about

Had a few people ask for this original version to be put back up. I personally don't think it's quite as bueno, but whatever :P

lyrics

I’ve got a habit of walkin away
Started in markets right around 3
Sometimes it’s helpful
With making clean breaks
And sometimes the vessel
Sinks without me

I had it all with ya
A friend that I loved
You even got me
So weak in a way
That left me with questions
That could not be answered
Since “nothing from something”
It doesn’t ring the same

The clock struck 11:14
While I slept in
Per usual I found out
After the fact
That I’d missed these moments
While roamin’ the lone streets
I’ll hold it on my back
Since it’s all behind me

I had it all with ya
The friends that I love
But I let ya make me
So weak in a way
That leaves me with questions
That cannot be answered
Since “nothing from something”
It doesn’t ring the same


I’ve always gone for the song
Before I chase you
Pleasure makes a top hit
But I want the truth
So are we gonna leave it here
And leave it to fate?
Just know that nothing from something
Doesn’t ring the same

I didn’t learn shit from the lessons I sang
So self-pity winning became my day to day
I wasn’t willing to work meager (SECRET: This line was originally supposed to end with "late nights" instead of "meager"),
Privileged pride had me poor
The humble done struck me
In the back of my Ford

I have it all with ya
The friend that I love
You even got me
So weak in a way
That fills me with questions
That will not be answered
Since “nothing from something”
It doesn’t ring the same
