Allen Stone Breathe Anymore

‘Cause I got a hole deep down in my soul,

And I don’t wanna let nobody know,

So I’ll just bury myself deep inside till I can’t breathe anymore,

I can’t decide,

If I wanna live or if I wanna die,

Will this pain ever subside,

Or is this the last night of my life?

Oh, oh,

‘Cause I got a hole deep down in my soul,

And I don’t wanna let nobody know,

So I’ll just bury myself deep inside till I can’t breathe anymore,

And this can’t be true,

Nobody’s ever felt like I do,

And I’m so confused,

Have I already tied my noose?

Oh, oh, oh,

‘Cause I got a hole deep down in my soul,

And I don’t wanna let nobody know,

So I’ll just bury myself deep inside till I can’t breathe anymore, ah, yeah,

Oh, well, I’ve got the hole deep down in my soul,

And I don’t wanna let nobody know,

So I’ll just bury myself deep inside till I can’t breathe anymore.

Allen Stone Circle

Time – what’s with all this time

The world rotates as I fall behind

Change – what’s with all this change

Years go by but I stay the same

Fear – what’s with all this fear

I push back but it always stays here

Pace – how can I keep this pace

The damage done is now taken shape

Inside of this circle there are no corners to hide

Every line I follow lead me back inside

Gravity pulls me from the center every time

And gravity pulls me from my center every time

Hope – where did I lose my hope?

Life moves quick when you’re quick to choke

Faith – where can a man find faith?

The damage done is now taking shape

Inside of this circle there are no corners to hide

Every line I follow leads me back inside

Gravity pulls me from my center every time

And gravity pulls me from my center every time

Inside of this circle there are no corners to hide

Every line I follow leads me back inside

Gravity pulls me from my center every time

Gravity pulls me from my center every time

Allen Stone American Privilege

Oh, it doesn’t seem right that I, I was born white

And my parents don’t fight, told me they love me each night

I, I don’t lose sleep for kids sewing my sheets

Or the ones stitching my sneaks, as long as I can buy ’em both cheap

American privilege, is blurring my vision, inherited sickness

American privilege, is blurring my vision, inherited sickness

Everyday I, piss money away, I’m a material slave

Just tryna polish this ball and this chain

Cause I, I don’t think twice, just keep it out of my sight, oh

Bitch don’t kill my vibe, no, bitch don’t kill my vibe

American privilege, keeps blurring my vision, inherited sickness

American privilege, keeps blurring my vision, inherited sickness

(Robbing Peter to pay Paul)

(Cash that paycheck, spend it all)

(Build that house up big and tall)

(Robbing Peter to pay Paul)

(Robbing Peter to pay Paul)

As long as I stay comfortable

(Cash that paycheck, spend it all)

On shit I’ll throw away next fall

(Build that house up big and tall)

Break the bank to build the wall

(Robbing Peter to pay Paul)

As long as I stay comfortable

(Robbing Peter to pay Paul)

American privilege, keeps blurring my vision, inherited sickness

American privilege, keeps blurring my vision, inherited sickness

Allen Stone Better Off This Way

I always catch you when you fall,

And I am always there when life’s mountains seem too tall,

And I give you space, but I always hear your call,

Maybe I’ll be better after all,

And you never catch me when I fall,

Oh, and you never go out of your way to make me feel beautiful,

You’re my baby and I am your fool,

Maybe I’ll be better without you,

Maybe I’ll be better without you,

Done, giving you my heart when your heart’s with someone else,

And ’cause I’m done putting you first when you only care ’bout yourself, yeah,

And I’m tired of begging you to stay,

Allen Stone Barbwire

She moves just like water

Like rain fallin’ down

Soft as the wind

When she opens her mouth

She’s got eyes like the stars

And the moon for her heart

She glows through the night

And illuminates the dark

We’re higher and higher

There’s no where I wouldn’t go

And farther and farther

Well, baby, you’ve gotta know

Walk on barbwire

To get closer to you

And run through bonfires

To show you my love’s true

I’d give my life away

To make sure you were safe

I’d walk on barbwire

Barbwire

What’s a little blood

Mm, if it’s all for love

She dances like fire

I’m melting for more

Burning desire down to my core

She’s got eyes like the stars

And the moon for her heart

Swim ‘cross to an ocean

Just to die at her door

We’re higher and higher

There’s no where I wouldn’t go

And farther and farther

Well, baby, you’ve gotta know

Walk on barbwire

To get closer to you

And run through bonfires

To show you my love’s true

I’d give my life away

To make sure you were safe

I’d walk on barbwire

Barbwire

What’s a little blood

No, if it’s all for love

What’s a little blood

If it’s all for love

I don’t wanna wait

Higher and higher

There’s no where I wouldn’t go

Farther and farther

Well, baby, you’ve gotta

Walk on barbwire

To get closer to you

And run through bonfires

To show you my love’s true

I’d give my life away

To make sure you were safe

I’d walk on barbwire

Barbwire

What’s a little blood

Oh, if it’s all for love

Yeah, what’s a little blood

If it’s all for love

Allen Stone Bed I Made

I took a plane over the stars

It didn’t get me very far

Cause all my problems, they follow me

I flew to the moon

But it wasn’t far enough away from you

Cause all our problems, they follow me

And every night, I close my eyes

And all my troubles fade

And every morning when I rise

I’m just sleeping in this bed I made

One million times inside of my mind

I have justified, baby

But all my problems still follow me

And I discovered a way to cleverly avoid the blame

But all my problems still follow me

And every night, I close my eyes

All my troubles fade

But every morning when I rise

I’m just sleeping in this bed I made

I can’t outrun the pain, oh

Should have faced these demons as they came, yeah

And what I wouldn’t trade

To make some room in this bed I made

Cause every night, I close my eyes

And all my troubles fade

But every morning when I rise

I’m just sleeping in this bed [x2]

I’m just sleeping in this bed I made
