Rut

Album: Wonderful Wonderful (2017)
  • Don't give up on me
    'Cause I'm just in a rut
    I'm climbing but the walls keep stacking up

    Can't keep my mind off of every little wrong
    I see the mouths are open but I can't hear the song
    I've done my best to fill 'em
    But the cracks are starting to spread
    Hey, I won't blame you baby
    Go on, turn your head

    But don't give up on me
    'Cause I'm just in a rut
    I'm climbing but the walls keep stacking up

    I can't keep pretending this next stop isn't mine
    The truth is on the table, and someone's gotta sign
    I've done my best defending
    But the punches are starting to land
    I'm sliding into something
    You won't understand

    Don't give up on me
    'Cause I'm just in a rut
    I'm climbing but the walls keep stacking up

    But don't give up on me
    'Cause I'm just in a rut
    I'm climbing but the walls keep stacking up

    So I'm handing you a memory
    I hope you understand
    That steadily reminds you
    Of who I really am

    This city's always breathing
    I wish that it would die
    The king rags and the bachelors
    The fever for the velvet rope
    The money from my mother's men
    I'm not like her, you're not like them

    I'll climb and I'll climb
    I'll climb and I'll climb
    I'll climb and I'll climb
    I'll climb and I'll climb
    I'll climb and I'll climb
    I'll climb and I'll climb
    I'll climb and I'll climb
    I'll climb and I'll climb
    I'll climb and I'll climb

    Oh but don't you give up on me (don't you give up, don't you give up)
    Don't you give up on me (don't you give up, don't you give up)
    Don't you give up on me (I'll climb and I'll climb)
    Don't you give up on me (I'll climb and I'll climb) Writer/s: BRANDON FLOWERS, DAVE BRENT KEUNING, GARRET LEE, MARK AUGUST STOERMER, RONNIE JR. VANNUCCI
