lyrics

it’s been a battle just to wake and greet the day
then they all disappear like sugar in my coffee
a hint of sweetness but the bitterness remains
the acidity devouring my body

but i am learning to let go
of everything i tried to hold
too long ‘cause they all explode
like roman candles

i used to feel everything like a flame
but now it’s a struggle just to feel anything
i watch the world from a window on a hill
everyone moving as i’m standing still

but i am learning to let go
of everything i tried to hold
too long ‘cause they all explode
like roman candles
