lyrics

You say “Shhh, just go to sleep”
You don’t recognize the pain in me
“It will all feel better once you close your eyes”
You don’t stop to think that this could be the last time
“You’ll feel better in the morning,
You’ll feel better when the sun rolls over those Hollywood Hills
You’ll feel better if you could just let it be”
But this world tends to drain me
I am alone now, head in my hands

It’s a blow to the ego
A shot to the heart
A knife to the stomach
Don’t forget where we started
Cause I don’t want to watch it end
I learned how to break and forgot how to bend

You say, “Shhh, this all will mend
Look around, I’m here, I’m still your best friend
This will all feel better once we find ourselves”
I wish I could describe what I try to hide, it’s a painful spell
“You’ll feel better in the morning
You’ll feel better after you get a day out of LA
You’ll feel better once you drink some tea”
Yeah, sleep used to visit me
But I’m alone now, head in my hands

It’s a blow to the ego
A shot to the heart
A knife to the stomach
Don’t forget where we started
Cause I don’t want to watch it end
I learned how to break and forgot how to bend

Oh, these were sacred places
Our ghosts warm the open spaces and behind broken doors
Oh, the miles now accumulate and change will percolate
But the current moves forward always

I say “Shhh, it’s okay to sleep
You’re an angel girl, you’ve got all you need
It’s hard when no one’s there to hold your hand
But don’t believe the lie that you cannot fly without a solid plan
You’ll feel better in the morning
You’ll feel better sensing the strength that flows through this city’s veins
You’ll feel better once you know you’re already free
This pain won’t get the best of me”
When it all ends, it’s time to begin
