and now i’m nothing lyrics – the wonder years

“and now i’m nothing”

i can’t help myself
i keep ending up in memorial park
breaking finger nails while i claw at the frozen ground
because as long as i’m home
i can dig up these bones
there’s no point to just letting go
and as long as you’ve known me i’ve been backing out slowly
i won’t end up underneath the snow

this is where it’s been
the manger scene every christmas
next to the cannon
every year someone steals baby jesus
n*body stops them
it’s a nice tradition

i’ll put my life back together in silence
while writing songs on molly’s guitar
and suburbia, stop pushing
i know what i’m doing

so i moved myself and two boxes of things
to the bas*m*nt room at richie’s house
and i’m happy here for now
because i’ve been in search of some steadier footing
or just a place to call home
i know that i’m introspective when broken
but i’ve been spending most of my nights here alone
and that doesn’t scare me like it did a year ago

i’ll put my life back together in silence
while writing songs on molly’s guitar
and suburbia, stop pushing
i know what i’m doing
suburbia, stop pushing
i know what i’m doing
suburbia, stop pushing
i know what i’m doing

i had dreams of myself
as the allen ginsberg of this generation
but without the talent, madness or vision
i guess it’s looking hopeless
we’re a city left digging out cars in unison
and humming like we’ve healed
i know we’ve got miles to go
but i’m putting my shoulder to the wheel
