As It Is - Until I Return Lyrics




You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight
I still lose my way from time to time
You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight
I promise I'll fight, but I can't promise that I'll be fine

You treated the damage that I let reside in my fragile mind
With stitches and bandage
You took the fault in my scars and you made it ours

I feel at home when you're lying next to me
But I fall apart when an ocean's in between

You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight
I still lose my way from time to time
You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight
I promise I'll fight, but I can't promise that I'll be fine

I can't promise that I'll be fine
I can't promise that I'll be fine

My life's been unraveling
As my legs give way to the crushing weight
Of the shame I've been battling
You're my one true north when I veer off course

I feel at home when you're lying next to me
But I fall apart when an ocean's in between

You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight
I still lose my way from time to time
You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight
I promise I'll fight, but I can't promise that I'll be fine

I can't promise that I'll be fine
I can't promise that I'll be fine

Keep me in your mind
I'm spinning out of control, more than I want you to know
Keep me by your side
I'm spinning out of control, more than I want you to know
I survey the damage
Haunting me again; will it ever end?
But stitches and bandage
They're a short-term cure until the pain returns

You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight
I still lose my way from time to time
You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight
I promise I'll fight, yeah I promise I'll fight
You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight
I still lose my way from time to time
'Cause you save my life more times than I'd like
I promise I'll fight, but I can't promise that I'll be fine

As It Is Until I Return Comments
  1. snootyboop

    The best part is 0:00 - 3:32

  2. [broken machine]

    I actually used to think that Ben’s vocals were still Patty singing, even though now that I keep listening, they don’t sound alike.

  3. Cameron Lewis

    so at this poin t the album is released, and this is the best album yet, i think

  4. Alex Williams

    Nuketown?

  5. David Hudman

    Wow, this song is actually pretty awesome to only be at 55k views. Found it randomly.

  6. Lillian Roberts

    Okay but can someone tell me what a "pseudo video" is?

  7. Hannah Laurel

    I'm seeing As It Is and All Time Low on the 22nd of August!!! So excited! I love them both ❤️

  8. Isi Garza

    Am I the only one that wants to see Patty play instruments on stage with the band?

  9. Mirry

    I CAN'T PROMISE THAT I'LL BE FINE

  10. Salvador Luís

    Somehow, this reminds me Ben Folds. Anyone?

  11. Alex Naples

    I think okay has a bit more variety in sound of individual sings than Never Happy Ever After did. I've heard some people say that a lot of their songs sound the same, and I can sort of understand that, but I think there's a variety on this album.

  12. kimijin kk

    Love u guys♪

  13. Andika Aditya

    I jump into my bed after hear the chorus shit!👌🤘

  14. Rome Joseph

    this album art feels like fallout

  15. Norma Rivas

    This is one of my favorite songs from the new album. This is so amazing 🖤

  16. Léa Roy

    Pop punk jam, must be awesome live! I just wanna dance and jump to this, it's, again, another amazing song!

  17. skyeirene •

    My favorite from Okay.

  18. Ed Alexander

    This is such a beautiful song. The guitar is so generic pop punk but in a good way. The chorus is so catchy. It's all upbeat and legit makes me want to yell the words blasting it down the highway. Good job with the album guys. It's so amazing

  19. Timexdistance

    i really love this album.

  20. lol Maya

    What is a pseudo video and why does only this song get one?

    awesomesauce

    It means that the video gets put on pornhub

  21. Karly Kramer

    This album is so depressing but beautiful, I fell in love

  22. Yan Blanchette

    Best Pop Punk riff, seriously.

  23. juicyjuice300

    This track is one of my favorites because it still sounds like a "Never Happy, Ever After" song, while having a cleaner and more sophisticated sound. Its hype enough to dance around to, while the lyrics are still meaningful enough to be relatable. Keep up the good work :)

  24. Michael Howell

    their talent have grown another level

  25. koko kiyah

    I actually found them randomly. I really like this band music so far.🙂 hope they find success.😂

  26. BASHEDET two BASHEDET

    You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight

    You treated the damage that I let reside in my fragile mind

    I can't promise that I'll be fine
    I can't promise that I'll be fine

    My life's been unravelin'

    I can't promise that I'll be fine
    I can't promise that I'll be fine

    I still lose my way from time to time
    You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight

    You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight
    I still lose my way from time to time
    'Cause you saved my life more times than I'd like
    I promise I'll fight but I can't promise that I'll be fine

    [Chorus]
    You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight

    Keep me by your side
    I'm spinning out of control, more than I want you to know
    I survey the damage
    Haunting me again, will it ever end?
    The stitches and bandage
    They're a shorter cure until the pain returns

    [Chorus]
    You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight
    I still lose my way from time to time
    You can't keep me sane when I'm out of sight

    I promise I'll fight but I can't promise that I'll be fine

  37. ashton h

    Does anyone know what Ben's saying at 1:24? I can't seem to figure it out

    Peter Foster

    statrick pump ''from the shame ive been battling'' i think

    ashton h

    Peter Foster I might've got the time wrong, but I'm talking about a little bit before that when he says "my life's been" whatever the word is after that

  38. Ashlea Jade

    beyond proud

  39. Ashlea Jade

    beyond proud

  40. Kieran Thompson

    Well, this album is shaping up to be another go to album for bad days. Good. I need that.

