Written by Grace Petrie

lyrics

I used to think I’d change the world if I could write a song
Good enough to make you see the truth
But everything I touch has turned to ruin and gone wrong
And I can’t believe the arrogance of youth
I know the world is turning when it feels like standing still
Or slipping ever backwards by degrees
But it feels like I’m always dying on the least productive hill
And I haven’t even planted any trees
And all my chords
All of my G major chords,
You know they couldn’t move the House of Lords
All I felt
All the pain I ever felt 
It never stopped the ice caps melt
Some days this world
It makes me hide beneath the covers
But some days are worse than others

I used to think my heart was so reliable and strong
Steady ‘neath your feet as frozen ground
Believing all the promises of poetry and song
I never dreamt how far I’d let you down
And I know I am remembered for the shattering of dreams
Never for the time I held the roof
Our fossilised worst moments held forever in extremes
And I console myself with versions truth
For all I gave
For all I told myself I gave
I really thought that I was being brave
For all I swore
Ever steady, ever more
It comes to nothing if you’re keeping score
Some nights I can answer the charges of those lovers
Some nights are worse than others

I used to think my stories were the place I could be known
And told them without having to pretend
Now finally old enough to know that I’m not fully grown
I see that I don’t know how they will end
The skins I shed, the roads I tread, the ways that I have fared
Have turned me into someone not the same
And some days I feel the anchor of the years that we have shared
But some days I can only feel the chain
And it washes off
Yeah it all just washes off
And my arms will always be too soft
And I understand
Maybe I finally understand
That I might never know just who I am
Some days I still wake up jealous of my brothers
Some days are worse than others

Some days I still
Want to hide beneath the covers
Wonder how we will recover
Search the eyes of friends and lovers
For a sign of my true colours
But some days are worse
Some days are worse than others
