Descendents — Coolidge lyrics

Well I'm not a cool guy anymore
As if I ever was before
I took a look at all the signs
Then rolled it over in my mind
The feeling I could not release
What was I thinking of?
Became a bitter part of me
It couldn't stay the way it was
I looked at my reflection and I saw a strangers face
I had to walk away
I saw where I was going

I lost a girl, it's just as well
She tried to save me from myself
I still got her on my mind
Tossing and turning in my bed
But if she had stayed another week
I would've dragged her down with me
She took it till she had enough
Its hard to see at all
At the bottom of the barrel
Is that what I thought love was?
I told her see you later but

Well I'm not her cool guy anymore
Your back against the wall
I know you can't escape the past
Left it behind me and locked the door
Now I look back and see just for a laugh
It almost got the best of me
I was my worst enemy
What was I thinking of?
You can only be a victim if you admit defeat
It couldn't stay the way it was
I woke up one day and saw it was only up to me
I woke up one day and saw it was only up to me
You can only be a victim if you admit defeat
