Dear Seattle – Here to Stay Lyrics

Here to Stay Lyrics By Dear Seattle

I heard you break
But lately I’m stuck swimming around
inside my selfish brain
Like somehow time will start coming around and cure all your pain

I wanna be more
But not enough to change
So now the weight of your words
Will tear me down every time you say

That I’ve been wasting time
And I can’t shake it when
There’s nothing left to offer
This isn’t what I wanted

But I’m not down and out
I’m not drowning
This isn’t what I wanted
But I’m gonna take it day by day

When I’m awake
It seems like I’m stuck s*cking the doubt
Out of my manic veins
‘Cause this time I’m the one who’s
Causing all this pain

I want to be more
But not enough to change
So now the weight of your words
Will tear me down everytime you say

That I’ve been wasting time
And I can’t shake it when
There’s nothing left to offer
This isn’t what I wanted

But I’m not down and out
I’m not drowning
This isn’t what I wanted
But I’m gonna take it day by day

I’m fading away
You’re waiting to say
That you see the spark
Inside my brain
It’s catching on and lighting up the flame
That warms up your face
And dries out your pain
‘Cause what you want
Is freezing up
It’s only 8 degrees out in the pouring rain

But don’t be afraid
I’m making my way, yeah I’m coming around
I’m on the train
And heading northbound as you say
I hate being this way
I hate being this way
It sparks a flame
And dries the rain
I’ve made it back and babe I’m here to stay
‘Cause I’ve been wasting time
And I can’t shake it when
There’s nothing left to offer
This isn’t what I wanted
