  • Turn my vocals up, alright

    I wrote this song as a message for help
    On behalf of anybody findin' they self
    I wrote this letter to numb your pain
    'Cause everyday I wake up, I'm feelin' the same
    I got issues just like you got issues
    I been hurt, I seen the scar tissue
    If I showed you, would you run away?
    Do I gotta hide 'em for you to wanna stay?
    Do I, even need you? Should I leave you?
    Do I, gotta be you, just to please you?
    Do I, say I'm all good, when I bleed you
    Through my, heart? Quit tearin' mine apart

    I shout, I swear, I get angry, I get scared
    I fall, I break, I mess up, I make mistakes
    But if you can't take me at my worst
    You don't deserve me at my best

    Got to keep it goin', got to keep my head up, uh
    Got to keep it goin', got to keep my head up, uh
    I got to keep it goin', got to keep my head up
    'Cause life is about, aight check this out, look

    Life is about makin' mistakes
    It's also about tryna be great (right)
    Do not let failure scare you away
    I know you fed up, you fall, get up
    It's all in us, I can speak about 'cause I did it (true)
    Ladies and gentlemen, here's the exhibit
    It's my life, look a little closer, you could see the highlight
    Gold ain't always golden but I told 'em
    Look at all the years I've been waitin' for a moment
    Shed a lot of tears just to smile in the mornin'
    Tell me could you love me? Tell me could you love me?
    Tell me could you love me if I told you why?

    I shout, I swear, I get angry, I get scared
    I fall, I break, I mess up, I make mistakes
    But if you can't take me at my worst
    You don't deserve me at my best

    This song's for anybody, yeah
    Who feels like I did, never the cool kid
    This song's for anybody
    Who fought their way through, always remain true
    This song's for anybody
    The one's who tryin' to get it, the one's who dream it and live it
    This song's for anybody
    This song, this song, this song, this song, this song, this song

    Ohh, I shout, I swear, I get angry, I get scared
    I fall, I break, I mess up, I make mistakes
    But if you can't take me at my worst
    You don't deserve me at my best

    Got to keep it goin', got to keep my head up, uh
    Got to keep it goin', got to keep my head up, uh
    I got to keep it goin', got to keep my head up
    'Cause life is about Writer/s: Benjamin Levin, Columbus Baker, Edvard Foerre Erfjord, Henrick Barman Michelsen, Nathan Perez, Rachel Moulden
