"Paint" by Ekoh ft. Josh Rabenold

lyrics

VERSE 1:

Here we go,
Same old question.
Got it on repeat or somethin like,
They won't ever know how who u are,
if you just keep smiling......
so I just keep smiling.
Like everything's gon be alright.
Sometimes I just wanna go back home,
Crawl back in the bed and go back to my childhood in 2002,
I could still dream,
But didn't need to.
Now i feel so see through.
Scared of the present,
past is a lesson,
and I don't want a sequel.
Everybody thinks they know me,
if that's true, why am I so lonely?
On the outside lookin in,
and my own reflections like,
"where you been?"
Hey it's me again,
Nice to meet again,
Mr. I don't want your help,
I don't need a friend.
Think you got it all figured out? you don't,
Think time is gunna help you change? it won't.
We both know,
You can only get so low.
Hiding all the thoughts that you write but you don't show.
It's all good till you lose yourself,
And we both know the way that feels.
Put on your back so stressful,
Hold tight don't let go,
bet those thoughts still echo through that home you grew up in it's not so simple.
Look at them,
So quick to judge, hate,
admire and love.
Anything or anyone you paint your picture of.

Chorus:

I'm gunna paint you a portrait
I'm gunna cover up the flaws
You'll only see what I put in the frame
Hanging on the wall
I'm gunna draw you a picture
Of a man who has it all
You'll never see any of the pain
Hanging on the wall

VERSE 2:
Tryin to grow with the changes,
Rearrange my focus,
Keep the surface clean,
What I mean when I change your view, its like movin of a paint brush.....
See we all got the things we want to show,
It's not easy to
Come clean to you.
And I don't mean to be rude,
But my skins so uncomfortable.
I just, wanna run,
Chase the sun around,
Life's been so dark in this town.
It's hard to try to get up when your so fucked and become so used to being down.
It's when the drugs stop workin.
And the pain's still present,
I'm not as strong as I claim to be I'm just,
Still here to deliver this message.
Need to turn back,
I don't deserve that
Eventually the picture will turn black
And I'll be ghost,
Wanna see everything that I try to hide? cuz I don't confide in you,
you just don't get it,
I'm too different, so pathetic.
Dont pay, but I feel so indebted.
So ugly so disconnected.
Put a front for the world to see I just,
Don't wanna be told I'm not enough.
Stuff all of the probelms down,
And I color this canvas with broken crayons.
All pain in the process
I'm like, "I'm fine I got this"
Change the topic
Here it is
I'll paint a picture to leave you with.

Chorus:

I'm gunna paint you a portrait
I'm gunna cover up the flaws
You'll only see what I put in the frame
Hanging on the wall
I'm gunna draw you a picture
Of a man who has it all
You'll never see any of the pain
Hanging on the wall

Bridge:

One day we can watch this fall apart and you'll see me,
What's the point when I'm scared to move?
I feel so low compared to you and I'm sinkin....
Don't cry for help,
I use the map I draw myself,
And still pretend my love is not a broken compass......

Cuz I know the feelings,
But still haven't felt em and
I'm still here waiting for this to develop I'm
Livin my life up under this umbrella,
The color is gone, I know that it's wrong but I can't stop it.....
I can't face this truth
When I'm breaking down and it never shows,
Just know I did this all for you...
