lyrics

Every day it seems I lost myself
but I have tried to calm my strides
And just today it seems that I'm a fool
cuz I have tried to compromise

myself to them
like they care at all
when I change myself
they will watch me fall.

I'm finding love's a reason to complain
and you say I'm still young,
but how it hurts you when you're young.
I'm just looking for a greener place
and you say it's been done,
but I don't care if it's been done.

So don't claim you're unable to convince yourself
to a kid who convinced himself he was straight
from birth 'til twelve or thirteen. It was working
'til the world seemed it was out to hurt me.

Trust me don't you blame yourself
from a man who once blamed himself for the faults of
those who tried to trick me. It convinced me
I was slipping, I just needed fixing.

Now I know
they weren't friends at all.
When I change myself
I will watch them fall.

I'm finding love's a reason to complain
and you say I'm still young,
but how it hurts you when you're young.
I'm just looking for a greener place
and you say it's been done,
but I don't care if it's been done.
