lyrics

I left a part of me in that city
a whole part you never knew
but I liked the idea of someplace new.
So I packed up my things and moved.

I thought I could make this place my own.
But i found nothing but false hope.
and people will tell you the things you wanna hear.
building promises so thin
paper airplanes in the wind.

It's gravity…
every time I try to leave.
I’m always pulled back in.
but I’m still sinking
‘Cause I can’t have everything
and something is missing.

So if I tell you it’s enough
Call my bluff
and send me home.

I clocked in so many hours
but I stayed on borrowed time.
It’s hard to believe I let three years slip by
Waiting tables and asking myself why… am I here?

It's gravity…
every time I try to leave.
I’m always pulled back in.
but I’m still sinking
my fingerprints in everything
but something is missing

So if I tell you it’s enough
Call my bluff
and send me home.

I left a part of me in that city
the whole part you never knew.
