Track Name: You Don't See
I’m reaching out for you, but it might be the last time
I promised I could change, but I can’t seem to change my mind
I’ve been swimming for so long against the tide
Am I even worth it? Or am I in a losing fight?

I want you near me but I can’t have you close cuz you could be the lifeline that I need
And I don’t wanna get on your boat cuz I want to sink and you want me to float

And you - you don’t, no you don’t, no you don’t, no you don’t see
No - you don’t, no you don’t, no you don’t, no you don’t see
No you - you don’t, no you don’t, no you don’t, no you don’t see
No - it’s not as easy as you make it out to be

Tell me: what is left for me after the storm clears?
Will the stillness of the water bring me face to face with all my deepest fears?
Am I even worth it? Why can’t I change?
Some days I wish a tidal wave would come and wash us all away

I want you near me but I can’t have you close cuz you are the lifeline that I need
And I don’t wanna get on your boat cuz I want to sink and you’re keeping me afloat

And you - you don’t, no you don’t, no you don’t, no you don’t see
No - you don’t, no you don’t, no you don’t, no you don’t see
No you - you don’t, no you don’t, no you don’t, no you don’t see
No - it’s not as easy as you make it out to be

Track Name: Did You Know...
I see you going through the motions looking like you know exactly where you’re going
But you don’t know [you don’t know]
Your eyes are wide and you’re smiling, telling everyone around you you’re alright
But they don’t know [no they don’t know]
It’s all fun and games until you realise you’re the one that’s being played
[Did you know?]
And now the mirror’s showing you a face that you don’t recognise at all anymore
[Where did you go?]

Did you know it doesn’t have to be like this

I see you trying hard to shrink yourself down, hoping that nobody will notice you’re around
[Do they know?]
Isn’t it funny that the only time you’re high is when you’re busy kicking yourself down?
[Do they know?]
Why can’t you see, you’re getting nowhere, nowhere running on empty?
[You know it]
And now the mirror’s showing you a shell of who you thought you were supposed to be by now
[Who are you now?]

Did you know it doesn’t have to be like this?
