Why'd you go back
What was the rush
Why'd you go back
What was the rush

I thought that I had family and friends that missed me
More like people that needed me back so they could use me
no name town where everything dies
I felt it when I drove in late that night
Calling this place home was nothing but lies
Like a cloud of depression that covers everything in sight

Stoners and druggies with no goals
Parents of new borns with no jobs

Everyone's In a rush
No one takes the time of day to say hello
Just like the 5 o'clock traffic rush
It wouldn't be that bad if one person waved hello

Where's the human interaction?!
I NEED HUMAN INTERACTION
Tell me about your son that plays little league ball
Tell me about your mum that loves to sew  
Tell me about your dog that loves to go for walks in the fall
Tell me about your love one you met at the show

I need human interaction
It's something we're all lacking
As I right this in my room with the lights all dim
I need human interaction
It's something we're all lacking
But i don't want it here in a town so grim

You lack something,
You lack something of importance

I'm not saying you're broken
I'm not saying you're well off

You're kind of in the middle

Why is it so hard for you,
Why is it so hard for you to show someone you love them

You may think you've become vulnerable,
You may risk heartbreak

That's what makes it worth it,
In the end

I look back, was it all worth it?
Saying good bye at the airport pretending like it wasn't going to be our last.

I'm walking to my car holding back my tears, almost lost it.
You got on that plane, didn't look back.

On my way back to Clear Lake I pull off to the side of the road, almost lost it.
You land in Brisbane, didn't look back.

I walk into our apartment look into your room, almost lost it.
You're home now, didn't look back.

I sent you something in the mail, must of lost it.
You're seeing someone now, did you look back?

It's New Year's Eve
I'm here
You're there
I'm alone
You're far from it
I lost it
And now I can't look back

Somewhere in between
Kratos Aug 2015
Who would've thought that in just one week,
Feelings like these could make me so weak,
You were only seventeen
The regret was truly mean
I would've screamed at the top of my lungs
Maybe I was too young
Even though I was 2 years older
I wish I was bolder

Now a year a past
Never thought it'd go that fast
Now we're hanging out again
And I welcome back the pain
As I look upon you
I see someone who
Makes me wanna fall to my knees
It was almost a disease

Now we're listening to our favourite band
If only I could hold your hand
Somewhere in between James bay and Tyler the creator
I look down at her and I could never hate her
Somewhere in between James bay and Tyler the creator
I look down at her and pray I could date her
Somewhere in between James bay and Tyler the creator
I look down at her and realize sooner or later
She'll forget about me
She'll be working on her degree
I'll be in the past
And I'll forever wish I would've asked

— The End —
