Rex Orange County - Never Had The Balls Lyrics

I was lost, felt nothing at all
But I'm coming back now
Yeah, I'm in the background
No need to react now that everything's done

(But let me say)
I thought it would be simple enough
And I had to grow up
Just to learn all the ways that it's not

But I never thought that I'd wanna call it quits
In my whole life
I never aimed to feel confused
I blame myself to tell the truth

But now I know that
Everything's hard when you're living in the dark
And you don't even wanna see it through
If that had to be the way I'd be feeling for days
And I knew it back then, I probably wouldn't do it

But I never got the chance to tell you
I never had the balls to tell you
No, I never had the balls to tell you

I did everything that I could
But still I was helpless
I shouldn't waste my precious time
On anybody living off of mine

And now I know that
Things are getting better
I can live like this forever
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

When I found my own way out
Was to open my mouth
And be honest
I had to go and do it, yeah

This could be the best decision
That you ever make
Please don't be afraid
She reassures me

I know it's hard to play pretend
I promise you it's due to end
And winners never quit, you know
So quitters never win
(It's only getting better now for you)

I'm your man if you're looking for good times
Feel amazing and I'm on my way home, yeah
I'm finally in the zone
I heard the word 'Goodbye'
And felt surprised that I wasn't even sad
In the slightest
My mind was made up, but
If I had to live a life only being polite
I'd be giving in
I'm never gonna do it

I'll never get the chance to tell you
I never had the balls to tell you
No, I never had the balls to tell you, now

(Balls to tell you)
(Balls to tell you)
(I never got the chance to tell you)
(I never had the balls to tell you)
(Balls to tell you)
(But I never got the chance to tell you)
(I never had the balls to tell you)
I didn't
(Balls to tell you)

  63. ryan brownrigg

    i want 1:42 - 1:47 on a loop for 10 hours thank you

  64. Ipeedinyourshoe

    this sounds like something a character in a coming of age musical would sing after he has his character arc finished, and then goes back to fix his mistakes

  66. Andres Cardenas

    I'm gonna like support him to the very end :)

  67. Brandon Sanchez

    1:41 Never gets old.

  68. Lucky Xiong

    I love this song and Pony! After the pretty fucking sad, raw, and a lil too real experience of Apricot Princess, this is a beautiful change. I feel like Rex is a lot happier in this album and in his songs. It still has his raw emotion and a few sad parts where he puts out his insecurities, doubts, and sadness, but there's more happier and upbeat songs. It truly feels like this a new chapter of Rex's career and his music. This is a super happy song I can play to start my day off happy and dancing! Love you Rex!

  69. Kevin TTO

    This song makes me think of the girl I’m in love with who will never love me back but I wouldn’t know unless I asked but I can’t ask.

    Surely You Jestin

    Kevin TTO the best you could do is try and if she doesn’t like you back then oh well at least you seized an opportunity if it fails but there’s also a chance it could succeed

  70. alex mysz

    i love thea's part :)

  71. Jainar Arcilla

    1:42 warms my soul. Thank you Rex!!!
