This is How the Story Begins

I'm drowning in loans

I'm down and I'm low

I don't know what I'm capable of, or how

Far that I'll go

They never warned us about the jaundice from the

Drinking I've been sinking and my

Skin is turning yellower than Barney and Moe

And as the pressure keeps building I can feel my sanity wilting

All the addictions are killing me, being impulsive and silly

I'm about as charming as Carling and about as hard as Play-Doh

If you were me I think I would've just dropped you like a sack of potatoes

But you're still here and I feel racked with guilt, I'm struggling to cope

You saved me from the brink and gave me a glimmer of hope

So I'm gonna try to take it make it bigger

Live my life with some vigour and wear my

War wounds like a badge of honour like Principal Skinner

I wanna be a winner

 

Start at the bottom, I can barely see the top

And I know

I've got a long way to go

Then I see that look in your eye

And I find

The good old strength comes back to shine

So to fly

I need to get a couple of wings

This is How the Story Begins

 

Every time I attempt to describe the thoughts in my mind

It's difficult to communicate

You're the strength in my knees, you're the air that I breathe

And without you I buckle and I suffocate

When I'm stressed I can't think straight and I

Crumble under all the pressure on top of me

I wanna reset and start a clean slate

And I know you never even got a proper apology

That's why at night when I'm tryna get a kip

All I can think about is you and what we used to be about

I'm feeling better now I'm getting it out

I'm sick of living in paralysis racked with doubt

As I'm picking up the pace in my recovery

I'm starting to wonder if I can ever be the man I wanna be

But I'm trying my best

Climbing out of the trough

I'm never gonna rest

The shackles are off

 

Start at the bottom, I can barely see the top

And I know

I've got a long way to go

Then I see that look in your eye

And I find

The good old strength comes back to shine

So to fly

I need to get a couple of wings

This is How the Story Begins

 

Help me Lord

To find

The future I'm searching for

And

In time

A world

That's

Good

 

When I'm stressed I can't think straight and I crumble under all the pressure on top of me

(When I'm stressed I can't think straight and I crumble under all the pressure on top of me)

When I'm stressed I can't think straight and I crumble under all the pressure on top of me

I crumble under all the pressure on top of me

I crumble under all the pressure on top of me

When I'm stressed I can't think straight and I crumble under all the pressure on top of me

When I'm stressed I can't think straight and I crumble under all the pressure on top of me

When I'm stressed I can't think straight and I crumble under all the pressure on top of me

I crumble under all the

Crumble under all the

Crumble under all the

Pressure

 

Start at the bottom, I can barely see the top

And I know

I've got a long way to go

Then I see that look in your eye

And I find

The good old strength comes back to shine

So to fly

I need to get a couple of wings
