lyrics

The night
How did it come so fast?
The light
Had just returned at last
But I won’t drink
Cuz then I’ll fall asleep
I want to think
I want to dive in deep

And every time I try to speak
A list of things grabs hold of me
I get sick in the middle of the week
The vision fades and I can’t see

No no no, no no no

If I could do one thing
If I could do one thing well
I wouldn’t be so nervous
I wouldn’t be so unwell
And if I could put my phone down
And if I could look straight ahead
If I wasn’t so distracted
I could think about the days ahead

Weeds overgrown 
In the light that was thrown
By the spaces in trees
Where more trees used to be
This landscape it changes
My desk rearranges
For things I won’t use
Things that I should refuse

And the pulsing of lights
Announcing their rights
I was feeling connected
Now I’m feeling rejected

No no no, no no no

If I could do one thing
If I could do one thing well
I wouldn’t be so nervous
I wouldn’t be so unwell
And if I could put my phone down
And if I could look straight ahead
If I wasn’t so distracted
I could think about the days ahead
I sit and try to breath
Close my eyes so I can’t see
Everything unfinished
Everything undone
Everything diminished
Everything unwon

I’m a fool for believing
A fool for insisting
A fool for still grieving
A fool for resisting
I need to open my eyes and see
How these expectations are killing me

If I could do one thing
If I could do one thing well
I wouldn’t be so nervous
I wouldn’t be so unwell
And if I could put my phone down
And if I could look straight ahead
If I wasn’t so distracted
I could think about the days ahead

If I could do one thing
If I could do one thing
