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

Tate McRae Distant

I still wait, cause there’s a part of me

Knowing that I need that space to be

Create my path into the unknown

Circle and back into what means most

I keep a distance, but not on purpose

And I can tell you feel the same

The expectations in situations

Are driving me insane

And it don’t matter cause I push right through

Do you understand I’m just like you?

All the doubts that I have ever had

Were never built to last, that’s why were distant

Fall out on purpose

That’s why were di- di- di-

That’s why were distant

It’s hard to know if these thoughts are true

If I’m drifting I’m shifting my point of view

Cause I’ve been told I need to separate

Get away from the crowd and carve my way

I keep a distance, but not on purpose

And I can tell you feel the same

The expectations in situations

Are driving me insane

And it don’t matter cause I push right through

Do you understand I’m just like you?

All the doubts that I have ever had

Were never built to last, that’s why were distant

Fall out on purpose

That’s why were di- di- di-

That’s why were distant

Distant

I keep a distance

But not on purpose

That’s why were different

Tate McRae Hard To Find

Your words hurt more than you think

In your head, these situations end in a blink

But the worst is usually these little lies

Why can’t you see it through my eyes?

I understand you’re trying to be cool

Your so-called friends are slowly transforming you

Into a person I never thought existed

And at the moment, really wish I didn’t

Who are you?

You’re not the girl I used to know

You had my back when I would go

Be there through high and low

Who are you?

It’s like you wanna start a fight

But when I’m the spotlight

Suddenly it’s alright

You’re plastic, imperfect

You’re scared to fall

Try to knock me down

When you find a flaw

These games you play

Are messing with my mind

Making you and I so hard to find

Never thought you’d treat me

Like a fool

But once again, you’ve lost the old you

One day, you’ll have me laughing

Till I can’t breathe

And the next time you even see me

When you look at me with guilt and insecurities

You have to know

You’ve chosen who you want to be

You don’t even think from time to time

That’s why you’re losin’ someone close

And so am I

Who are you?

You’re not the girl I used to know

You had my back when I would go

Be there through high and low

Who are you?

It’s like you wanna start a fight

But when I’m the spotlight

Suddenly it’s alright

You’re plastic, oh perfect

You’re scared to fall

Try to knock me down

When you find a flaw

These games you play

Are messing with my mind

Making you and I so hard to find

We made so many promises

You never really made them

You’d always go and break them

What if it were like when we were kids?

When I told you all my secrets

Back then you would keep them

We both wanted to be on top

We were getting there together

Then came your own measure

So please don’t try to knock me down

No matter what you try I’ll come back around

You’re plastic, oh perfect

You’re scared to fall

Try to knock me down

When you find a flaw

These games you play

Are messing with my mind

Making you and I so hard to find

Tate McRae Strangers

You promised you’d say goodbye

You promised you’d hold me one more time

But you didn’t

You told me I’d always know

You told me to never let you go

So I didn’t

But now it’s far more complicated

You now think I’m overrated

Don’t you? (Don’t you? Don’t you?)

And now my heart will be so broken

As it’s like we’ve never spoken

It’s so new

We’re now like

Strangers

You blame it on the fact

That we’re just stupid teenagers

We’re now like

Strangers

But that’s okay ’cause

We’re just innocent teenagers

I told you, told you it all

My weakness, how to make me fall

I trusted you

Turns out you loved to talk

You were nothing you said you were of

And that’s true

But now it’s far more complicated

You now think I’m overrated

Don’t you? (Don’t you? Don’t you?)

And now my heart will be so broken

As it’s like we’ve never spoken

It’s so new

We’re now like

Strangers

You blame it on the fact

That we’re just stupid teenagers

We’re now like

Strangers

There’s no excuse ’cause

We’re just innocent teenagers

Should’ve known you’d walk around

While someone else was on the ground

You think I would’ve tried

To bring you down

Now, what did it even mean

When you said, you be there for me

Were you faking all that was between?

