I See Everything

I SEE EVERYTHING – SHAY ESPOSITO

There are ghosts in my bedroom and they paint the walls grey
They make me remember the mistakes that I've made
And they shatter my eyelids and they make me see red
My blood hits the sink and I start over again

Tell me

Tell me there's nothing wrong with me
There's not a thing that I don't see
I'd rather be blind; I'd rather be blind
Tell me there's nothing wrong with me
There's not a thing that I don't see
but I'd rather be blind; I'd rather be blind

There's a crack in my mirror and it changes my face
It makes me see things I wish I could erase
It reveals all my secrets and it makes me feel sick
I turn from the image and run from it

Tell me

Tell me there's nothing wrong with me
There's not a thing that I don't see
I'd rather be blind; I'd rather be blind
Tell me there's nothing wrong with me
There's not a thing that I don't see
but I'd rather be blind; I'd rather be blind

I see heartache, I see grey
I see pain and how it plays
and I see red; I see red
I have seen the worst in us
when it's a labour just to trust
and it's all red; I saw red

I see everything
Tell me there's nothing wrong with me
There's not a thing that I don't see
I'd rather be blind; I'd rather be blind
Tell me there's nothing wrong with me
There's not a thing that I don't see
but I'd rather be blind; I'd rather be blind

Let Me Down

I spend my love at the bottom of a bottle
Spend my tears on these ever-growing faults
I, I've been selfish
I, I've been so obsessed

I spend my time just staring though the mirror
Spend the years just wandering through myself
I, I've been foolish
I second guess our past

But I know you're not my king
Cuz you always let me down

Thought I'd waste away my breath regretting leaving
Thought I'd waste away in memories of those eyes
But I, I was careless
I assumed the best in you

I guess I thought when all was said and done you'd be there
But you clearly never cared to deal with me
I, I'm sleeping restless
But I'd rather sleep alone

But I know you're not my king
Cuz you always let me down

I'm starting to forgetx4

But I know you're not my king
Cuz you always let me down

[Lyrics]


Medication

I am sorry that I cried and that it made you feel guilty,
I know that you’d feel better if nothing you said hurt me.
But if you cared so much why would you say it in the first place?
You’re tired of the way I always smile and hide my true face.

I don’t feel a thing does that make you feel better?
You couldn’t stand my voice so I wrote this in a letter.
I’m bad at showing what it means when your voice fills with laughter.
I couldn’t stand this pain so I started a new chapter.

I can be empty inside; all it takes is medication.
I can build a thousand lies; I’ve got the dedication.
Sometimes it’s ok to hide when you’re scared of every notion.
And if it makes you smile, I’ll excuse all emotion.

Sometimes I skip meals like you told me cause you liked it
Better when I was thinner but my body always kept it.
You only called me pretty when I let you see it all;
I always tried so hard so tomorrow you would call.

I don’t remember black and blue skin before I met you,
I only started bruising after nothing I did pleased you.

I can be empty inside; all it takes is medication.
I can build a thousand lies; I’ve got the dedication.
Sometimes it’s ok to hide when you’re scared of every notion.
And if it makes you smile, I’ll excuse all emotion.

Dreaming comes in handy when reality haunts you,
I know I can’t be faulted in the end.
But nothing I can say or do makes it any different;
I will still belong to you; in my mind you are an imprint.

I can be empty inside; all it takes is medication.
I can build a thousand lies; I’ve got the dedication.
Sometimes it’s ok to hide when you’re scared of every notion.
And if it makes you smile, I’ll excuse all emotion.
