Lyrics

So is it courage or strength,
and is that what I'm waiting for?
If I could just kill myself,
would it also kill the remorse?
I wanted so badly to catch a break,
but I'm only breaking down.
I'm still here and standing
but if it's up to me, I don't think?.
I'll be?. hanging around

The drink slips down my throat and the burn cures nice and slow all the worst parts I wouldn't want you to see
The only parts left of me now?
Here I am, just a kid without a better plan,
But it's the simple thoughts that haunt me the most
...I never got to see the west coast

Spend my nights just asking why,
would God let me become like this
Was it a joke from the start,
was I s'posed to laugh more at it?
And everyone's quoting the teachers and preachers,
but their words make me feel so alone.
No one ever says that they've had those thoughts in the middle of the night.
No one ever admits that they wanted to take their life

The drink slips down my throat,
and the burn cures nice and slow
All the worst parts I wouldn't want you to see,
the only parts left of me now.
Here I am just a kid without a better plan
But it's the simple thoughts that haunt me the most
... I never got to see the west coast

But it's the life I dreamed I d have,
the love I would find in my grasp,
the words I could share with someone...
Those thoughts keep the breath in my lungs,
the tomorrow my hope will become
fulfilled by a Love that can't be undone...

...And save a wretch like me

So if the drink slips down your throat,
and the burn cures nice and slow,
all the worst parts you wouldn't want me to see,
the same parts I have in me now?.
it scares me, too, we are both this way?.
I feel just like you do.

But when you're by yourself you should know...
...One day we gotta see the west coast.
