about

A slow vocal synthpop piece I started working on in October 2013 and decided to release as a single. Hope you guys enjoy!

lyrics

I don't know
How to say
Things these words
Can't convey
Silence cuts
To the core
But I won't let it talk anymore

You seem so happy, but you
Can't tell me why
Through all the nightmares
Time is slowly crawling by
And you're so devoted, when there's
Nothing to lose
But let it fade away
So that you never have to choose

And you kick me down
But you keep me around
Let me go
And you play your role
And you sell your soul
Take it slow

And to shine
Through the rough
Is the best
Not enough
Brace up for
The attack
These white lies fall apart, staining black

You seem so nervous, I was
Too hard to find
But you are so callous
To the ones you leave behind
Tell me you're sorry, when you
Need me to lose
Another perfect day
Because you never had to choose

And you kick me down
But you keep me around
Let me go
And you play your role
And you sell your soul
Take it slow (x2)
