The places I remember
are getting worn and withered
My heart's the picket fences
it needs a little mending

Am I not everything you thought I should be?

The faces in the picture
have blurred just like the real ones
My skin is the exposure
it's gotten so much older

But am I not everything you thought I could be?

This lifelong competition
still reeks of repetition
I've failed at everything I've tried to do
my life plays in front of you
And now I've realised
there's nothing left for me to hide
I've opened myself enough for the world to see my guts

Where are you now? And where have you been?
Everything and everyone, everything and everyone
must come to an end

The children in the schoolyard
have grown so old and tired
The shift is almost over
I'm praying I don't get fired
Life isn't everything I thought it should be

The bills left on the table
would be paid if I was able to
work a few more hours
My life has grown so sour
because I'm not everything
I thought I could be

This lifelong competition
still reeks of repetition
I've failed at everything I've tried to do
My life plays in front of you
and now I've realised
there's nothing left for me to hide
I've opened myself enough for the world to see my guts

Where are you now? And where have you been?
Everything and everyone, everything and everyone
must come to an end

The places I remember
are getting worn and withered
My heart's the picket fences
it needs a little mending
But am I not everything you thought I should be?
