Stupid Little Things

Album: Resurrection (2014)
  • Stuck on the wrong side of heaven
    But I did it to myself
    I did it to myself
    Traded in my forever
    But I did it to myself
    I did it to myself

    When I get too close to my someday
    Every time I blow it away
    Praying I will come to my senses
    Won't be my own worst enemy

    And I put my heart back together
    Yeah I put my heart back together

    Now I know what love is worth in a broken world
    But I can't get past the hurt
    'Til I give up on these stupid little things
    I'm so hung up on these stupid little things
    That keep me from you

    Treated love like a bad religion
    Yeah I did it to myself
    I did it to myself
    But I won't stay here unforgiven
    When I did it to myself
    I did it to myself

    When I get too close to my someday
    Every time I blow it away
    Praying I will come to my senses
    Won't be my own worst enemy

    And I put my heart back together
    I said, I put my heart back together

    Now I know what love is worth in a broken world
    But I can't get past the hurt
    'Til I give up on these stupid little things
    I'm so hung up on these stupid little things
    That keep me from you

    Now I know what love is worth in a broken world
    But I can't get past the hurt
    'Til I give up on these stupid little things
    I'm so hung up on these stupid little things
    That keep me from you

    Hey, hey

    Living in a world of fantasy
    There is nothing left of me
    Now I gotta face reality
    Hold on trying to believe
    I don't want to give up on you

    Now I know what love is worth in a broken world
    But I can't get past the hurt
    'Til I give up on these stupid little things
    I'm so hung up on these stupid little things
    That keep me from you
    keep me from you
    keep me from you
    keep me from you

    'Til I give up on these stupid little things
    I'm so hung up on these stupid little things

    That keep me from you, yea, yeah oh
    That keep me from you you you you yeah Writer/s: LOUIS BIANCANIELLO, MICHAEL BIANCANIELLO, SAMUEL WATTERS, COURTNEY HARRELL, ANASTACIA NEWKIRK
