From the Inside (Live) Lyrics 02:55
I’m tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless
Lost under the surface
I don’t know what you’re expecting of me
Put under the pressure
Of walking in your shoes

[Caught in the undertow / Just caught in the undertow]
Every step that I take is another mistake to you

I’ve
Become so numb
I can’t feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
I’m becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you

Can’t you see that you’re smothering me
Holding too tightly
Afraid to lose control
‘Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you

[Caught in the undertow / Just caught in the undertow]
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
[Caught in the undertow / Just caught in the undertow]
And every second I waste is more than I can take

But I know
I may end up failing too
But I know
You were just like me
With someone disappointed in you
Don’t know who to trust
No surprise
Everyone feels so far away from me
Heavy thoughts sift through dust
And the lies

Trying not to break
But I’m so tired of this deceit
Every time I try to make myself
Get back up on my feet
All I ever think about is this
All the tiring time between
And how
Trying to put my trust in you
Just takes so much out of me

I take everything from the inside
And throw it all away
‘Cause I swear/ for the last time
I won’t trust myself with you

Tension is building inside
Steadily
Everyone feels so far away from me
Heavy thoughts forcing their way
Out of me

I won’t trust myself with you
I won’t waste myself on you
Waste myself on you
You
