how come everything
always has its way of turning
right back around again
like that night that she was leaving
and not believing that this time
her fears were all just doubts

i'm never going back
i'm over feeling sorry so just deal with it
there's nothing wrong with that
find comfort in yourself
i know that what you have's not what you are

what you have's not what you are
what you have's not what you are

i know this one felt right
but everytime i walk away i feel shut down inside
today is no exception
and tomorrow breaks again
but I can see
that this will soon be over

i'm never going back
i'm over feeling sorry so just deal with it
there's nothing wrong with that
find comfort in yourself
i know that what you have's not what you are

what you have's not what you are
what you have's not what you are
what you have's not what you are
what you have's not what you are

i'm never going back
i'm over feeling sorry so just deal with it
there's nothing wrong with that
find comfort in yourself
so you can deal with it

i'm never going back
there's nothing wrong with that
i'm never going back
find comfort in yourself
i know that what you have's not what you are

    General CommentOnce again, more corrections. End line of verse one - "And not believing that this time, Her fears were all just doubts". End line of second verse - "And tomorrow breaks again, But I can see that this will soon be over". Once again, very sorry.

    General CommentI absolutley LOVE this song to bits. What' you have's not what you are is sort of like saying, to me at least, wat you are on the outside isn't what you are on the inside. I think it's about a guy who fell in love (maybe) with a girl who broke his heart. And he's saying that he'll never go back to her.

    General Commenti really like this song. midtown lyrics are so positive and inspirational in their simple pop-punk way...for me, "what you have's not what you are" means that even if you are in a bad situation in life, and don't have a lot of friends or whatever, it doesn't mean you're a bad person, because maybe you deserve better but you're just unlucky at the moment.

    General CommentIt's about just waiting and hoping that life gets better, cause one day it will, and not needing other people to make you happy.
