Tate McRae 3am

Some days

I wonder why the sky’s so grey

Some days

I wonder if I’m on the same page

Oh all the voices

And noises

And all these bad choices

It’s crazy, I haven’t gone insane

And all the people, so careless

Who I can’t comfort yet

‘Cause you’ll know

I’ll just get in the way

So at 3 am

I go to the roof

And I talk back

To the moon

Oh at 3am

I look up to the sky

And always wonder why

I’m not like anyone else, else

(Not like anyone else, else,)

But I’ll never change

Myself

Most days

I wonder why they’re all so fake

Most days

I try to understand

It’s just a phase

Oh all the voices

And noises

And all these bad choices

It’s crazy, I haven’t gone insane

And all the people, so careless

Who I can’t comfort yet

Cause you’ll know

I’ll just get in the way

So at 3 am

I go to the roof

And I talk back

To the moon

Oh at 3am

I look up to the sky

And always wonder why

I’m not like anyone else, else

(Not like anyone else, else,)

But I’ll never change

Myself

3am, once again, talking back

With my favourite friend

It is tough, and hard to tell

But one day they’ll

Wish they were

Themselves

Tate McRae One Day

She stares at her ceiling once again

With a hundred thoughts

“Maybe he knows who I am”

“Actually, probably not”

She walks down the hall with her head down low

Scared to meet his eyes

Even when she hears his voice

She swarmed with butterflies

It’s impossible to get you off my mind

I think about a hundred thoughts and you are 99

I’ve understood that you will never be mine

And that’s fine I’m just breaking inside

He always walks the crowded halls

And is blinded by this light

A girl who keeps her head down low

And never shows her eyes

He’s tried to talk to her

But there’s no easy way

‘Cause every time he raises his voice

She runs away

Oh, it’s impossible to get you off my mind

I think about a hundred thoughts and you are 99

I’ve understood that you will never be mine

And that’s fine I’m just breaking inside

And one day

Maybe she’ll stay

And start to head over his way

And one day

She’ll look into his eyes

And instead of breaking

She’ll call him mine

One day

He’ll grab her by the waist

And force them to meet face to face

And one day

He’ll look into her eyes

And say that “you’re my only light”

Oh, it’s impossible to get you off my mind

I think about a hundred thoughts and you are 99

[Video version:]

Maybe there’s a chance that you will be mine

But right now… I’m just broken inside

[Single version:]

I understand that you will never be mine

And that’s fine, I’m just breaking inside

Tate McRae Movies End

She met him in the summer when things were chill

Sun-kissed and slightly burned, doin’ it for the thrill

Oh, it was picture perfect, usually can’t find that

But what always crossed her mind was that

If life’s like a movie, do all things stop?

After the kiss, does the curtain drop?

If all feels so perfect, what happens next?

‘Cause we all know that deep down all the movies end

Stayed up until the sun died, sat ‘neath the stars

But still beneath his bad eyes she still knew there were scars

They said “it’s picture perfect” usually can’t find that

But what always crossed her mind was that

If life’s like a movie, do all things stop?

After the kiss, does the curtain drop?

If all feels so perfect, what happens next?

‘Cause we all know that deep down all the movies end

As the days go by my heart will sink

As nothing really matters more than this moment

Close my eyes I can’t blink

I can’t waste another second just thinking

‘Bout the movies and all their endings

Cause they mean nothing when they don’t got good beginnings

Oh all the movies and their endings

Oh if life’s like a movie, don’t make it stop

After the kiss, raise the curtain up

If all feels so perfect, think bout what’s next

‘Cause if you like the movie then watch it again

Tate McRae Remembering

I’m waking from this dream, returning to reality is so bittersweet

But I open my eyes and the illusion is fading, slipping away

It was just within reach, yet so far

I lay here all alone once more

I dreamed you were beside me

You were there once again, as if you had never left and

I remember wanting to say, asking you not to go, but I know that was impossible then

