Teddy Swims - I've Tried Everything But Therapy (Part I) Lyrics






Some Things Ill Never Know

Walking down the street last night
Watching strangers pass me by
Where do all our shadows go?
I guess some things I'll never know

I can fool my senses for a little while
But some things are too hard to reconcile

When I look into your eyes
There's no answers I can't find
It's a feeling that I've never known
When I'm wide awake tonight
Running circles in my mind
There's an answer I can't find
When did your heart let me go?
I guess some things I'll never know
I guess some things I'll never know

I'm running out of avenues
'Cause every road leads back to you
When memories fade, where do they go?
I guess some things I'll never know

I can fool my senses for a little while
But some things are too hard to reconcile

Oh, when I look into your eyes
There's no answers I can't find
It's a feeling that I've never known
When I'm wide awake tonight
Running circles in my mind
There's an answer I can't find
When did your heart let me go?
I guess some things I'll never know
I guess some things I'll never know

Did I turn over every stone?
Am I still there when your eyes close?
When did your heart let me go?
I guess some things I'll never know

Lose Control

Something's got a hold of me lately
No, I don't know myself anymore
Feels like the walls are all closin' in
And the devil's knockin' at my door, whoa

Out of my mind, how many times
Did I tell you I'm no good at bein' alone?
Yeah, it's takin' a toll on me, tryin' my best to keep
From tearin' the skin off my bones, don't you know

I lose control
When you're not next to me (when you're not here with me)
I'm fallin' apart right in front of you, can't you see?
I lose control
When you're not next to me, mm-hm
Yeah, you're breakin' my heart, baby
You make a mess of me

Problematic
Problem is I want your body like a fiend, like a bad habit
Bad habits hard to break when I'm with you
Yeah, I know, I could do it on my own
But I want that real full moon black magic and it takes two
Problematic
Problem is when I'm with you, I'm an addict
And I need some relief, my skin in your teeth
Can't see the forest through the trees
Got me down on my knees, darlin' please, oh

I lose control
When you're not next to me (when you're not here with me)
I'm fallin' apart right in front of you, can't you see?
I lose control
When you're not next to me, mm-hm
Yeah, you're breakin' my heart, baby
You make a mess of me, yeah

I lose control
When you're not here with me, mm
I'm fallin' apart right in front of you, can't you see?
I lose control
When you're not here with me, mm-hm
Yeah, you're breakin' my heart, baby
You make a mess of me

What More Can I Say

Love can't make you stay

Drunken rage came stormin' in
5 AM, you woke me up again
'Cause the doubles on ice and your friend Diane
Got you all up in your head again
About a picture on my phone from a girl I used to know
Got your searchin' flights back home
I'm like, please

Don't go
Got my heart rate up real high
Vocabulary runnin' low
Out of breath, I keep goin' and goin', oh, no
If I'm a record then I'm broke
You don't like my song no more
And all I need to know is

What more (what more) can I say (more can I say)
To you baby
When I'm out of words you haven't heard?
If love (if love) can't make you stay (can't make you stay)
It's your play
So tell me what more can I say?

Beat me up and leave me black and blue
Do whatever that you gotta do
Throw the dirty laundry in the street
Chipped acrylic now you're blamin' me
About a picture on my phone from a million years ago
Got you searchin' flights back home
I'm like, please

What more (what more) can I say (more can I say)
To you baby
When I'm out of words you haven't heard?
If love (if love) can't make you stay (can't make you stay)
It's your play
Tell me what I'm supposed to say?

