don't wanna be here, repeating a new year
don't wanna let you down.
cause i'm in a new town, surrounded by let downs
i don't wanna let you down.
and i'm alright, i'm gonna make it, even if i gotta fake it
i’m alright, i'm gonna make it even if i gotta break it
i’m alright
i’m in a new place and you're now in my face...
i don't wanna let you down.
and i need my distance, cause i'm feeling selfish
i don't wanna let you down
and i'm alright, i'm gonna make it, even if i gotta fake it
i’m alright, i'm gonna make it, even if i gotta break it
i’m alright
i'm just a memory of everything i'll ever be
i’m gonna make it now
always let you down
always let you down
always let you down
i’m alright, i'm gonna make it, even if i gotta fake it
i’m alright, i'm gonna make it, even if i gotta break it
i’m alright
don’t wanna be here repeating a new year
(i'm alright)
don’t wanna let you down
(and i'm alright i'm gonna make it)
cause i'm in a new town, surrounded by let downs
(even if i gotta fake it, i'm alright)
i don't wanna let you down

    General CommentThis song is about being in a new environment to get away from someone, but they seem to find you, and you don't want to hurt them, or let them down by not being able to give them something. But, you accept it, and you learn to live with it.

    General Commenti think tim pagnotta wrote this about having to move a lot as a child. it's about pretending to be happy not only to other people so you don't hurt them, but also to yourself.

    General Commentto me this is a song about running from your problems and telling yourself that your problem could be fix if u changed that really has nothing to do with it (ei i would be happier with the fact that i don't like who i am if i changed where i lived~tho no one thinks up front like that but deep down they do...) but not wanting to hurt the ppl that will get hurt if u run..or thinking that if u stay you'll end up hurting them...
