a ballad of summer

can’t think of the best day
you had in quite a while
can’t remember the last time
you slept really well
but still there’s so much to hold on to
yeah, there is

you can’t say that
this is only your fault
you can’t blame
yourself with all of it, oh no
you should have
the strength to push through, oh

I heard you say
you can’t go on like this
that you’re lost in space
and find no way out
think you’re on your own
think you’re all alone

life’s not always
the way we want it to be
you need to fall or
fly so high to see your dreams
and yet no one knows what may be
right around the next corner

I heard you say
you can’t go on like this
and i saw you cry, there
underneath your sheets
there’s no place to hide
and there is no time, anymore

I thought I heard you say
you can’t go on like this
don’t waste your time
being sorry for yourself

did you really say
you can’t go on like this?
you should try to smile
smile once in a while
you’re not the type
you’re not alright
right now, anyway
