lyrics

I been looking, but can't find a one
A looking glass without a spider web crack
You been looking to find me undone
It shouldn't be that hard

That's what I told you when the walls came crashin'
That's what I said when the words got lost
That's what I told you
It shouldn't be that hard

I'm all to pieces and can't seem to fit
Seeing no sense in going back at all
It's a hard confession to give
"Oh, this shouldn't be that hard"

You've been making that chord
like there's no other way
I've been running the scales
back and forth in the wrong key
Don't it always turn out
harder than you think?
