  • I saw the part of you
    That only when you're older you will see too
    You will see too
    I held the better cards
    But every stroke of luck has got a bleed through
    It's got a bleed through
    You held the balance of the time
    That only blindly I could read you
    But I could read you
    It's like you told me
    Go forward slowly
    It's not a race to the end

    Well you look like yourself
    But you're somebody else
    Only it ain't on the surface
    Well you talk like yourself
    No, I hear someone else though
    Now you're making me nervous

    You were the better part
    Of every bit of beating heart that I had
    Whatever I had
    I finally sat alone
    Pitch black flesh and bone
    Couldn't believe that you were gone

    Well you look like yourself
    But you're somebody else
    Only it ain't on the surface
    Well you talk like yourself
    No, I hear someone else though
    Now you're making me nervous

    Well you look like yourself
    But you're somebody else
    Only it ain't on the surface
    Well you talk like yourself
    No, I hear someone else though
    Now you're making me nervous

    Well you look like yourself
    But you're somebody else
    Only it ain't on the surface
    Well you talk like yourself
    No, I hear someone else though
    Now you're making me nervous

    Well you look like yourself
    But you're somebody else
    Only it ain't on the surface
    Well you talk like yourself
    No, I hear someone else though
    Now you're making me nervous

    I saw the part of you that only when you're older
    You will see too, you will see too Writer/s: Cole Randall, Shpresa Lleshaj Randall
