Here for Nothing

Album: Better Weather B-Sides (2017)
  • Came here for nothing
    Came here for nothing
    Now you're gone
    Oh I'm better off alone
    I was picking up the pieces
    Trying to iron out the creases
    When you got up and left me here
    You tried so hard to disappear

    I could have told you
    I don't have the strength to hold to
    But I'll take your weight
    I'll take your company and your hate
    Do you remember
    I tried to put myself together
    But you couldn't take the notion
    You came in like an ocean

    And you left me crawling
    On my bedroom floor
    I tried so hard
    But you still wanted more
    I couldn't let you drown
    So I let you drift away
    You're tearing me apart
    Because you didn't have the guts to stay

    I was fighting for my sanity
    While you fought for what was left of me
    I couldn't find the best part of my mind
    'cause you crumpled up my brain
    Driving me insane
    Nothing feels the same
    I'm falling down like rain

    And you left me crawling
    On my bedroom floor
    I tried so hard
    But you still wanted more
    I couldn't let you drown
    So I let you drift away
    You're tearing me apart
    Because you didn't have the guts to stay

    [Instrumental]

    And you left me crawling
    On my bedroom floor
    I tried so hard
    But you still wanted more
    I couldn't let you drown
    So I let you drift away
    You're tearing me apart
    Because you didn't have the guts to

    I Came here for nothing
    I Came here for nothing
    Now you're gone
    I Came here for nothing
    I Came here for nothing
    Now you're gone
    I Came here for nothing
    I Came here for nothing
