Black boots black jeans black beard
Walking down the street in the morning air
Then I light up a cigarette
And put my headphones on
And listened to Van Etten sing
You gotta give out, give up, give out, give up, give out, give up,
give in, give out, give up, give in

Give in, give in, give in

I was better than I felt in years
Then I looked to the streets
And I looked to my fears
I know something was going round these tears
I was hurting people, so close to me
I spent ten long years feeling so fucking bad
I know you cheated on me
But I cheated on myself
I was falling way out
When she sent those pictures off
And I knew it wasn't me
And I knew it wasn't her
And I knew it wasn't me
And I knew it wasn't her
You gotta give up, give out, give in, give up, give out, give in,
give up, give out, give in, give in

You gotta heal

Take it further back to darker times
When I drank too much and I took too much
I lied to all my friends about who I was
But Caitlin listen to me now I'm all grown up
I spent two long years just losing my mind
Thank you Kristian for keeping me clean
And we're painted like the warriors...

You gotta heal...

    Song FactI believe the first stanza refers to the Sharon Van Etten song "Give Out". The lyrics are:

    "It's not because I always give up /
    It might be I always give out"
