about

This is a breakup song. But unlike most breakup songs, this takes place before the breakup and is from the perspective of the person finding that they need to initiate it. It’s about the turmoil in deciding to put an end to a relationship that isn’t quite cutting it.

Starting with an acoustic foundation, then morphing into a percussion-heavy atmosphere conveying the stress, frustration and pain in the lyrical content.

lyrics

I feel boxed in
Like a bird in a cage who’s just stuck
Aside from my heart
Well the cage has everything I want

But I wish I could fly
Just spread my wings and fly
But I can’t
Yea I can’t with you in my life

‘Cause no road I take will leave us both okay
No path I choose will make things right
No choice I make will end with us feeling good
So all I can do is drown in my thoughts tonight

You‘ve been good, yeah you treated me well no matter what
Everything feels right, just except for my heart
It’s not like it was before
Things feel different, now I don’t belong here
All the memories of us that were good are now all gone

‘Cause no road I take will leave us both okay
No path I choose will make things right
No choice I make will end with us feeling good
All I can do is drown in my thoughts tonight

Today’s gonna be the day
Don’t know what I’m gonna say
There’s no way to do this where it won’t hurt
So just tell me I’m gonna be alright and this won’t get worse

‘Cause no road I take will leave us both okay
No path I choose will make things right
No choice I make will end with us feeling good
All I can do is drown in my thoughts tonight
