Dragging my feet, biting my tongue
Kicking my heels, getting this done
Getting you out of the way
Saving my face, moving at my own pace
Ruining my name, just for your sake

Dragging my feet, biting my tongue
Kicking my heels, getting this done
Getting you out of the way
Saving my face, moving at my own pace
Ruining my name, just for your sake

Learning how to find your way, learning what to say
Learning when to fight and when to run away
Stop just thinking about it
Stop just talking about it, and fucking go

Saying I'll change, faking that pain, shifting the blame
Stating my aim for the first time
Settle, far from home
Settle far from home, never to return
Settle, far from home

For the first time, I am ashamed

(Settle, far from home, never to return
Settle, far from home…)
