where to look when you’re around

I’ll never know how it feels to be you
I only wish you had told me the truth a whole lot sooner
I always knew there was something not right
I only wish you had told me everything
