My Attic
by Pink

Album: Hurts 2B Human (2019)
  • My attic is full of pages, full of crazy
    Cluttered spaces that you could not cross
    My attic is full of bones and full of hopeless
    Young emotions that just won't grow up

    I keep hiding the keys in all these
    Places even I can't find
    Hoping, one day, you'll find them all
    And I wanna let you see inside my attic

    Inside this olive skin are paper thin
    Illusions that I'm tougher than I am
    And I'm guarded, castle walls from all the falls
    And break up calls and never should have beens

    But don't go pushing too hard
    I'm not so easy to manipulate
    I will give you all of my secrets
    If you promise you can brave my attic

    And I swear, not tryna be vindictive
    I'm just terrified that you might see me different
    You'll change your mind, tell me that I'm crazy
    Tell me that I'm okay, tell me that you'll stay

    'Cause my attic is silver plans and one night stands
    That numbers can't begin to calculate
    My attic is up the stairs and waiting there
    Are lonely nights, they keep me wide awake

    I keep hiding the keys in all these
    Places even I can't find
    Hoping, one day, you'll find them all
    'Cause I wanna let you see inside my attic

    My attic, my attic, my attic
    My attic, my attic