You say, I can’t stay here as my damp eyes open

The sun shines on the bleak horizon

It’s just another day

I look out at dimly lit buildings and think of you

And I imagining, you here, right next to me

Your eyes catch my own, I look back fleetingly, before I realized you’re really there

I dreamed you’d be beside me, that we will meet again

Your eyes glisten, your tears are falling

I know you have not forgotten the past that we shared as I quietly watch you wipe

Your tears away

Although I’ve found you, I know this meeting will not last

I have to let go continue finding a way, though I will miss you

It’s time to wake up from this dream

Tate McRae School Kids

Guess I’ve been wishing for

Things I’ve already done

Guess I’m humming out

Songs already been sung

Guess I’m thinking out loud… again

I’m talking again

Talking way too much

Rambling my way in

Like I’m scared of your touch

Here I am again

Back to the start

You twist up my head, so it’s unclear

I thought I moved on but I’m back here

Tryna move slow so I don’t fall

Back down the hole that got me started now

Fixing myself with a tool kit

I just can’t look back to the school kids

Cuz they messed me up and then walked away

Tryna run, run

As fast as I can from

All the rules that they’d bend cuz

It was easier to just run

I’ll run, run

From all the damage that they’ve done

Don’t even know it but it hurt a ton

I’m just gonna run

Been overthinking things

But that you already knew

You think that shiny things

Would cover up what you do?

