Song for a Writer

about

"It’s a mellotron-infused slice of pop perfection, equal parts buoyant and melancholic." - Tyler Wilcox/Aquarium Drunkard

lyrics

It's not what you say, it's the way you live
You're a spectacle for everyone else
You never see the art that you give
You're divided against yourself.

What are you using this life for
Stumbling away from your past
Passing your prime
But you've still got time
To become so much more
Than just getting by.

I didn't even want to save you
Just to be there for your fall
It's only you who can change you
But you'll never try
That's why you're so tragic.

What are you using this life for
Stumbling away from your past
Passing your prime
But you've still got time
To become so much more
Than just getting by.

And there'll have to be some kind of confrontation from within
When will you begin?
