lyrics

I’m so afraid
Of losing what I don’t even have
I’m staying hopeful
Or is that all I’ll ever grasp

(PRECHORUS)
Cause when you’re wading in the waters
We think that six feet ain’t so deep
Don’t lose your grip boy
Hold on tight to what you keep

(CHORUS)
Keep on swimming for the shores
Letting go for so much more
Why AREN'T YOU HAPPY (what makes you)
Push aside whatever's working
You want the best of what you’re not
WHY ARENT YOU HAPPY
HOLDING ONTO WHY YOU FAUGHT

I’m just so sick
Of losing everything around me
No longer hoping
For anything I can’t control

(PRECHORUS)
I just can’t stand the way they sound
Thoughts like their heads are in the ground
Don’t lose your grip boy
Hold on tight to what you keep

(CHORUS)
Keep on swimming for the shores
Letting go for so much more
Why AREN'T YOU HAPPY (What Makes You)
Push aside whatever's working
You want the best of what you’re not
WHY ARENT YOU HAPPY (You're never happy)
HOLD On Tight to WHY YOU FAUGHT



(BRIDGE)

Grass ain’t always greener, on the other side
Starring at your mirror as you’re watching yourself die
Your broken halo you wear it like a crown
Your crown’s so black it weighs you down.

(CHORUS)
Keep on swimming for the shores
Letting go for so much more
Why AREN'T YOU HAPPY (What makes you)
Push aside whatever's working
You want the best of what you’re not
WHY ARENT YOU HAPPY (You’re never happy)
HOLD on tight to WHY YOU FAUGHT
