lyrics

We're blood bound
So keep me closer to the bone
Please believe me, I never meant
Some of the things I've said and done

And I know, that some choices have been mistakes
Now I'm far too old to live here
But I don't know how to change

And it makes me wonder
Have I wasted my youth

Maybe I'm just different
I somehow formed another shape
My siblings evergreen in sunshine
Whilst I wither in their shade

And in their shadows
Of achievements and succes
I am the black sheep of our family
A failure never the less

And it makes me wonder
Have I wasted my youth

All my teenage years
I've built, built this wall of fear
Nobody wants me here
You judge my deepest flaw
For looking for the easy way out

And I know I'm not your choice
I'm just a matter of fact
But the fact is
I never wanted this anymore than you did

And I tried, but I'm tierd
(Not at all, So am I)
Of never quite getting there
To measure up to
(You owe it to yourself)
Could I be good enough
(To be strong)
For all of you
How could measure up to you
I'm sorry I don't have anything left to give
I just want fall through the floor
(Suit yourself)
And give up
(Walk away)
And give in
(From us all)
To my condition
(And draw the curtains for your eyes)
You carried me for so long
Don't think I can walk on my own
I can walk on my own

Blood ties, ties our floods together
But I am, alone out at sea
Abandoned by my shattered family
Crashing like waves, all over me
