lyrics

I’ve felt it on the sidelines
An ache I can’t remove
Perceived as unconditional
Because I’ve tethered me to you
I tried to pull the weight
But you refused to lift a hand
And when I question it you say
“It’s just the way I am”

You wanna blame it
Oh, you wanna blame it
On roots that keep you in the ground
But you can change it
I know you can change it
You have to pull yourself out
Don't try to blame this
Oh, don’t try to blame this
On the badge of wounds you wear so proud
You are the one who decides
How this will turn out

I see it play out on repeat
The people that I love
Become the people I can't reach
And in my attempt to empathize
I can't help but to internalize
End up taking on the crosses
They can't seem to bear alone
But now my arms have fallen weak
And I can’t even pick up the phone

You wanna blame it
Oh, you wanna blame it
On roots that keep you in the ground
But you can change it
I know you can change it
You have to pull yourself out
Don't try to blame this
Oh, don’t try to blame this
On the badge of wounds you wear so proud
You are the one who decides
How this will turn out

You’re losing us
You’re losing me
You’re losing touch
