Real Friends - Spread Me All Over Illinois Lyrics




Change holds me down to the places I don't want to be
When I wake up I look in the mirror and I see
The person that's been scaring me away from moving on
And getting out of my head
I end my nights in the same spot that I told myself I would leave

I want to come home and have it be like it was before I left
I'm starting to see that I keep living alone in the past
Since loneliness will never leave my mind

I can't shake it off
Always a fight between my past,
My head, and my heart, you can cut me up
And spread me all over Illinois

I can't, I can't find myself
Since loneliness will never leave my mind
I'm stuck and I feel like I'm the only one
I end my nights in the same spot that I told myself I would leave

I want to come home and have it be like it was before I left
I'm starting to see that I keep living alone in the past
Since loneliness will never leave my mind

Did I get left behind?
Or is everybody else just hiding that they're lost

Loneliness will never leave my mind
Loneliness will never leave my mind

Did I get left behind?
Or is everybody else just hiding that they're lost

  19. Julian Rincon

    Change holds me down to the places that I don't want to be
    When I wake up I look in the mirror and I see
    The person that's been scaring me away from moving on
    And getting out of my head
    I had my nights in the same spot
    That I told myself I would leave

    I want to come home and have it be like it was before I left
    I'm starting to see that I keep living alone in the past
    Since loneliness will never leave my mind

    I can't shake it off
    Always a fight between my best, my head and my heart
    You can cut me up and spread me all over Illinois

    I can't, I can't find myself
    This loneliness will never leave my mind
    I'm stuck and I feel like I'm the only one
    I had my nights in the same spot that I told myself I would leave

    I want to come home and have it be like it was before I left
    I'm starting to see that I keep living alone in the past
    Since lonely mess will never leave my mind

    Did I get left behind?
    Or is everybody else just hiding that they're lost

    This loneliness will never leave my mind
    Loneliness will never leave my mind

    Did I get left behind?
    Or is everybody else just hiding under that they're lost