‘Cause you never said goodbye

You never held me one more time

And you promised

I will never know

Why you ever let me go

Tate McRae Hung Up On You

Do you ever feel like you

Are running in slo-motion?

You ever get that feeling that the door won’t budge

No matter how hard you try?

Do you ever stay up all night?

‘Cause you feel you’re not enough

Well I do…

I think it’s cause I’m still hung up on you

Ooh, ooh

I’m still hung up on you

What have you put me through?

My mind ain’t gotta clue

Oh, oh

Don’t know what to do, I ain’t over you

Oh, oh

When you’re in the middle of a really bad dream

Then you decide that that’s enough

So you try to tell yourself

The fears are all gone

But you just cannot wake up

You ever have those days when you’re stuck in your head

But you can’t explain why?

Well I do…

And this time I ain’t gonna lie

Ooh, ooh

I’m still hung up on you

What have you put me through?

My mind ain’t gotta clue

Oh, oh

Don’t know what to do, I ain’t over you

Oh, oh

Then I start to realize, you’re not there anymore

And I can’t look into your eyes

And feel like before

You will never understand how confusing it was

You never took the time to explain

Why such a long pause…

Ooh, ooh

I’m still hung up on you

What have you put me through?

My mind ain’t gotta clue

Oh, oh

Don’t know what to do, I ain’t over you

Oh, oh

Oh, oh

I don’t know what to do

Oh, oh

I’m still hung up on you

Oh, oh

My mind ain’t gotta clue

Oh, oh

Then I start to realize, you’re not there anymore

And I can’t look into your eyes…

Tate McRae 5 Less Words

So sorry, I ain’t about that small talk

Get to know me and you’ll realize that you got it all wrong

‘Cause I-I-I-I’m not like the other ones

So, I’m sorry for that

I don’t wanna try for you, if

This is just a thing you do, ’cause

There’s enough stuff crammed in my head

So, if I make the time for you, you

Better know just what you’ll lose, when

I end up here with him instead

So sorry, that I make it complicated

But if nothing’s workin’ I ain’t gonna fake it

Oh, I-I’m not scared to call you out

So, don’t back down

‘Cause a girl’s never opened her mouth before

I don’t wanna try for you, if

This is just a thing you do, ’cause

There’s enough stuff crammed in my head

So, if I make the time for you, you

Better know just what you’ll lose, when

I end up here with him instead

Can’t you see I’m tryin’?

I really try to make this work, but

Oh, I am dyin’

When each day there are five less words

Five less words

I don’t wanna try for you, ’cause

This is just a thing you do, and

There’s enough stuff crammed in my head

So, now I’ve made the time for you, I

Thought you’d know just what you’d lose, ’cause

I’m standing here with him instead

Tate McRae Young

Just waiting for the day you kick us out

We already know we’re just too loud

We say a thousand words, can’t control our mouths

So we’re waiting for the day you kick us out

Maybe we don’t understand it

Maybe we haven’t planned it all out

Say we speak another language

Or we’re just tryna figure it out

They say that time is ticking

But what do we have to lose?

We’re supposed to be independent

But we end up getting used

We’re young and a little bit selfish

But dumb and a little bit reckless

Just admit it, admit that our mind chooses the worst

We’re just too young to notice

Tate McRae Shoulder To Shoulder

There ain’t nothing wrong you could say

I can see lies right through your face

I’ve got about an hour or two

The silence is killing you

I cross my heart and hope to die, uh

And I swear I won’t leave till it’s over

I don’t know what I should say

I’ve got about a story or two

The silence doesn’t know you like I do

Just so you know you’re not alone today

We’ll treat it like a summer night, uh

I cross my heart and hope to die, uh

And I swear I won’t leave till it’s over

I’ll be here with you shoulder to shoulder

Give me tears and I’ll give you tissues

Give me years and I’ll be here listening
