lyrics

just because you want it
because it makes you feel good
doesn't mean you need it
doesn't mean that you should
if i have it really bad for you
it doesn't mean that i will

cry -- i can't;
i know exactly why
i can't; it's more important
my trajectory
is on display for all to see

my old friends
didn't know what to do
in the midst of crying
curled up together so soon
and they had it really bad, i knew
but it don't excuse

bad behavior when you're weak
or treating your friends miserably
and acting very selfishly
and giving up what you believe is true
it's not impossible to break through
so get off the floor, you weeping mess

don't cry -- you can't;
you know exactly why
you can't; and now you're testing
my capacity to stay
calm

to stay calm
to stay calm
to stay calm

and it's hard

it's hard to turn down a love that's given to you
and i know it's shitty that this could happen to you
but there's a long long road ahead of you
and this is not the end of you
it's a long long road ahead of you
and this is not the end of you
it's a long long road ahead of you
and this is not the end of you
it's a long long road ahead of you
and this is not
no, this is not the end

but it's hard
