Another starry-eyed stare
that starts from your shoes
and goes up to your hair, yeah
Nothing I can say
could make you look at me
and feel the same way

And I can say it's unfair
but I'll keep to myself
and continue to wear this mask
I’ll hide my purest form away
So believe when I say

I’m the one you're looking for
I’m the one you need
I’m begging you
Come to your senses too
Do you need the blood I bleed?

And is it worth getting older
cause now it’s the end
and nothing's working out
I swore that this would happen
again and again and again

And I can say it's unfair
but I'll keep to myself
and continue to wear this mask
I’ll hide my purest form away
So believe when I say

I’m the one you're looking for
I’m the one you need
I’m begging you
Come to your senses too
Do you need the blood I bleed?

I’m the one you're looking for
I’m the one you need
I’m begging you
Come to your senses too
Do you need
oh, do you need...

The blood that I bleed from each vein every night
All this is now one familiar sight
Yeah, weighed down in all my problems I’m sinking too deep
Should I make a promise I know I can't keep?
And did you know that desire's the reason we live
It's happiness, a gift I wish someone would give me
But that time, it seems, is so far away
So here's to life and believe when I say...

I’m the one you're looking for
I’m the one you need
I’m begging you
Come to your senses too
Do you need the blood I bleed?

We're all tied up in a search for attention
somewhere along the lines did I mention
If we come together with good intentions
we can put an end to this fucked up regression

    General CommentHSFH should be back together FOREVER.
    Although ska+emo (whether HSFH liked to be classified that or not) is a great genre that should not be missed.

    Check out bands like them:
    We Are The Union
    The Prize Fight
    Day By Day
    Old Rx Bandits
