Dawes – Me Especially Lyrics

Me Especially Lyrics by Dawes

As far as I could tell
I was the center of the universe
The favorite step-child of our Mother Earth
And every camera’s dream

‘Til something broke the spell
And the cold hard facts I was hiding from
Were at the mercy of the pendulum
And I was smashed to smithereens

Let’s try and have some fun tonight
Let’s act like we got nowhere else to be

Like we’re just as young as we used to be
That goes for everyone but me especially

Documents and names
An eye twitch away from what they really mean
In the shadow world of the in-betweens
That’s surrounds us on all sides

You can look the other way
In fact, that’s all I did until recently
‘Til the expiration of my amnesty
Left me nowhere else to hide

Let’s try and have some fun tonight
Let’s act it could always be this good

Like we’re just as young as we used to be
That goes for everyone but me especially

A flat lining learning curve
On the last leg with low reserves
A desperado that lost his nerve
Trying now to serve
Teach me how to serve

‘Cause we’re not as young as we used to be
And it goes for everyone but me especially

Why am I still the youngest guy my age?
Why am I still reading the same page?
I know it’s hard for everyone but me especially
And you especially
