Metric – I Will Never Settle Lyrics

I Will Never Settle Lyrics – ​​​Metric

This is not the song
I wanted to write for you
This is not the way
I wanted to make you feel
The truth is so unkind
I can’t stop the way that it sounds in your mind
It’s loud and it’s distorted
The longer you avoid it

Too much to settle
So I hide in my golden cage
Silence is starving
Humble pie on a paper plate
Going in circles
And my pride is the piece I hold
I will never settle
‘Cause to settle would crush our souls

Too much to settle
Silence is starving
I will never settle
I will never settle

Going in circles
Silence is starving
I will never settle
I will never settle

Caught a glimpse of a normal life
Terrified by the sight
We belong to another time
Dropping vanishing names we knew
But if they don’t care about it
Do you still care about it?

Too much to settle
Silence is starving
I will never settle
I will never settle

(Too much to settle)
So I hide in my golden cage
(Silence is starving)
Humble pie on a paper plate
(Going in circles)
And my pride is the piece I hold
(I will never settle)
‘Cause to settle would crush our souls
To settle would crush our souls

We will never settle, it would crush our souls
Oh, oh
We will never settle, it would crush our souls
Oh, oh

(We will never settle, it would crush our souls)
(Oh, oh)
(We will never settle, it would crush our souls)
(Oh, oh)
