lyrics

Words & Music: M. Alexa
© Matthew Alexa 2013

I’m drifting to the ceiling
Reaching for the words to hold onto
And I’ve got this sinking feeling
That you don’t want to hear the truth
I could melt into the distance
To forget the state I’m in
But instead I’m left to wonder
If life’s a string of broken promises
But that ain’t nothing new for me and you

Cause we’ve been this way forever
And we just don’t fit together
Our luck has run out on us
Down the drain with the trust that we had
And we just can’t live this way
Forever

You’re always the pretender
Living in a world of your design
But you’re not fooling me anymore
Cause I can read you line by line
But that ain’t nothing new for me and you

Cause we’ve been this way forever
And we just don’t fit together
Our luck has run out on us
Down the drain with the trust that we had
And we just can’t live this way forever

If I could bring back part of the sun
To shine on our darkest days I would
But it wouldn’t make a difference
To me or you and that’s the truth
Oh, that’s the truth

Cause we’ve been this way forever
And we just don’t fit together
Our luck has run out on us
Down the drain with the trust that we had
And we just can’t live this way no

Cause we’ve been this way forever
And that’s long enough
When we just don’t fit together
Our luck has run out on us
Down the drain with the trust that we had
And we just can’t live this way
And we just can’t live this way
Forever

about

Matthew Alexa Halifax, Nova Scotia

Matthew Alexa’s, self-produced debut album Chasing Airplanes is firmly planted in today’s modern rock, but draws on elements of American country and blues. The album is authentic and organic, relying more on recorded guitars, bass, fiddle, string quartets, percussion and background vocals than programmed sounds. ... more