My head really hurts

You twist up my head, so it’s unclear

I thought I moved on but I’m back here

Tryna move slow so I don’t fall

Back down the hole that got me started now

Fixing myself with a tool kit

I just can’t look back to the school kids

Cuz they messed me up and then walked away

Tryna run, run

As fast as I can from

All the rules that they’d bend cuz

It was easier to just run

Tate McRae Come Around

If you think I’m perfect

I am not

Like I know my way

Well I am lost

If you think I have my life laid out

I don’t…

But Imma work it out

Get to know me and you’ll see

We’re all the same

Slightly crazy

If you think I’m on a better route

I’m not…

But Imma work it out

We fail, we fall

We think we’ve lost it all

We love, we hate

We make a lot of mistakes

We grow, we learn

It’s scary thinking it’s our turn

But right now, let’s just live

Cause we are young

And we don’t know who we are

But that’s okay

Cause we’re not that far

From figuring it all out

Just wait and you will see

That I will come around

Some days I’d rather stay in bed

Cause nothin’s worse than getting in my head

And others just wanna scream and shout

I will…

Once I work it out

We fail, we fall

We think we’ve lost it all

We love, we hate

We make a lot of mistakes

We grow, we learn

It’s scary thinking it’s our turn

But right now, let’s just live

Cause we are young

And we don’t know who we are

But that’s okay

Cause we’re not that far

From figuring it all out

Just wait and you will see

That I will come around

Sometimes I feel like I’m falling

And there’s no one to help me up

But we are young

And we don’t know who we are

But that’s OK

Cause we’re not that far

From figuring it all out

Just wait and you will see that I…

Oh, we are young

And we don’t know who we are

But that’s okay

Cause we’re not that far

From figuring it all out

Just wait and you will see

That I will come around

Tate McRae Can’t Get It Out

Been tryna tell you

But your ego’s too loud

Been tryna find you

But you’re stuck in the crowd

Been really trying for a while now

But I

I can’t get it

I, I can’t get it out

Oh every

Thought gets harder to say

When every single word

Gets washed away

By your ability to

Make it seem like

Life won’t ever

Be a dream

Oh I’ve been trying

But I can’t get it out

Oh I’ve been trying

But I can’t get it out

Feel like we’re closer

Then we’re miles apart

Feel like we’re dreaming

Then you shatter my heart

Feel like we’re moving then we’re back to the start

Oh I

I can’t get it

I, I can’t get it out

Oh every thought gets harder to say

When every single word gets washed away

By your ability to make it seem like

Life won’t ever

Be a dream

Oh I’ve been trying but I can’t get it out

Oh I’ve been trying but I can’t get it out

Every time I feel I’m tumbling down

I fix myself

And get around

And every time

I wanna scream and shout

I feel I’m caught

And can’t get out

Every thought

Get’s harder to say

When every single word

Gets washed away

By your

Ability to make it seem like

Life won’t ever

Be a dream

Oh I’ve been trying

But I can’t get it out

Oh every thought gets harder to say

When every single word

Gets washed away

By your ability to

Make it seem like

Life won’t ever

Be a dream

Oh I’ve been trying but I can’t get it out

Oh I’ve been trying but I can’t get it out

Tate McRae The Kids We Used To Know

Shut down the feelin’

That someone was there for me

Closed off my senses

That maybe one day I’d see

A day where it wouldn’t hurt, not

Spendin’ hours lookin’ for the words, that I

Couldn’t say ’cause it wasn’t worth it

I shouldn’t speak if I ain’t perfect

Just a day where I wasn’t broken

All the lies out in the open

Maybe then all my numb emotions

Will come back around

Where did they go?

The kids we used to know

They’re so far from home

We built so long ago

We’re so stuck in our own heads

That they’re not even workin’

Where did they go?

Maybe it’s better

That nobody knows my mind, ’cause

I can’t remember speakin’

Without sayin’, “Sorry, I’m lookin’ for…

A day where it wouldn’t hurt, not

Spendin’ hours lookin’ for the words, that I

Couldn’t say ’cause it wasn’t worth it

I shouldn’t speak if I ain’t perfect

Just a day where I wasn’t broken

All the lies out in the open

Maybe then all my numb emotions

Will come back around

Where did they go?

The kids we used to know

They’re so far from home

We built so long ago

We’re so stuck in our own heads

That they’re not even workin’

Where did they go?

Tate McRae Stress Me Out

Little mystery never hurt

But darling you’ve misunderstood

Never wanted this to change

I’ll admit it’s been awhile

But that don’t mean I’ve lost my vibe

I swear that I’ll never change

Watcha doing now

Center of the crowd

Swear you’re tryna stare me down, ah-ah

Watchu talking bout

Keep running your mouth

Why you gotta stress me out? Ooh-ooh

I’m stressed out now

If you don’t feel it’s not the same

Something ain’t clicking in your brain

Or you don’t know what to say, ooh-ooh

What about the countless hours

Where we shared our deep desires

Or maybe you weren’t listening

Watcha doing now

Center of the crowd

Swear you’re tryna stare me down, ah-ah

Watchu talking bout

Keep running your mouth

Why you gotta stress me out?

I’m stressed out out

Why you gotta stress me out?

Tate McRae All My Friends Are Broken

Maybe I’m ge’n’ more numb

‘Cause I keep bi’n’ my tongue

Keepin’ all the words in

I shoulda said, but I’m young

Immature an’ stupid

So I just keep my mouth closed

Lock it with a key an’ then

Block it out with music

Maybe I’m feeling empty

Wond’ring why I’m lonely

All my friends be leavin’

To figure out what’s trendy

It’s hard enough already

Dealin’ with the drama

Don’t wanna be involved in

But somehow I’m still callin’

Friends until it’s morning

‘Cause all their hearts be broken

Their heads, they be exploding

‘Cause boy, he didn’t notice

She can’t even focus

She’s been fallin’ so hard

But it never stops ’cause

She’s fallin’ in slow motion

Why you gotta question

All of my emotions?

I told you, can’t explain them

Especially at my lowest

I be feelin’ nothin’

What’s human connection?

All we got it snapchat

No talkin’, we just textin’

Why you hurtin’?

You’ve been high up in the clouds

Let me know when

You’ll decide to come back down

Why you hurtin’?

Yeah, I know you overthink

Let me know when

A tear won’t fall each time you blink

Why you hurtin’?

I know ev’rything’s a mess

But don’t burn yet

I don’t think the fire’s dead
