Too many nights spent in the college union spreading myself thin,
Trying to build a life, or something.
Too many lights left on after midnight, where do I begin?
When everything they say makes me feel like water,
Running on the roof, down into the gutter,
Falling in a drain, they make me feel like rain.

I can’t take this out in a healthy manner.
I don’t deserve the praise or accolades.
(I won’t let this rain define me)
But she will, that’s okay ‘cause I can take it.
I can’t keep holding on, but I’ll pretend.
(Don’t think that I’ve frozen over)
I’ll fake it ’til I make it out alive.

All of my time split between work and sleeping, I’m worried that too soon.
They’ll figure out I’m a fraud, and leave me.
Leave me alone! One day I’ll find courage, one day I’ll be a man.
‘Cause everything she says makes me feel like water,
Filling up her cup, though she wants something stronger,
But she’s trying to abstain, she’s only drinking rain.

I can’t take this out in a healthy manner.
I don’t deserve the praise or accolades.
(I won’t let this rain define me)
But she will, that’s okay ‘cause I can take it.
I can’t keep holding on, but I’ll pretend.
(Don’t think that I’ve frozen over)
I’ll fake it ’til I make it out alive.

And now the waters drowning them, it overflowed the drains.
And her cup is filled with tears, and I am not ashamed.
Finally I am doubting them, I don’t feel any pain.
I’m conquering each of my fears, I know exactly who I am.

I can’t take this out in a healthy manner.
I don’t deserve the praise or accolades.
But she will, but that’s okay, that’s okay.
I can’t keep holding on, I’m holding on.
I’ll fake it ’til I make it out alive.
