I hate this place
And what it’s done to me
I don’t want to play this part, but I’m too old for a new start
I’m not even old, I’m young at heart
But old enough to have my hesitations
That I have to face
Like what do I even want anyway?
My house that I’ve known is feeling less and less like home
I’m not scared, but I need to go
For once, I need to run away, away, away

To the weeks just beyond my reach
To a season that belongs to me
To a bed where I can sleep
To a headspace that will let me think

Maybe there’s hope
In what I want to be
Or maybe unrealistic expectations leave me here, forever waiting
Stuck in a life where
I’m sad, I’m bored, I’m something in between
But the in betweens
Feel like the only things that can make me happy
So thanks for all you've given me
I'm sorry it's not meant to be
I take the best and run
You can just throw the rest away, away, away

And I don’t care what it takes from me
I don’t care however bad it seems
And I don’t know if this came out right
But I promise you that I’ll be fine

So fuck this place
At least today
But not always
Just for today
