I hate the way
that you make me feel
Thats the look on your face
thats how quiet I've been

why do we
try
oh why
why do we
try

You sleep through the night
I sleep through the day
see how we compromise
everythings gonna be okay

why do we
try
oh why
why do we
try

If the weight of this all
is too much by now
the rest of my life
might be too long
I know I've changed
I watched myself slip away
I've compromised
everythings gonna be alright

why do we
try
oh why

If the weight of this all
is too much by now
the rest of my life
might be too long
I know I've changed
I watched myself slip away
I've compromised
everythings gonna be alright
I compromised
I compromised
everything
is gonna be alright
