All the Ways to Crumble

from by Vinny Vegas



Of all the ways to crumble up
you would choose the ones that you loved too much
romanticize the life you show
tell them only things you want them to know
I'll speak my piece, then let it be
negativity only cheapens me
I'll breathe it out, then breathe in again
just like you always told me

to say these things out loud
and don't be surprised when you hear them said
by someone else

And later on, I'll remember this
as the turning point
that I almost missed
when I thought too hard
or I stayed too long
cause I thought it all had meaning

To a life we almost had
had our eyes not been closed
just think of all we could have seen
But I was scared to know, I'm still scared to know

So there I was in a room
just the way it's always been
when it's scarce, I'm aware
I'm always conscious of these things
Now at night, when I sleep
I won't be afraid
I know what's there, and what waits for me

Don't look over there, it isn't real
the things you see are only figments of a place you'll never be
you close your eyes, it goes away
and there you are to never ever have to think of it again
if who I was and who I am are not the same, then why
then why, then why
why be afraid? why be afraid? I'm not afraid, don't be afraid
just open your eyes, just stop and open your eyes

This was real, I was here
and at times I thought it was how I was going to stay
but in truth, it was me all along, I was the one who would keep it that way
