Condescending
Do away with words
We go as far as we dare

But I would not mind at all
Save for this certain fall
I don't even care
I'll just keep on grasping at the air

In the spotlight
Turn the tables now
It doesn't seem very fair

But I would not feel a thing
Walk home in the morning rain
Stories volunteered
Save face year after year, well

When are you going to give
'Cause I'm just tryin' to live

My life
My life
My life
With you

Condescending
Do away with words
We go as far as we dare

But I would not mind at all
Save for this certain fall
I don't even care
I'll just keep on grasping at the air

When are you going to give
'Cause I'm just tryin' to live

My life
My life
My life
Tryin' to live my life
Tryin' to live my life

Just tryin' to live
Tryin' to live my life
With you

Tryin' to live my life
Live my life
Just tryin' to live
Just tryin' to live
Tryin' to live my life
Live my life
Just tryin' to live
Just tryin' to live
