Miserable At Best – Mayday Parade

you’re trying your hardest
and the hardest part is letting go
of the nights we shared
Ocala is calling and you know it’s haunting
but compared to your eyes
nothing shines quite as bright
and when we looked to the sky
it’s not mine but i want it
so…

[chorus]
lets not pretend like you’re alone tonight
(I know he’s there and)
you’re probably hanging out and making eyes
(while across the room he stares)
I’ll bet he gets the nerve to walk the floor
and ask my girl to dance
she’ll say yes
(because these words were never easier for me to say or her to second guess but i guess)
that i can live without but
(without I’ll be miserable at best)

you’re all that i hoped I’d find
in every single way
and everything i would give
is everything you couldn’t take
cause nothing feels like home
you’re a thousand miles away
and the hardest part of living
is just taking breaths to stay
cause i know I’m good for something
i just haven’t found it yet
and i need it
so…

[chorus]
lets not pretend like you’re alone tonight
(I know he’s there and)
you’re probably hanging out and making eyes
(while across the room he stares)
I’ll bet he gets the nerve to walk the floor
and ask my girl to dance
she’ll say yes
(because these words were never easier for me to say or her to second guess but i guess)
that i can live without but
(without I’ll be miserable at best)

and this will be the first time in a week
that I’ll talk to you and i can’t speak
it’s been 3 whole days since I’ve had sleep
cause i dream of his lips on your cheek
and i got the point that i should leave you alone
but we both know that I’m not that strong
and i miss the lips that made me fly
so…

[chorus]
lets not pretend like you’re alone tonight
(I know he’s there and)
you’re probably hanging out and making eyes
(while across the room he stares)
I’ll bet he gets the nerve to walk the floor
and ask my girl to dance
she’ll say yes
(because these words were never easier for me to say or her to second guess but i guess)
that i can live without but
(without I’ll be miserable)
and i can live without but
(without I’ll be miserable)
and i can live without but
(oh without I’ll be miserable at best)
