Learning To Quit

 

Back at the start

wearing the scars

Never thought of others ways out

 

It's not like I'm a fool

or uncontrollable

everybody's got their habits and their doubts

 

I know I know I know this is a selfish game

I know I sold or traded all I had for hurt & pain

I know I know I know I know this ain't the wisest way

but we were never taught to quit

 

I lost the game

over and over again

but I'm the one that never shows

 

All I ever loaned

made me lonelier

no one for me not even as my enemy

 

I know I know I know this is a selfish game

I know I sold or traded all I had for hurt & pain

I know I know I know I know this ain't the wisest way

But we were never taught to quit

 

I know I know I know this is a worthless game

I know I sold or traded all I had for hurt and pain

I know I know I know I know is a childish way

I know I'll turn in time you just give me one more day

I know I know I know I know I know I know

I know I know I know I know this ain't the wisest way

I sold I sold I sold I sold all my hope for blame

I know I'm not to hold onto my thoughts this way

I know what loneliness is and I've dealt with shame

I know I know I know I know this ain’t the only way

but we were never taught to quit

we were never taught to quit
