I'm not trying to
To tell you what I think that I deserve
And all I ever wanted to
Was to feel alive and see it through my own eyes

I'm not saying that you have to
Fully agree with where I'm coming from
But what do I get?
A perception check
I'd rather die by living alone

(I don't want to believe) If this is all I need
(I don't want to believe) That this is all

And I don't know how
How to break this to you
I'll try my best and
I know it won't be easy
For you to accept this
I can't, I won't
Live how you expected

Did you think that it would force me through
In point of fact I've done nothing wrong
Security's not what I'm aiming for
I'd rather take a chance than give up on something more

(I don't want to believe) If this is all I need
(I don't want to believe) That this is all

And I don't know how
How to break this to you
I'll try my best and
I know it won't be easy
For you to accept this
I can't, I won't
Live how you expected

And I don't know how
How to break this to you
I'll try my best and
I know it won't be easy
For you to accept this
I can't, I won't
Live how you expected

And this doesn't feel
Much like a home
And I'm trying my best
To find my way back

And this doesn't feel
Much like a home
And I'm trying my best
To find my way back home

And I don't know how
How to break this to you
I'll try my best
I know it won't be easy
For you to accept this
I can't, I won't
Live how you expected

And if you could be
More supportive than you have ever will but
I know it won't be easy
For you to accept this
I can't, I won't
Live how you expected

    General CommentOkay, first off. On this:

    I'm not saying that you have to
    Full agree with where I'm coming from
    But what do I get?
    A perception check
    I'd rather die by living alone
    I think it's 'fully agree'. Second thing, I think the 'I won't believe' is actually 'I don't wan't to believe'. That's what I hear, at least.
    I love this song. The new EP is GREAT!
