Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I don't feel the way I've ever felt

I know

Gonna smile and not get worried

I try but it shows

[Pre-Chorus]

Anyone can make what I have built and better now

Anyone can find the same white pills

It takes my pain away

[Chorus]

It's a lie, a kiss with open eyes

And she's not breathing back

Anything but bother me

(It takes my pain away)

Never mind, these are hurried times

Oh, oh, oh

I can't let it bother me

[Verse 2]

I never thought I'd walk away from you

I did

But it's a false sense of accomplishment every time I quit

[Pre-Chorus]

Anyone can see my every flaw

It isn't hard

Anyone can say they're above this all

It takes my pain away

[Chorus] It's a lie, a kiss with open eyes And she's not breathing back Anything but bother me (It takes my pain away) Never mind these are horrid times Oh, oh, oh I can't let it bother me

I can't let it bother me It takes my pain away [Chorus]

It's a lie, a kiss with open eyes And she's not breathing back Anything but bother me (It takes my pain away) Never mind, these are horrid times Oh, oh, oh I can't let it bother me [Outro]

Takes my pain Takes my pain Takes my pain Takes my pain away
