mental lyrics – courtney jaye

on this lonely stretch of solitude
i’m thinking ’bout the things that i never do
all the promises that i made to you
well, they’re just words, they’re only words

it took so long for me to recognize
all this confidence that i couldn’t find
i used to dim my light, so you could shine
and that’s what hurts, it really hurts

i wanna do everything right
but everything’s going wrong
i wanna feel heaven on earth
but nothing ever lasts that long

baby, i’m goin’ mental
so much potential
i can’t stand to watch it withering away

it’s out of control now
it’s getting old now
and i can’t afford to waste another day

well, dust keeps piling up on the window sill
man, if you don’t know by now, i guess you never will
but there’s no benefit in standing still
not for you, no, no, and not for me

but i wanna make everything work
something’s just gotta give
i gotta start putting me first
it’s killing me the way it is

baby, i’m goin’ mental
so much potential
i can’t stand to watch it withering away

it’s out of control now
it’s getting old now
and i can’t afford to waste another day

i wanna do everything right
but everything’s going wrong
i wanna feel heaven on earth
and nothing ever lasts that long

baby, i’m goin’ mental
so much potential
i can’t stand to watch it withering away

it’s out of control now
it’s getting old now
and i can’t afford to waste another day
