lyrics

in the other room, i wonder, "what was that you said?"
because just the other day, i thought, "well, we are such good friends"
and every time things get too easy something just up ahead comes crashing down
just the other day, when i thought how nice it is that i can walk almost anywhere
well, you came, you gave me the fear that i should give up the dream of being anything at all in my small town
and when 100 things tell you to stay, the one that says, "go away," sings loud
and with 100 ways to greet the day you lie in bed and tell yourself, "if you were someone else you'd be awake"
and pretty soon tomorrow is today
in the other room, i wonder, "what was that you said?"
my head is spinning with the shit you talk about all your old friends
and every time i let myself alone too long, the panic creeps on back
how many ways can i tell myself, "i'm not strong enough, or smart enough, or living up to the potential for my life"
how many ways can i deny myself the chance to look on the bright side?
and when 100 things tell you to stay, the one that says, "go away," sings loud
and with 100 ways to greet the day you lie in bed and tell yourself, "if you were someone else you'd be awake"
and pretty soon tomorrow is today
