It's February and I just want April
To take my hand and pick me up again
Yeah, I'm numb but it's really not that bad
Live life 'til you get it wrong
Take a breath and turn your head
Oh my god, I've gotta get out of this trend

It's 8 o'clock in the middle of a last chance
Can't we just pretend we don't know
Anything or anyone or anywhere anyway?
It's kinda scary in the dark in the dim light
Can't I just pretend I don't mind
Everything or everyone or everywhere anyway?

I've got a lot of life and you've got nothing, nothing
I've got a lot of life and you

Don't swallow the sun, the moon isn't bright enough
We're all like flashlights, useless till you turn us on
Sex and cigarettes are real, the apocalypse is fate
Replace the T with a K
Religion's a reminder that our past is filled with liars

I spell my name with capital letters
But I don't talk much 'cause I'm a beginner at this life thing
Yeah, I'm young but that don't mean much here
If everyone knows that they're gonna grow old
Then why do we act like why we don't like the past?
If we had the chance we'd do it all over again

I've got a lot of life and you've got nothing, nothing
I've got a lot of life and you

Don't swallow the sun, the moon isn't bright enough
We're all like flashlights, useless till you turn us on
Sex and cigarettes are real, the apocalypse is fate
Replace the T with a K
Religion's a reminder that our past is filled with liars

I've spent 21 years replacing my old fears for new ones
I've asked why, how and where
More times than I care to remember
I've got 7 days 'til a new week comes
And 24 hours to convince myself I'm real
'Cause today I'm not so sure I even exist

Sitting by the sinners on a bad day
Everybody's kiss is contagious
I'm tired of watching wars on my TV screen
There's not an easy way to say this
Nobody likes a winter sitting on the wind while the trees get thinner

Can't you just pretend you're a good kid?
Can't I just pretend I really give a shit
Even though I don't really know how I want to live?
I promise I'll be a better person this time next year
This time next year
