lyrics

You were a leaf on a maple tree
You burned bright and then you fell
Made a show for everyone
Left an empty opening
My own sad story to tell
Getting sore over the months
And soon it will be years that I've had this loneliness
And if you could be here 
I would have to tell you this

Real isn’t simple and simple isn’t me
The world is really messy but we all like company
And if you shoveled in the coal I knew I could make fire
But you’re empty and you’re cold and so was I after a while
I can’t open my mouth cos everyone gets scared
They can’t handle me different no one is that well prepared
And I’m not really either but if i had more to give
i would want you to be here
I would have to tell you this

Bright skin, dark lips, looking up from emptiness
Balancing yourself on coke and cigarettes
I feel seasick and obnoxious that I let someone in
And if I can be honest I won't like that again
So now my days are long and lonely but I'm trying to be productive
But it's funny to me
now that i'm finally free
all i want is to be back in the dungeon

Real isn’t simple, and simple isn’t me
The world is miserable so we're in good company
And you left me in the fall, but I learned how to make fire
Now I'm tired and I'm cold cos it's really hard to try
I can’t open my mouth cos everyone gets scared
They can't handle authentic, no one is that well prepared
And I’m not really either but if things were different
I would want you to be here
I would have to tell you this
