I don't want our past to decide our future together
I don't wanna waste my heart on another unread leter
I don't wanna spend another day trying to hide the bloodshot eyes
I wanna have to look for the truth in your lies
I don't wana have to pay for another broken phone
I don't wanna build myself another broken home
I don't wanna hear you say it will all work out somehow
I don't wanna be just good enough for you for now

So I try to hide away behind this guitar and microphone
Because knows things are better left alone
And maybe you'll think that I'm just giving up
Am I growing weary or am I just growing up?

3 years on my own now just trying to make it day to day
6 months of sleeping, but I never really slept anyway
So tired of hiding so I cut the hair out of my eyes
Just another costume, another mindless disguise
I grew up way too fast and I'm done with all the games
They just make me tired and I'm tired of feeling lame
And I'm done wasting my time wondering if you would be true
And I'm done wasting nights losing sleep over you

So I try to hide away behind this guitar and microphone
Because knows things are better left alone
And maybe you'll think that I'm just giving up
Am I growing weary or am I just growing up?

I lay awake at night these thoughts whirling through my head
And solid sleep just won't come to me in this bed
Thoughts of the past and present, they just tear me apart
But now I know it time to make a brand new start

So I try to hide away behind this guitar and microphone
Because knows things are better left alone
And maybe you'll think that I'm just giving up
Am I growing weary or am I just growing up?

So I try to hide away behind this guitar and microphone
Because we both know that we're better off alone
And maybe you'll think that I'm just giving up
Am I growing weary or am I just growing up?

I like
Particularly:
"I don't wanna spend another day trying to hide the bloodshot eyes
I wanna have to look for the truth in your lies
I don't wana have to pay for another broken phone
I don't wanna build myself another broken home"

I thought that worked really well, very powerful imagery.
