Lyrics: I can't explain what I'm still doing here
Lost in confusion for many years
Could be physical or maybe in my head
But I'll never know, I'm too scared to go and see what's wrong

I don't want to feel this way anymore
I can hardly pick myself up off the floor
I want to go back to the start
The way things were before they fell apart, oh

When I leave this place behind
I won't turn my head to see
Where I've been before when all it's brought is misery
Things won't always be this way
I'm still young and I've got time
To change the things that I can't stand about myself

Things are looking blacker every day
Voices outside my door won't keep away
Black mold festering beneath the sheets
Garbage on the floor beside my feet, oh

When I leave this place behind
I won't turn my head to see
Where I've been before when all it's brought is misery
Things won't always be this way
I'm still young and I've got time
To change the things that I can't stand about myself
I just can't stand myself

When I think about you
It gives me hope
Cause when you left, you left for good and never looked back
What it must be like to be like that
About the Artist

They have lent their compositional and production talents to a number of television shows, including CBS's Cold Case, American Idol Rewind and the Showtime series Shameless. They record and mix their songs at Brad's home studio in South Austin.
