  • I just want time in a tree
    I need a place just for me
    Somewhere that I can be free
    Keep the faith and just be
    What you'll be

    I guess rules are there to break
    But I make mistakes like they were handed on a plate
    When I try to leave sometimes, I'm standing in the way
    I'm on the edge of crying all the time, 'cause I can't human
    Right

    What a state
    I get wound up, from the ground up
    And I don't know why
    Turn the sound up, drown the noise out
    Swallow (whoa), don't cry
    Got an anxious heart, and it's stone made
    Can't take paper or heartbreak
    Did Billy Joel have self esteem?
    Maybe Vienna wouldn't wait for me

    I just want time in a tree
    I need a place just for me
    Somewhere that I can be free
    Keep the faith and just be
    What you'll be

    Do you ever feel like, you could live a real life?
    Like everybody else in the real world, you could be a real girl?
    You could be a wizard, or you could be in NASA
    You could write fiction, you could tame raptors
    Most days I struggle and I get snappy
    Fuck all that, I just wanna be happy

    Swimming against the current
    Am I wrong?
    Can you show me a warrant?
    Honestly, I'm a bomb
    Abhorrent
    I'm on it, I get it, I've got it
    I wanna be 10 again, just me and Sonic
    And nobody telling me I should be more than I am
    Back when I had a plan

    I, I just want time in a tree
    I need a place just for me (for me)
    Somewhere that I can be free (can be free)
    Keep the faith and just be (just be)
    What you'll be

    I've seen things that I never should have seen
    Said too many things I didn't mean
    Hurt myself too many times to count
    I need to let it out, and just release
    Been lying to myself too long
    Been trying by myself too long
    I can't relax, I'm too distracted
    I can't hack it, hmm
    I'm needy, greedy
    Love me, feed me
    Let's be a family
    It'll take a village
    To make a man of me
    So why couldn't you love me?
    It's all I need

    I just want time in a tree
    I need a place just for me
    Somewhere that I can be free
    Keep the faith and just be
    What you'll be Writer/s: Daniel James Traynor, Jacob Anderson
