  • It's like we're on the edge right now
    I wish that I could say I'm proud
    I'm sorry that I let you down
    Let you down
    All these voices in my head get loud
    I wish that I could shut them out
    I'm sorry that I let you down
    L-l-let you down

    Yeah, I guess I'm a disappointment
    Doing everything I can, I don't wanna make you disappointed
    It's annoying
    I just wanna make you feel like everything I ever did wasn't ever tryna make an issue for you
    But, I guess the more you
    Thought about everything, you were never even wrong in the first place, right?
    Yeah, I'ma just ignore you
    Walking towards you, with my head down, lookin' at the ground, I'm embarrassed for you
    Paranoia, what did I do wrong this time? That's parents for you
    Very loyal?
    Shoulda had my back, but you put a knife in it, my hands are full
    What else should I carry for you?
    I cared for you, but

    It's like we're on the edge right now
    I wish that I could say I'm proud
    I'm sorry that I let you down
    L-l-let you down
    All these voices in my head get loud
    I wish that I could shut them out
    I'm sorry that I let you down
    L-l-let you down

    Yeah, you don't wanna make this work
    You just wanna make this worse
    Want me to listen to you
    But you don't ever hear my words
    You don't wanna know my hurt, yet
    Let me guess you want an apology, probably
    How can we keep going at a rate like this?
    We can't, so I guess I'ma have to leave
    Please don't come after me
    I just wanna be alone right now, I don't really wanna think at all
    Go ahead, just drink it off
    Both know you're gonna call tomorrow like nothing's wrong
    Ain't that what you always do?
    I feel like every time I talk to you, you're in an awful mood
    What else can I offer you?
    There's nothing left right now, I gave it all to you

    It's like we're on the edge right now
    I wish that I could say I'm proud
    I'm sorry that I let you down
    L-l-let you down
    All these voices in my head get loud
    I wish that I could shut them out
    I'm sorry that I let you down
    L-l-let you down

    Yeah, don't talk down to me
    That's not gonna work now
    Packed all my clothes and I moved out
    I don't even wanna go to your house
    Everytime I sit on that couch
    I feel like you lecture me
    Eventually, I bet that we
    Could have made this work and probably woulda figured things out
    But I guess that I'm a letdown
    But it's cool, I checked out
    Oh, you wanna be friends now?
    Okay, let's put my fake face on and pretend now
    Sit around and talk about the good times
    That didn't even happen
    I mean, why are you laughing?
    Must have missed that joke
    Let me see if I can find a reaction
    No, but at least you're happy

    Feels like we're on the edge right now
    I wish that I could say I'm proud
    I'm sorry that I let you down
    Oh, I let you down
    All these voices in my head get loud
    And I wish that I could shut them out
    I'm sorry that I let you down
    Oh, let you down

    I'm sorry
    I'm so sorry now
    I'm sorry
    That I let you down Writer/s: Nate Feuerstein, Tommee Profitt
