Illenium - That's Why Lyrics




Flame still burns
Kerosene
Rise and fall
As I breathe

All these pictures on the screen
It's almost like they're real
And I think that I'd do anything
If it meant I didn't feel
What I feel
And I feel way too much
Truth is no one gives a fuck

That's why
I don't try
That's why
I stay high
I know that you're never gonna hear me
I know that these words'll go to waste
That's why
I don't try

Tried my best
Doors still closed
Love is deaf
For all I know

Sometimes it gets so hard
And I don't wanna fight
And everyday that passes by
Feels like it might
Be my last
And I feel way too much
Truth is no one gives a fuck

That's why
I don't try
That's why
I stay high
I know that you're never gonna hear me
I know that these words'll go to waste
That's why
I don't try

That's why
I don't try
That's why
I stay high

That's why
I don't try
That's why
I stay high
I know that you're never gonna hear me
I know that these words'll go to waste
That's why
I don't try

That's why
I don't try
That's why
I stay high

    'That's why' I can't choose a particular song from this album to be my favourite

  40. A S

    Can we get the instrumental?

  41. Bella Dolce

    Goosebumps. All over!! Body, mind, heart and soul. Chills!! 💓

  42. Medvichi

    This song oddly reminds me of the year 2002, playing the original Halo: Combat Evolved on Xbox at my friends house while listening to Linkin Park. We'd play the same level (and music) over and over until we had everything memorized, this was before online console gaming was a thing. It's crazy how much has changed in gaming and music since then.

  43. stoNer aka mustafha

    Every thing will be ok

  44. Chris Benny

    This song is AWESOME

  45. Justin Gathright
