I'm still begging for your attention
like when I was a kid
I'm sorry I can't explain this
Absence filled the house
And I lost the laughter with it
I feel so lost in this city
There are such better places than here

I miss your damn smile
Mother I miss your laughter
when it rings
Ill figure my way out
in this world
There is a reason for everything
The sadness came
as I was leaving
I'm sorry for anything
Absurdity started at nothing
It not the first time I scraped my knees
Or the first time I fell past the floor
In all the lessons I learned
It's always to be modest
And that life won't give you things you can't handle
Because things are never promised
I won't be stuck in this hole for long
So straighten your back kid
It's time to move on

Straighten your back kid
You won't be stuck in this hole for long
Straighten your back kid
It's time to move on
