lyrics

What have i got to show
For the year spent trying to rebuild knowing I can't do it on my own
But the holes in my pocket and a key stuck in a locket
that won't turn and it's jarred just because
it's just so hard to love me

i make my way to the front door
I'm drumming my fingers I'm pulling at skin
i'm anxious as hell
I came here to erase that but i'm not doing that well
The distraction may render this useless
Cause we're barely scratching the surface
But I watch enough Frasier to know
that this is probably transference
maybe i should go back to avoidance
cause I fear I've become an annoyance
that's the problem that i'm bring to solve with all the appointments
and I'm well aware that the irony is potent

You could burn my apathy
From those who played on my empathy
I lent you all of me
For too long

Yeah avoidance is my middle name
I told myself I won't come back again
But the endings all end all the same
I don't know how to leave

Well if the point of all this is to be painfully honest
You think that i've improved but it's only in the slightest
Call it excited
You're just a sight for these sore eyes
Well if the point of all this is to be painfully honest
You think that i've improved but it's only in the slightest
Call it excited
Whatever this is it's unrequited

You could burn my apathy
From those who played on my empathy
I lent you all of me
For too long

My only mistake was letting you in
I hollowed out a piece of me and let you nestle in
My only regret was giving in to false hope
and living entirely through this lust
when i've just barely learned the ropes
(overlapped vocals)
Yeah avoidance is my middle name
I told myself I won't come back again
But the endings all end all the same
I don't know how to leave
