i only feel like i'm asking when i'm asking
i'm only asking 'cause i don't have enough of these things that i want
oh these things that i want
i find i always use them up
i only feel like i'm crying when i'm crying
i'm only crying 'cause the tears ain't so much
i can't sit here all alone
i'm so scared when i'm at home
i'll find a world that's right for me
i can feel it when the lights come on in the city from my house
and i can feel it when the lights go down on me


i only feel like i'm slipping when i'm slipping
i'm only slipping 'cause it hurts in my blood
i can't change who i am
i don't have another plan
why did i ever try to lie?
i only feel like i'm lying when i'm lying
i'm only lying 'cause the truth hurts so much
i can smile through the pain
but i know it doesn't change
oh god i've torn out my insides
i can feel it when the lights come on in the city from my house
and i can feel it when the lights go down on me


it only feels like i'm asking when i'm asking
i'm only asking because i don't have enough of these things that i want
oh these things that i want
i find i always use them up
