Horrorshow – Before The Dawn Lyrics

Why can’t I let go? Or are they the same as me? Thinking as dark as the cloud that is hanging up over my head like the powerlines
Feeling surrounded, no way around it, knowing that I got a mountain to climb
I wanna shout it, think I am going up out of my mind
[Pre-Chorus]
It’s darkest before the dawn
So right now I’m tryna hold on
The calm before the storm
Is when you gotta learn to be strong
‘Cause no one’s gotta take this weight
For me
Hope someone’s gonna say a prayer
For me (Somebody say a prayer for me)
[Chorus]
Why I’m getting this high? I just don’t know (I just don’t know)
I just don’t know (I just don’t know)
Why I’m getting this high? I got nowhere to hide, I can’t take it no more, am I losing my mind? Why can’t I let go? I got nowhere to hide, I can’t take it no more, am I losing my mind? Why I’m feeling this low? Why I’m feeling this low? What I’m doing this for? What I’m doing this for? I just don’t know (I just don’t know)
I just don’t know (I just don’t know)
Why I’m getting this high? Why I’m living this lie? Why can’t I let go? Why I’m living this lie? Just staring, hating their reflection (Question)
Vision is clouded, feeling alone in this room that’s so crowded right? Why I’m feeling this low? I got nowhere to hide, I can’t take it no more, am I losing my mind? Why I’m living this lie? Why can’t I let go? I just don’t know (I just don’t know)
I just don’t know (I just don’t know)
[Verse 2]
Man, I swear this life will eat you up, I swear this life will wear ya down
We all got pain up in our hearts, all got things we’re scared about
See we were taught to hold it in, gotta find a way to let it out
Roll another joint and light it up, write another page and tear it out
Now all those voices in your head, making noise and getting loud
That’ll make you feel like giving up, make you feel like checking out
Got me feeling like a missing person, like no one knows my whereabouts
I should know that people care about me, they’re the same ones I care about
But right now my mind is playing tricks and telling lies, scheming, tryna take control of me
If I lose then I’ma pay the price, got me scared to even go to sleep
Tonight if I should die before I wake, dunno how much more that I can take
Praying I can just hold on until the light of morning breaks
[Pre-Chorus]
It’s darkest before the dawn
So right now I’m tryna hold on
The calm before the storm
Is when you gotta learn to be strong
‘Cause no one’s gotta take this weight
For me
Hope someone’s gonna say a prayer
For me (Somebody say a prayer for me)
[Chorus]
Why I’m getting this high? I got nowhere to hide, I can’t take it no more, am I losing my mind? What I’m doing this for? Why I’m living this lie? [Intro]
It’s darkest before the dawn
So right now I’m tryna hold on
The calm before the storm
Is   when   you gotta learn   to be strong
[Verse 1]
It’s like I don’t   know where to start ’cause there’s so much to say
Had this pain up in my heart when I woke up today
Tell myself this too shall pass, be calm, it’s just a phase
But the breath inside my chest is getting tight, thinking that I just might suffocate
Walking underneath these city lights, all I see is strangers’ faces
And I wonder what would it be like if I could just try trading places
Would the world look any clearer when I looked into the mirror? (Somebody [?])
I just don’t know (I just don’t know)
I just don’t know (I just don’t know)
[Outro]
Somebody [?] Why I’m feeling this low? What I’m doing this for?
