I Do it All the Time

lyrics

If you are quite through tearing out my heart, I would like you to leave. If you’ve had enough ripping out my tongue and turning every word I say into more reasons to stay silent. You can keep what is left of my self-respect, it wasn’t working anyway. You can care for the part of me that lives inside of you, or you can watch it burn.

See I don’t know if I will ever get it back or if I’d even miss it anyway, but for what it’s worth, I’d rather live with the regret than lie to myself anyway. I keep it out of my mind. I do it all the time. So have it out on me, because I can take it. Lay it on my back and I swear you won’t break it but don’t come around here anymore saying that I owe you. I don’t owe you anything at all.

I’m not quite through being done with the rest of my life but there is just so much you can’t control. So I won’t willingly carry the burden of thinking my life has more value then what I can earn when I am awake and what I forget before I go to sleep. I’m always looking for company, me and you we can tear this thing open. When I fall, for surely I will stumble, you can carry me home for I have lost my way.

But I don’t know if I will ever get it back or if I’d even miss it anyway, but for what it’s worth, I’d rather live with the regret than lie to myself anyway. I keep it out of my mind. I do it all the time. So have it out on me, because I can take it. Lay it on my back and I swear you won’t break it but don’t come around here asking for more than I can give.

The only thing I know with any kind of certainty is none of us can do this alone, so if you help me try and stand and you look me in the eyes I swear I’ll do my best to never let you go. I keep you inside my mind. I do it all the time. So have it out on me because I can take it, lay it on my back I swear you won’t break it and please come around here anytime, we always miss you.
