I do love this song. Heard it on a mixtape.


“I’m looking for the upsides to these panic attack nights
Where I’m staying in eating take out food by TV light
I’m trying to play the b-side to this awkward life of mine
You could flip me over, I’d sing a few lines about how
I’m so used to shooting myself in the kneecaps
Standing in the way of progress
Or letting down my friends

So I’m nailing shards of hope together
To put something over my head
Cause you know here it’s always raining
And it happened again, it happened again
She said, I let this slide when we were younger
You know you don’t have to write like this
The whole world’s full of losers
If you get a chance to win, take it”
