lyrics

I remember being terrified I was just a little kid
In the basement of my life everything was safe
I don't want to go outside and I don't want to take a ride
If I go I think that I might just die

Everything is complicated I'm not even 16
My bed sheets covered in sweat and my mom's trying to run my life

I remember thinking what's it like

It's kinda like I've been paralyzed with a noose around my neck
One step to the edge and I go to a place where i ain't coming back
I don't want to live that way don't want to be stuck in that place
Just one foot on the ledge and the other's an inch away

Chorus

I remember thinking what's it like I'm no longer a kid
In the basement stuck for life wondering if this is it
I just want to step outside but I don't know how to drive
I'm way past 16 now just trying to find my life

Chorus

If you only knew just how unglued I'd become
Maybe you'd ask me out
If you only knew just how unglued I'd become
Maybe you'd have me over for anything
