"I am terrified of growing old, My funeral

And everything I have to face without you"

Behind The Lyrics

I wrote this about a personal relationship that ended abruptly and really affected me mentally. It was one of those relationships you could see spending a lifetime with but the other person doesn't feel the same. Where it almost kinda feels like the right person, wrong time. This song kinda goes through the motions of how i felt after the breakup. Sad, confused, and some anger. You know that stage where you just feel completely lost. You have this sinking feeling in your chest that never goes away, and you would do or try anything just to feel normal again? I wanted to make the lyrics more dramatic because, well the first couple of days after a breakup, I feel kind of crazy. The things I say, the things I do are probably pretty dramatic, and I know that, but the rush of emotions get the best of me, so that's how I wanted the song to feel.

 

What inspired this song was also one of my favorite albums by Counterparts, “The Difference Between Hell and Home”. If you’re into melodic hardcore music I would highly suggest checking them out. The writing in that album has such amazing poetry, it’s always stuck with me. Counterparts

Lyrics

Say goodbye to all I know

I dont want this

I dont want this anymore

Say goodbye to all I know

I dont want this

Youre the difference between Hell and home

 

When you crawled out of bed

Left me with a broken world

Did you hesitate?

 

When was the minute

When was the hour

When was the moment

That you knew that you're a coward?

 

Im tripping over words to tell my therapist

I'm scared she'll leave me dead and broke like you did

 

I am lust, i am drugs

I am all the above

Anything to keep me from

Yea anything at all

To keep me from my repeating thoughts

That paralyze me

Please dont forget me

 

Was it the was I spilled my heart
Like the tears that fall down my face

 

When was the minute

When was the hour

When was the moment

That you knew that you're a coward?

 

Im tripping over words to tell my therapist

I'm scared she'll leave me dead and broke like you did

I am terrified of growing old

My funeral

And everything I have to face without you

 

Fuck

 

Make this stop

Oh make this stop

Oh make this stop

 

Im tripping over words to tell my therapist

I'm scared she'll leave me dead and broke like you did
