Can’t

I’m not sure why this song popped up in my head. I am in a great place, but the words came to me. When words come, you can’t pass them up. I don’t have much else to say besides that, so I’ll go ahead and post the song. The review for the Cold War Kids’ album should be up very soon. Sorry for the delay.


 

I can’t, I won’t

So don’t even try

 

I said, I can’t, I won’t

So don’t even try

 

Nobody will let me

So I will not be telling

There is no way I can do this alone

I need to get out

Of this place, of this house

I need to do it on my own

 

But I’m scared and afraid

Want to go my own way

But I’m making a mess of myself

Don’t tell me I’m wrong

I don’t want to be saved by anyone else

Have to do it for me

But it’s hard to break free

When you’re barely breathing

I just can’t

 

Throwing my life down the drain

Is a common theme of every single day

Want to climb out of the pipes

I go down in flames

Can’t stand my own name

It’s meaning is that I’m screwed up inside

 

I’m scared and afraid

Want to go my own way

But I’m making a mess of myself

Don’t tell me I’m wrong

I don’t want to be saved by anyone else

Have to do it for me

But it’s hard to break free

When you’re barely breathing

I just can’t

 

I’m trying so hard

Can’t you see it’s not enough

Fill my days up with fluff

So you can’t see my real life

And I try

Can you try?

 

I’m scared and afraid

Want to go my own way

But I’m making a mess of myself

Don’t tell me I’m wrong

I don’t want to be saved by anyone else

Have to do it for me

But it’s hard to break free

When you’re barely breathing

I just can’t

 

I can’t, but I want

So someone stand by my side

 

I said I can’t. but I want

So someone stand by my side today
