Backdown before it gets too deep.
Breakdowns and broken homes, lying lifeless at the barkeep’s expense.
As he smiles and he says “50 Cent is a rapper and not a tip.”
So keep your chin up Kate; it’s just a late night scene.

Leave behind everything that held us back, writing out the imperfections, that have led to my insecurities and it’s what’s keeping me from you.

Emptiness spills onto this page.
These words mean nothing, and I can feel the weight of my life begin to drop as this numbness seeps into my veins.

Tap the brakes and late night shakes.
Oh babe, some scars are just too deep.
Look around this empty stage. Break a leg, hit the floor and show me some more
“Backbone,” he said. Laid out on the bed. Just rough it out.

Leave behind everything that held us back, writing out the imperfections, that have led to my insecurities and it’s what’s keeping me from you.

Tap the brakes and late night shakes.
Oh babe, some scars are just too deep.
Look around this empty stage. Break a leg, hit the floor and show me some more
“Backbone,” he said. Laid out on the bed. Just rough it out.

Leave behind everything that held us back, writing out the imperfections, that have led to my insecurities and it’s what’s keeping me from you.
