lyrics

Music & Lyrics by Myla Smith (c) 2013

Lately baby I can feel my age
Bones like bars inside a creaking cage
Move the calendar another page
And accept it
Someday death is gonna come for me
Only thing that you can guarantee
And I'm not the person that I wanna be

I can feel it moving me
Like a wheel, with urgency
Something real is breaking free
And I can't say no
No I can't say no

I'm surveying my squandered youth
Always felt like I was fireproof
Now I'm looking at the cold, hard truth
And it's ugly
I'm good at getting but I do not give
Burning bridges 'cause I won't forgive
Scared of dying and afraid to live

I can feel it moving me
Like a wheel, with urgency
Something real is breaking free
And I can't say no
No I can't say no

I've been living life half-asleep
Counting secrets like I'm counting sheep
But something's waking up way down deep

I can feel it moving me
Like a wheel, with urgency
Something real is breaking free
And I can't say no
No I can't say no
