Do I disappoint you, have I let you down.
Am I all at wrong, is it all my fault.
I've tried to be the loving, tried to be supportive.
I've tried to be enough, tried to earn you love.
I've tried with all I have.
Broken & alone, on a one-way flight, never coming home.

Have I let you down


Never going to shine my light, in this dark, dark space.
These four walls should be safe, I'm not feeling, ey.
I've always had to hide away, everything I should say!
I don't want to leave, but I need to feel free, and I need to breathe,

Do I disappoint you, have I let you down.
Am I all at wrong, is it all my fault.
I've tried to be the loving, tried to be supportive.
I've tried to be enough, tried to earn you love.
I've tried with all I have.
Broken & alone, on a one-way flight, never coming home.
Never to belong, never known that you could be honest with someone.
When all is said & done, you're still just the man in the mirror starring back at me
Strangers taught me, love,
Stranger taught me, hope,
Stranger taught me how to let you go…

Oh! you dream, you believe,
to become, the things, that I could never be.
You see, above, beyond, the clouds they will never cease.
You walk, the path, in the high grass.
leading you to discover, you were meant to be a lover,
making it uncomfortable to breathe,

You dream, you believe,
to become, the things, that I could never be.
The air which I seek, sold only at the highest peak, and I will never, never reach.
I kneel to the fortunes of the priest, giving me the seeds to prosper my beliefs, the stronger I perceive, my dreams I deplete, making it uncomfortable to breathe.

You dream, you believe,
to become, the things, that I could never be.
Frozen in the shadow of the sun,
Death is making it uncomfortable breathe,
beneath, the surface, we all see,
Beneath, beneath, beneath.
The bones are shaking, dreams,
the veins are pouring, beliefs.
to become, the things, that I could never be.
The love you give is gold, the gold you stole from your own, never known to nurture the soul.
Oh, let the glitter flow, let the firework show,
don't ever let them know, you're breaking to the core,
Yeah, the love you give is gold, never known to nurture the soul.
Death is making it uncomfortable to breathe.
