surface

everybody’s got a secret
i ain’t tellin’ a soul
overlooked never heard

if you really learn the words
you confirm what you already know
no i shouldn't keep quiet
like i’ve done for so long
don’t wanna have to lie
don’t wanna have to hide it
cause it feels so wrong
 
heart beating out my chest
in my head there's a mess
shutting down to decompress
cover up the evidence
help was around but i
just shut it out and i
wish the old me could see me now
 
all i’m showin is the surface
i’m done trying to make the pieces perfect
if i go, how will i know
if everything that i’ve been putting in

was worth it
so it goes unspoken, who do i become
when the mirrors broken
they can’t see, it ain’t me
close my eyes and i’m left wide open
close my eyes and i’m left wide open

 

as the day grows darker
start to miss the sun
trace the lines from before

then you tally up the score
just to find out nobody’s won
 
sitting on the curb
tryna find the right words
to tell my heart when it hurts
cause i know its seen the worse
but i never allow for time
to slow me down and i
wish the old me could see me now
 
all i’m showin is the surface
i’m done trying to make the pieces perfect
if i go, how will i know
if everything that i’ve been putting in

was worth it
so it goes unspoken, who do i become
when the mirrors broken
they can’t see, it ain’t me
close my eyes and i’m left wide open
close my eyes and i’m left wide open

 

underneath everyone there’s a side they don’t show

it's often invited when i’m all alone

i learn to embrace it cause that’s how we grow

i don’t have to face it cause i can say no

 

all i’m showin is the surface

i’m done trying to make the pieces perfect

if i go, how will i know

if everything that i’ve been putting in was worth it

so it goes unspoken, who do i become

when the mirrors broken

they can’t see, it ain’t me

close my eyes and i’m left wide open

close my eyes and i’m left wide open