Except don't go
Got my heart rate up real high
Vocabulary runnin' low
Out of breath, I keep goin' and goin', oh, no
If I'm a record then I'm broke
You don't like my song no more
So tell me what more can I say? (Say)

Say (can't make you stay)

The Door

I took a page out of your favorite book
You sold me lies just by the way you look
Taught me a language that I've never speak
Baby, that ain't for me, that, that ain't for me
I dug my grave watchin' the way you move
You took me higher than I ever flew, ooh
Too many times, gave you a second chance
Baby, I'm just a man, I'm, I'm just a man

No more thinkin' about you late-night
No more runnin' around with your friends now
Done pickin' up pieces of my soul up off the floor, ohh

I said I would die for you, baby
But I can't take this pain no more
I thought I was willin'
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door
I don't wanna lose you, baby
But I can't play this game no more
I thought it would kill me
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door

You never thought this day would ever come
But I looked you in the eyes and pulled the rug
You tried to take away my sanity
Baby, that ain't for me, that, that ain't for me

Oh, no more thinkin' about you late-night
No more runnin' around with your friends now
Done pickin' up pieces of my soul up off the floor, ohh

I said I would die for you, baby
But I can't take this pain no more
I thought I was willin'
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door
I don't wanna lose you, baby
But I can't play this game no more
I thought it would kill me
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door

When I showed you the door
When I showed you the door
But tonight I saved my life

I said I would die for you, baby
But I can't take this pain no more
I thought I was willin'
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door
I don't wanna lose you, baby (I don't wanna lose you, baby)
But I can't play this game no more (no more)
I thought it would kill me (I thought it would kill me)
But tonight I saved my life when I showed you the door

Goodbyes Been Good to You

Goodbye, my love
You tore me up
I heard you found somebody new
Looks like goodbye's been good to you
Good days I'm on
And I can't move on
Quite as easy as you do
Looks like goodbye's been good to you

I been a-hurtin' since you walked out the door
Nothing's workin' like the way it did before
Oh, I cry, oh, I cry, oh, I pray a little to the Lord
Oh, I try, oh, I try, but it only make me miss you more (yeah)
You took the dog and the Honda and half my shit
Kinda mad at my mama 'cause y'all still friends
I gotta move so I never gotta see you again
I never see you again, so long

Goodbye, my love
You tore me up
I heard you found somebody new
Looks like goodbye's been good to you
Good days I'm on
And I can't move on
Quite as easy as you do
Looks like goodbye's been good to you

Looks like, looks like, looks like
Looks like goodbye's been good to you
Looks like, looks like, looks like

Gave you all my love, all my time
All my money, baby
It wasn't enough, I'm still smilin'
'Cause 'cause the finer things
I'll get better like
Changin' weather
And you're gonna miss me like how
Like how I miss you right now

Goodbye, my love
You tore me up
I heard you found somebody new
Looks like goodbye's been good to you
Good days I'm on
And I can't move on
Quite as easy as you do
Looks like goodbye's been good to you

Looks like, looks like, looks like (whoa)
Looks like, looks like, looks like

(Sleep) well, I can't get no sleep
(Eat) and I ain't ate in weeks
(Drink) I did plenty of that
(Weed) yeah, I roll 'em up fat
(Sleep) well, I can't get no sleep
(Eat) oh, and I ain't ate in weeks
(Drink) well, I did plenty of that
(Weed) yeah, I roll 'em up fat

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye

Last Communion

I used to believe Heaven was bulletproof
Only God can turn a red light blue (only God can turn a red light blue)
Been cuttin' me deep, dyin' to talk to you
Only love can push the blade right through

This love's an orphan callin' on deaf ears
And there's no afterlife, but if there is
It's late in the night time, so it's the right time
For sleep talkin', sleep talkin'

And now the heart's shot dead
Buried under each and every word unsaid
Twenty-four hours just go by, God bless
'Fore we let the ghost get away
One last communion, babe

So I let it go, nobody else around
Couldn't watch forever fall face down
So I turned my head the second it hit the ground
And I felt it, but it made no sound

This love's an orphan callin' on deaf ears
And there's no afterlife, but if there is
It's late in the night time, so it's the right time
For sleep talkin', sleep talkin'

It was a grand old age
Oh, yes, I know that nothin' broke can stay
But I couldn't bring myself to turn that page
Before I dropped a kiss on the grave
One last communion, babe

One last communion, babe
One last, one last, one last

One last communion, babe

It was a childish game
Who can light a candle in the cryin' rain?
No one could know about the mess we've made
I'm scrubbin', prayin' that the blood don't stain
I only whisper your name
One last communion, babe

One last communion, babe
(One last communion, babe)

