"This is the song I didn't want to write for a year or so. I guess I was in denial and didn't want to admit it."

Have a listen.


v1:
I applied
for a new job
it's a sign
of surrender
and it's proof
that I have failed.
It's my way
of giving up
on this town
and on the job
that I do have.

v2:
I moved here
2 years ago.
I thought I
could make it work.
I still don't know anyone
outside of my shitty job
but that job
is why I have
stayed so long.

C:
Why stay for a check?
Why spend another year
pretending things will change?
Why stay for a check?
Why waste another summer
walking up and down the streets
as a way to kill some time?
Why stay for a check?
Why stay for a check?

v3:
Why am I
terrified to
leave this place?
Yeah it's secure
but I need
a place that has
room for growth.
This place has no
potential.
Staying would be
a mistake.

c

v4:
This next year
is going to
define my
entire life.
I don't want
to mess it up.
So I hope
I"m doing right.
I don't want
to **** it up.
I don't want
to **** it up.
I don't want
to **** it up.
I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given.
