about

Sometimes, we don’t know how good we’ve got it. The reasons for this are myriad – habit, ignorance, chemical imbalance – it’s the hardest thing in the world to dig yourself out of a hole.

lyrics

I know this shit’s hard
Living with me’s putting in the hard yards.
I’ve got it good it’s plain to see
In fact, how much better can it be.

I’m trying to pull my weight
If you want the truth, sometimes that’s too great.
If love could change me, it would have by now.
I can see the what, but I don’t know the how.

I’m staring down my demons
To make this thing work,
But they’re cold and cruel
And they try to fool
Me not into believing you.

I’m staring down my demons
To make this thing work
But I need you
To remind me to
Carry on believing you.

Everything I do I feel is no good
If I’d only act more like I should.
When everything you care about is hard to conceive
You need a lot of help to hold that belief.

Every night I try to talk it through
But there’s something missing in me –
How to conquer this sinking feeling –
How to get it through, what matters to me.

If I knew how, to reach past this darkness I’d do it now
But I can’t choose,
There’s dark in me and in you we only can accept it’s true
If I knew how, to reach past this pain I’d do it now
But I can’t choose,
There’s dark in me and in you we never can run from this truth.
