about

In this life there will be some people that pick you up and others that pull you down. This song is a testament to the fact sometimes you "walk taller alone"

lyrics

I spent half of this year try'na figure out how to get better and the other fifty percent realising: I'm there now. Well I could count on one hand the times you believed, I'd have to move to my toes to count the times that you'd leave me balancing plates in the scenes you create. I walk taller alone, it just took time to fake. I kick up my feet on the cobblestones, straight down a dimly lit street. Quoting Bukowski "Some people never go crazy, what truly horrible lives they must lead." Why would you tarnish my name, and act as if I'm just the same, as every damn boy that has ran through your brain on a night like this? I used to think I couldn't be happy, you came up and showed me how wrong I could be. And I'm used to saying "I'm just not there yet" but now I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. I tried finding myself in somebody else but my Dad told me that was naïve. I tried looking for love in the settling dust, what the fuck is wrong with me? It comes on so haunting so needlessly wanting. Left behind just like debris. I've got hate left behind me and scars to remind me just what you did with such ease. And I guess the ironic thing is I've been growing consistently just like the tree we carved our initials in to.
