This is Where I Gave Up

about

Referred to by Joylene as "possibly our most Honest Mistakey song," it was almost the title track, but that was deemed too depressing, even for us.

lyrics

You'd never know it to look at me here
But this is where I gave up
Surrounded by beige and succumbing to fear
This is where I gave up
Making excuses for watery eyes
This is where I gave up
Skipping the party and lengthy goodbyes
This is where I gave up

Tell my friends while
It may seem uncertain
I'm not in danger of hurting myself
I’ve just drained the last of this cup
Cause this is where I gave up

Wandered around til I finally found
This is where I gave up
Head to the storm clouds and starting to drown
This is where I gave up
Call to the bullpen, the starter is gassed
This is where I gave up
This chapter is over, the moment has passed
This is where I gave up

Tell my friends while
It may seem uncertain
I'm not in danger of hurting myself
I’ve just drained the last of this cup
Cause this is where I gave up

I gave up
Don't let it get you down
I gave up
Maybe I'll come around
I won't come around

Growing it in and just letting it go
This is where I gave up
Freeing to think I don't care if you know
This is where I gave up
Maybe a good time to drive off the road
This is where I gave up
Or keep it all in til I finally explode

Tell your friends while
I might draw the curtain
I'm not gone, maybe only flirting with something I could never hope to save up
Cause this is where I gave up
