  • Sometimes I don't wanna wake up alone
    But sometimes I wanna wake up and be on my own
    Sometimes I don't wanna walk by your smile
    But at the same time I don't wanna let people down

    Can you imagine, the weight of a world
    Placed on your shoulders, trapped in this world?
    And no-one can reach you, oh-oh-oh
    So no-one can help you, now

    It's gettin' heavy I think I'm 'bout ready to break down (down)
    I'm standin' up (up), but I'm fallin' down (down)
    Time keeps on tickin', I wish there was a way to slow it down (down)
    Someone pick me up (up), 'cause I'm fallin' down (down)
    I'm fallin' down, down, down, down
    Down, down, down, down
    I'm fallin' down, down, down, down
    Down, down, down

    Why is it so easy for you to blame?
    I'm only human we're all the same
    I've given up everything in exchange for bein' alone
    I'm shakin' these demons underneath all the pride, oh

    Can you imagine, the weight of a world
    Placed on your shoulders, trapped in this world?
    And no-one can reach you, oh-oh-oh
    So no-one can help you, now

    It's gettin' heavy I think I'm bout ready to break down (ooh, down)
    I'm standin' up (standin' up), but I'm fallin' down (down)
    Time keeps on tickin', I wish there was a way to slow it down (slow it down)
    Someone pick me up (pick me up), 'cause I'm fallin' down (fallin' down)
    I'm fallin' down, down, down, down
    Down, down, down (fallin' down, yeah)
    I'm fallin' down, down, down, down
    Down, down, down
    Fallin' down, down, down, down
    Down, down, down
    Fallin' down, down, down, down
    Down, down, down

    It's gettin' heavy I think I'm bout ready to break down (down)
    I'm standin' up (up), but I'm fallin' down
    Time keeps on tickin' on wish there was a way to slow it down (down)
    Someone pick me up (up), 'cause I'm fallin' down (down)

    It's gettin' heavy I think I'm 'bout ready to break down (down)
    I'm standin' up (up), but I'm fallin' down (down)
    Time keeps on tickin' on wish there was a way to slow it down (down)
    Someone pick me up (up), 'cause I'm fallin' down (down)
    Fallin' down, down, down, down
    Down, down, down
    Fallin' down, down, down, down
    Down, down, down
    Fallin' down, down, down, down
    Down, down, down
    Fallin' down, down, down, down
    Down, down, down Writer/s: Charlie Bereal, Christopher Maurice Brown, Luke James Boyd
