Cavetown - Irrational Lyrics

I put a box in my closet full of things that I've loved
Sometimes I can't bear to look at it cause I won't deserve
What I find, I tell myself this every single time
Cause I'm not strong enough, not strong enough for this

I'll sing until my skin starts to feel something
I'll breathe again and again until the beat starts to mean something

It's not a lot of fun to think about
Everyone you're letting down
A sickness so incredible

You know it's all irrational
You know it's so irrational

  2. Asher :p

    the repetition in this song makes it feel so real it hurts. you just keep repeating the same thing over and over but no matter how loud you shout, your heart won’t hear you.

  36. Morgan B

    i put a box in my closet full of things that I've loved,
    sometimes i can't bear to look at it 'cause i wont deserve what i find
    i tell myself this every single time
    cause i'm not strong enough, not strong enough for this
    ill sing until my skin starts to feel something
    ill breathe again and again
    until the beat starts to mean something.
    Its not a lot of fun to think about everyone you're letting down
    a sickness so incredible
    you know it's so irrational [x10]
    you know you're so irrational
    you know its so irrational [x5]
