I felt the air lift from my lungs, I sighted
I'm deep in debt and further behind,
With everything I should have been by now
You clenched your hand tight into mine
And told me that I'd be just fine
I didn't believe you, I never tried to

And all that's left is discarded remnants
Overthink like it's hung over your head
You try to beat it, end up defeatist
It's just a mindset and I wish I could fight it
Am I the only one who feels like they're burning bridges?
I left this and moved onto the next one,
I burnt it down cause I'm far too headstrong
You see through the things I don't
It makes me feel a little less alone
And one day
You'll find
I'm not here to waste time

And as the sun engulfs my skin
I know that warmth is wearing thin
And that everything we do
Is just a matter of perspective
I dug my head from out this hole
I looked around at all I know
And saw my problems weren't real

And all that's left is discarded remnants
Overthink like it's hung over your head
You try to beat it, end up defeatist
It's just a mindset and I wish I could fight it
Am I the only one who feels like they're burning bridges?
I left this and moved onto the next one,
I burnt it down cause I'm far too headstrong
You see through the things I don't
It makes me feel a little less alone
And one day
You'll find
I'm not here to waste time

Our time was spent bringing means to an end
As we grew into our skin
We traded time, patience and confidence
For our visions growing thin
And under pressure I tried to be
The same person that people see
And I guess that's the difference,
That's the difference

That's the difference
When you're working with distance
I guess that's the difference
When you're working,
When you're working
