Dave Ellis: Songs!

Disappear

(Dave Ellis)
If I complain, just slap me
One night stands no longer make me happy
I think I liked you more than I like to admit

I’m a little dehydrated from the beers
And I haven’t been in love in years
Most of the time I feel like shit

When I’m like this, I’m no good to be around
And I don’t want to bring you down
I’m just gonna replay all my mistakes over and over again in my head

I can see my room’s a mess
I hug my pillow close to my chest
Maybe I’ll eat some breakfast if I ever get out of bed

Some days I don’t want to be a hero
I just want to shut out the world with my headphones, here
And I know, I know I can’t stay afraid forever
But for a day or so I can disappear

I’m probably at my worst when I’m angry or sad
I’ve only hurt a few people but I hurt them pretty bad
And my sorrys, they feel hollow in my throat, which is dry

I don’t spend much time reminiscing
Cause there’s not much about my past that I miss
And besides, I’m so broken now I can’t sleep and I can’t cry

Some days I don’t want to be a hero
I just want to shut out the world with my headphones, here
And I know, I know I can’t stay afraid forever
But for a day or so I can disappear

I won’t be found, I won’t be around for the rest of the night
You can’t reach me, you can’t teach me how to feel alright

Some days I don’t want to be a hero anymore
I just want to shut out the world with my headphones, here
And I know, I know I can’t stay afraid forever
But for a day or so I can disappear