  41. imnotsurechristopher

    YOU CANT KEEP ME SANE WHEN IM OUT OF SIGHT. I PROMISE ILL FIGHT BUT I CANT PROMISE THAT ILL BE FINE. ❤️❤️❤️

  42. heffrcn

    okay it literally just started and i think ive found my favourite song of 2017 ( although there is more from y'all but still) like wth how are you guys so good

  43. Robyn Levasseur

    Ughhh 😌

  44. zestymoonbeam

    So now I've gotten to hear all but two songs from 'okay.' and I think I love the album just as much as 'Never Happy Ever After' if not more. Literally every song is awesome. Even though they're so emo and I'm not an emo person. Today I wasted a good chunk of a class period copying down the lyrics to "Hey Rachel" in an effort to learn the words faster. XD

    Lolrus

    zestymoonbeam I once saw an article on them that defined them as a merge of pop punk music and emo lyrics (said something about taking inspiration from bands like All Time Low and My Chemical Romance IIRC). I pretty much just say they're pop punk because they're more pop punk than emo, imo.

    zestymoonbeam

    +Lolrus I definitely believe As It Is is a pop punk band. I didn't mean that their music was emo; I meant that their lyrics focus on sad issues like depression, death, and divorce on this album, so the feeling is emo. I wasn't trying to say that they were an emo band, just that they have emo lyrics. I agree with you.

    Jay Burris Wayne

    there are difference between dark and emo. I listen much to emo music, and As It Is' take on lyrically emo messages was nowhere near real emo music. they write songs about depression, death and stuff but that doesn't make their lyrics emo.

    there's no angst on it. but it's dark, and I love it.

    zestymoonbeam

    +Jay Burris Wayne Alright, I'm sorry for what I said. I take it back. As It Is' songs are _not emo_. I take your word that you know more about emo than I do, so I suppose I shouldn't form opinions on topics in which I am not an expert. Like I said, I don't listen to true emo music, so you're right - it's dark, not emo. Sorry for misusing the word. (For the record, however, +Benjamin Lambert is correct about As It Is' EPs on Bandcamp being tagged as emo.)

    Lolrus

    zestymoonbeam and tbf to you though, many music websites, magazines and articles have mentioned them at least having an emo vibe or taking emo inspiration (or at least appearing to)

    Jesús M. Villalta

    mikey mcCann I think that this singles are so good, but I don't think that is like to All Killer No Filler of Sum 41

    mikey mcCann

    +Jeriu I think the closest thing to a filler song on this album would have to be home is where the coast is. it's a figure of speech I'm not comparing it to the album

  83. gabriel green

    i want patty walters to break my legs

    gabriel green

    ITS J O K E

    Lori Pena

    It's called self deprecating humor. Really though, if you don't understand it, just scroll past. You don't NEED to understand every single thing. No shade, but maybe learn to move on?

    zestymoonbeam

    +Queen Tomato I'm sorry that I sounded rude and offensive about this; I just wanted someone to explain what +gabriel green meant because I was curious as to how everyone understood it but me. I'm not being obsessive either; I just get notifications when there are replies on comments and I wanted to clarify to +gabriel green that *I wasn't trying to put down what he said*. I really just wanted to know if anyone who liked his comment could explain what he meant. I apologize for the tone of my earlier replies. I didn't mean for them to sound that way; it's hard to express what you're trying to say when you see just the words on a screen. *I wasn't trying to attack you +gabriel green. Please don't further attack me about this. :)*

    gabriel green

    maybe its best if you just dont read youtube comments

    Lolrus

    That's not really self deprecating humour because he's not actually criticising himself in anyway sarcastically. He's just sarcastically asking for Patty to break his legs... Not sure how you would describe or categorise that joke 😂

    There no reason zestymoonbeam shouldn't be able to read and comment on YouTube comments with their own opinions and views. Admittedly, I can't see previous comments from zestymoonbeam so I can't fully base my opinions on their behaviour either. I don't know if they deleted them or if my phone's bugging out.

  84. Nabila Putri

    i love ben's voice sm

    KidInTheDark

    Annie Howlter the references 👌
