I got in way over my head and deep into something
You got away with the words and left me with nothing
What could I say? What could I do?
I fall to pieces over the truth

I've been a mess, lousy at best
Hard in the head, hole in the chest

Now everything seems somewhere in between
Awake and a dream
The good and the bad, whatever we had
Are just memories

How long will this last? Stuck in the past
Making excuses, too proud to ask
Why can't I manage? It doesn't seem right
Carrying baggage ain't traveling light

And if there is an upside
To getting this let down
You can't get any lower
When you're already on the ground

Looking forward to not looking back
Ahead is much better
The look on my face has nothing to do
With you whatsoever

I'm getting by, I'm doing fine
Most of these days you don't cross my mind
Whenever you do, I don't lose my head
I don't fall to pieces, and I don't regret

And if there is an upside
To getting this let down
You can't get any lower
When you're already on the ground

Crying in the gutter is a good way to drown
No one wants to fall and not make a sound
Lying to yourself makes you look like a clown

And if there is an upside
To getting this let down
You can't get any lower
When you're already on the ground

Crying in the gutter is a good way to drown
No one wants to fall and not make a sound
Lying to yourself makes you look like a clown

Crying in the gutter is a good way to drown
No one wants to fall and not make a sound
Lying to yourself makes you look like a clown

Crying in the gutter is a good way to drown
No one wants to fall and not make a sound
Lying to yourself makes you look like a clown
