not alive lyrics – 8 stops 7

what’s wrong with me, i hear her say
forget everything, and what it means to me
i’m not alive, that’s what she means
i hate to disappoint her, i only need some room to breathe

what’s wrong with me, what’s wrong with you
must we compete, who speaks the truth
you can have it all, if it serves you well
as long as i leave with myself

chorus:
i’m wide awake, i was dead before today
if you make it till tomorrow, see it works both ways
i will not try to apologize, for what i know is right

another chance wrapped up again
makes it difficult for you to comprehend
just give it time, time’s all we’ve had
i loved you as a child, now i must leave as a man

(chorus)

it’s so easy to be near me
when all i’ve said gets lost between
no, i don’t know what you mean
it’s so easy to believe me
maybe i shouldn’t, yes i can
you know exactly who i am

i shouldn’t fake this thing
i’ve mistaken
for love, and i need to set her free
let her walk away
and leave with the best part of me

what’s wrong with me, what’s wrong with you
must we compete, who speaks the truth
you can have it all, if it serves you well
as long as i leave with myself

(chorus)

call it
something
that she needs to be
call it
something
that she needs to find in me
