Not Gonna Be Me

Lyrics

Lying in bed in my home socks
It’s three AM in the morning
Staring at a screen til my eyes are red
Looking like I’m an inch from dead
But I’m living

Putting my money where my mouth is
Grinding out the work day grind
Working overtime
Cause I know I need to
Give this everything I have
I’m bleeding through the journey to reach the end
And though I’ll screw it up then
I’ll suck it in and
And fix it up again

Cause this could be my break
I’ll see it to the end
I’m not gonna let things pass me by again
I’ve slipped into the cracks
Backed out before the win
I’m not gonna let things pass me by again
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time

Things are getting blurry and
The clock is playing games with my mind (oh)
I’m everything but ready and
Anything but keen to burn the night (oo)

Putting my money where my mouth is
Grinding out the work day grind
Working overtime
Cause I know I need to
Give this everything I have
I’m close to lost in unconsciousness
The caffeine’s spent and I’m swimming through cement
But I gotta push through this

Cause this could be my break
I’ll see it to the end
I’m not gonna let things pass me by again
I’ve slipped into the cracks
Backed out before the win
I’m not gonna let things pass me by again
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time

Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh

That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me this time
That’s not gonna be me
