I used to kill myself to feel like I was alive,
But since I lost you friend, I learned it was a lie…
All those walls we build so tall and wide,
It’s a coward’s way to be alive.
Well… the last few years I’ve been going out of my mind,
trying to grow up but not feel old at the same time…
I hid the pain that lived inside…
I was hopeless; you gave me a reason to fight.
I always wake up on the road,
singing songs about going home.
I’m a hypocrite and a ghost,
I haunt the cities between the coasts,
so I know that the ones that we love never really leave,
so I’ll see you in the rearview… smiling from the backseat.
We’re for the ones who scream love…loud at the night.
There’s a darkness, but there’s also a light.
All these memories get jumbled,
like some book that I read…
as a kid and could imagine a thousand ways for it to end,
but I know you can’t shed dead skin without shedding a few tears,
so all those times I wanna disappear, I know you’ll be right here.
…and to the wolves I’ll scream love… in your name like a flame.
You taught me to never be ashamed.
