lyrics

What the hell was I thinking?
This is too much too soon
All these people crowded in this tiny room
Does it help that I don’t know any of you?
Cuz I’ve gotta get over this stage fright some how
If I can do this in front of my mirror
Why can’t I just get this over with right now?
I’m just so scared that no one will care what I have to say
To you I’m just the opening act for the main stage

The pressure’s on to perform
I just want someone in this room to relate to this song
And feel a little less alone
So wish me luck
Curtains up
Let’s hope that I don’t choke on this one

It just occurred to me
That no one else is worrying
About the entire lack of community
And there aren’t too many people assuring me
That it’ll be alright
I guess no one wants to lie
Or maybe they really don’t have a thing to say about why our scene is this way
Every band just looks out for themselves
I see the same 3 on each bill
So I’ll just isolate myself from everyone
Because you don’t want to listen
You just want to have fun

The pressure’s on to perform
I just want someone in this room to relate to this song
And feel a little less alone
So wish me luck
Curtains up
Let’s hope that I don’t choke on this one

I hope you come up to me after our set and say

You are not alone
You never were
You never will be
Because you’ll always have me
You were never alone
Because I loved you all so much
And when times got rough
You were there for me
And I can’t thank you enough

You are not alone
You never were
You never will be
Because you’ll always have me
You were never alone
Because I loved you all so much
And when times got rough
You were there for me
And I can’t thank you enough

At the very least
If it brings your mind some peace
I think it would be better
If we just sit back and hate the world together
At the very least
If your anger doesn’t cease
I think it would be better
If we just sit back and hate the world together
