  • Can you feel it crush you? Does it seem to bring the worst in you out?
    There's no running away from these things that hold you down
    Do they complicate you because they make you feel like this?
    Of all the colors that you've shined, this is surely not your best

    But you should know these colors that you're shining are
    Surely not the best colors that you shine
    Surely not the best colors that you shine

    I know you feel alone, yeah, and no one else can figure you out
    But don't you ever turn away from the ones that help you down
    Well they'd love to save you, don't you know they love to see you smile?
    But these colors that you've shined are surely not your style

    But you should know these colors that you're shining are
    Surely not the best colors that you shine
    Surely not the best colors that you shine

    I know you're feeling like you're lost
    But you should know these colors that you're shining are
    I know you're feeling like you're lost, you feel you've drifted way too far
    Did you know these colors that you're shining are

    Surely not the best colors that you shine
    Surely not the best colors that you shine
    Surely not the best (I know you're feeling like you're lost)
    Colors that you shine (But you should know these colors that you're shining are)
    Surely not the best (I know you're feeling like you're lost)
    (You feel you've drifted way too far)
    Did you know these colors that you're shining are Writer/s: Edward Sloan
