lyrics

It's too late
You've been left in the pouring rain
Faces pressed to the window pane
Seem to mock every word you say
But that's okay

You're resigned
To being one who gets left behind
On your own 'cause you speak your mind
You keep finding the hardest way
But that's okay

Maybe it's the way to sleep at night
(With your peace of mind)
But every single day
Has turned into an uphill fight

Alright
Maybe you told them so
But you told them all about the things
That they already know
Sometimes
It's better to leave unsaid
Honest words that turn some faces red

Play the game
That's the key
No one wants you to disagree
Only show what they want to see
Be the man you used to be

It's too late
You've been left in the pouring rain
Faces pressed to the window pane
Seem to mock every word you say
But that's okay

Maybe it's the way you sleep at night
(With your peace of mind)
But every single day
Has turned into an uphill fight

Alright
Maybe you told them so
But you told them all about the things
That they already know
Sometimes
It's better to leave unsaid
Honest words that turn some faces red

Alright
Maybe you told them so
But you told them all about the things
That they already know
Sometimes
It's better to leave unsaid
