Old Ways

Lyricist:     Composer:

It was fun
Playing with knives
Until the blade
Stuck in the left side of my chest
Surpri-i-i-ise
Knocked down again
I turn the page
The story's mine
No more watching the world from my doorstep

Passing me by
(Passing me by)

And I'll just keep changing these colors, colors, colors, colors
I'm not in the same place that I was, I was, I was, I was
But if somebody tells me
I go back to my old ways
I'm gonna say no way
I'm out of the doorway
I'm hearing them all say I'll go back to my old ways
Not going back to my old ways

(Ways, ways)
Not going back to my old ways
(Ways, ways)
(not going back to my old ways)
Now I know what's good for me
All that I need
And I can't wait to sink my teeth in
And take another bite
And the best part about it

Is I'm the only who can do something about it
I fill the well with some water

It's overflowing
Black into gold
Who knew it'd be so bright without the blindfolds
And I just keep changing these colors, colors, colors, colors
I'm not in the same place that I was, I was, I was, I was
But if somebody tells me
I'll go back to my old ways
I'm gonna say no way
I'm out of the doorway

I'm hearing them all say
I'll go back to my old ways
Not going back to my old ways
(Ways, ways)
Not going back to my old ways
(Ways, ways)
(Not going back to my old ways)
Every scar

The flames burnt them all
I'm not afraid to fall

I'm spiralling
I'm spiralling

Oh
Past the stars

I'm not burning out
I'm not afraid to fall
I'm not afraid anymore
And I just keep changing my colors
I'm not in the same place that I was, I was
And the best part about it (Oh)
Is I'm the only who can do something about it (Oh)
I fill the well with some water
Black into gold
Who knew it'd be so bright without the blindfold
And I just keep changing these colors, colors, colors, colors (changing)
I'm not in the same place that I was, I was, I was, I was (same place)
But if somebody tells me
I'll go back to my old ways (no way)
I'm gonna say no way (no way)
I'm out of the doorway (oh, way)
I'm hearing them all say
I'll go back to my old ways
Not going back to my old ways
