Lyrics Print

It pretty much happened all at once
Either I gave up or everyone gave up on me
I played the part they gave me on the paper
And somehow they turned the script back into the tree

Oh me ... oh my
Oh me ... oh my

I climbed right up to the top of that tall tree
I could see for miles and miles and miles and miles
I looked down and saw the ground rising up at me
Somehow I turned my nightmare into reality

Oh me ... oh my
Oh me ... oh my

All alone
On the ground
I am clinging
Cause there's no one around me now

I tend to mostly lie here and think to myself
Fading visions of a world I once thought would be
Whoever decides who lives and dies is angry with me
They turned me into the casualty

Oh me ... oh my
Oh me ... oh my

I'd still like to think I'm somehow relevant
But let's be real that ship already sailed
I took and had then handed back every opportunity
And somehow turned it into frivolity

Oh me ... oh my
Oh me ... oh my

All alone
On the ground
I am clinging
Cause there's no one around me now

I'm only trying to find a way to tell you
That I understand things and I can help you
I think that I can make the world easier to live in
But I can't find anyone who agrees
Probably cause it hasn't worked for me?

All alone
On the ground
I am clinging
Cause there's no one around me now
