No Bragging Rights – Downhearted Lyrics

Shutting gates…let me in…

You understand better than anyone
So how could you expect me to go on?
When there is nothing left for me
Just empty seeds and a shell of who I used to be
Downhearted and frustrated on most days
All hope I had is stripped away

So what would you have me do?
I’ve done everything
I already know what they’re gonna say
I see it in their face

“A moment of weakness…a selfish act…”
Proof no one really listens
I took matters into my own hands
…Please understand

Each painful breath feels like a kick in the chest
How could you expect me to go on like this?

Yet they’ll have the nerve to call me “selfish”
“A moment of weakness” a moment of weakness?
This could be the bravest thing I’ll ever do
You have to understand, you have to
If there’s a plan, I don’t see it
If you showed me love, I didn’t feel it
These words aren’t for them, they’re all too late
Please don’t deny me your gates…
So what would have me do?
Already know what they're gonna say
I see it in their face

“A moment of weakness…a selfish act…”
Proof no one really listens
So I took matters into my own hands
…Please understand…please let me in
