"Settle Down"

SETTLE DOWN Lyrics by The Dangerous Summer
I gave my things away.
I called the people that I only see on holidays.
This next year's gonna burn a hole in me.
I spent my weekdays in my car
and the weekends drinking hard enough for two.
I think I'll settle down one of these days
'til I catch my breath.
I feel the weight of the world on my back.
But I'm not feeling sick today.

Cause I laid awake in bed,
and thought of better times.
I never wanna sleep,
cause I found apathy
and laying down and never waking up.
I learned a lot today.
Cause there's a reason why I'll never live the easy way.
I'm trying to be real.
I wrote down words inside my arm
that say I'll never walk alone cause I get tired.
I know I have my friends in every way.
So I caught my breath
and for the first time I found what I'm looking for.

Cause I laid awake in bed,
and thought of better times.
I never wanna sleep,
cause I found apathy
and laying down and never waking up.
Yeah I went down.
Yeah I found the way
in the city where my father was born
I had a dream I moved out west.
I finally found out what I wanted to be,
so I picked up where I left.
And I waited two more years,
I covered up my ears.
I think I'm ready to sing this time.
