lyrics

you used to be happier
i know that we are searching for someone to outlast us
you used to be happier
i can't believe you put up with what you put up with
to keep from being lonely
but i know you
you believe (in) the way a crowded room fills with energy
me, i just see no place to breathe
when you are wide-eyed, i am asleep
saw your face from across the room
you looked miserable, i looked confused
how'd we get to the point where we feel so alone in such close company?
you used to be happier
i know that we are searching for someone to pass the time with
now you seem happier
i can't believe you put up with that shit for so long
but i know you
you believe in everyone else, i just believe in myself
so stubborn it seems, sometimes, to me
i'm still drowning, just treading my feet
saw your face from across the room
we're both still miserable, so what's the use?
so selfish, it seems, is the life for me
i won't get shocked by static electricity