One last, one last

You Still Get to Me

I still see your green eyes every time that I close mine
Barefoot dancin', second glass of gas station wine
Yesterday I found the sweater that you left
Just one more reminder makes it hard to forget

You still get to me
Every time I find somebody
And I think I'm movin' on
You still get to me
And it still tears me to pieces
Every time I hear that song
'Cause you're not still the one
But you still get to me

When I go home, I stay off 285
'Cause I know you're somewhere in that ATL skyline
I heard you're happy now and that's what hurts the most
'Cause I'm in California and I still can't let you go

You still get to me
Every time I find somebody
And I think I'm movin' on
You still get to me
And it still tears me to pieces
Every time I hear that song
'Cause you're not still the one
But you still get to me

Even after all this time
Oh, you still get to me
And there ain't no gettin' over
All these memories, they're killin' me
Even after all this time, oh

You still get to me
Every time I find somebody
And I think I'm movin' on, whoa
You still get to me
And it still tears me to pieces
Every time I hear that song
'Cause you're not still the one
But you still get to me

Suitcase

Yeah, I'm sorry for the way I've been actin'
Runnin' out of time and runnin' on fumes
I'm just tryna keep our very plane from crashin'
'Cause I'm afraid of what you'll find if we do

It ain't lost on me
What the cost gon' be

I got a suitcase
Packed full of lies I keep tellin' myself
'Cause I'm too vain
I hope it's not too late
To leave all this baggage behind
Just need a little more space, a little more time
I just need a little more space, a little more time

A little more (ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
A little more (ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)

Every time I stumble for you
Two steps back and one step forward
And now I'm fallin' down more than I'm fallin' for you
But I adore you, I adore you

I got a suitcase
Packed full of lies I keep tellin' myself
'Cause I'm too vain
I hope it's not too late
To leave all this baggage behind
Just need a little more space, a little more time
I just need a little more space, a little more time

A little more (ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
A little more (ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
A little more (ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)

I just need a little more space, a little more time
I just need a little more space, a little more time

Flame

We should put on your favorite records
Pour a little whiskey too early in the day
We could blame it all on the weather
I swear the connection was better in L.A.
We could use our imagination
Make up a confrontation
For the sake of somethin' goin' on
We should put on our favorite records
If we're lucky, turn tonight into a love song

It's alright
Gonna stay right here 'til it hits us
Even if it takes all night
Gonna find the flame, we've been missin', baby
It's alright
Gonna stay right here 'til it hits us
Even if it takes all night
Gonna find the flame, we've been missin', babe

We could try a couple different angles
Your way or my way, maybe somethin' in between
We could throw it up to the angels
Call it a day, say we gave it everything
Just 'cause we don't see, doesn't mean, doesn't mean it isn't there
Just 'cause we don't feel, it doesn't mean, doesn't mean we don't care, ohh

It's alright
Gonna stay right here 'til it hits us
Even if it takes all night
Gonna find the flame, we've been missin', baby
It's alright
Gonna stay right here 'til it hits us
Even if it takes all night
We're gonna find the flame, we've been missin', baby

Evergreen

Took a while to make this bed
Tired of livin' in my head
The ritual, things I ain't know
Never felt like this before

Oh, I think that I could love you
Through the darkness, through the cold

'Cause I'm feelin' somethin' when you're next to me
You fuel my fire like some kerosene
We're intertwined with nothin' in between
Cross your heart, promise you'll never leave
I'm feelin' somethin' when you're next to me
I have walls up that nobody sees
But you crash through me like an evergreen
Cross your heart, promise you'll never leave

Sorry that my heart's a mess
But you keep me from spirallin'
And I guess when it rains it pours
'Til the sun knocks at your door

Oh, I think that I could love you
Through the darkness, through the cold

'Cause I'm feelin' somethin' when you're next to me
You fuel my fire like some kerosene
We're intertwined with nothin' in between
Cross your heart, promise you'll never leave
I'm feelin' somethin' when you're next to me
I have walls up that nobody sees
But you crash through me like an evergreen
Cross your heart, promise you'll never leave
