you can say i knew it all along
that you were all i wanted
to know the pain has made you grow strong
the scars inside have made you beautiful
stop breathing for me
you said it's your right to shun dependence
and you shun
and you're scared to accept
someone to share your regrets
when you're aching
you go it alone
when you want to
you take what you need to make you whole
i know it's not easy
i know i can't feel through what you have been and trust
don't come easy
'cause to trust is to depend
and who wants to give up that part of them
you know you can have it
if you want to
i'll find you unrelated, cultivated
when you wake up incubated in me
you're free to leave
if you knew it all along

    "And trust don't come easy, cause to trust is to depend. And who wants to give up that part of them?"

    General CommentI can't really say what this song means to me, because I can't really relate 100%, but I think it is Midtown's best regardless. I think it may be about someone that is scared to commit.

    I love the breakdown at the end, when they bust out the Knew it all alongs. That is my favorite midtown moment by far.
