Hey, so now I see how it is
Life is contemporary, ordinary
I don’t want it breaking but I’ll say
My darling defeatalist
The deeper we heap the shit the more we buried
Recapitulate already

Because I don't think I can make it on my own
And then I don’t think I can make it on my own

I…. hate how quickly you could forget
Cause your love's are temporary, arbitrary artifice
For those unwary
I…. lay here as I’m gripping my chest
Because I feel kind of guilty
When I try to shut it out
I drown in drugs and alcohols

Because I don’t think I can make it on my own
And then I don't think I can make it on my own
And cause I know my love lies naked in his arms
Ohh, I hear her moan and I can't take it
Take it, take it

Oh, I can’t make it on my own
Oh, its hard to take cause as you know
That although we’re over now
(from miles away I still hear the words you think)
There is no way around but…
(a suicide would end hearing you sing)

So now you see how it is
Cause life is just temporary
Overbearing, hurts to care of aching but you'd stay
Till you feel kinda filthy
Well you feel kind of guilty
When you try to grasp the straws
Of all my faults, you won’t recall

Because you'll know that I can make it on my own
And that I don’t think I could make it all my own
Cause you said it was love as you laid naked in my arms
Well if this is your love then you can take it take it baby
