Story So Far, The - How You Are Lyrics

Gone now I keep my distance
But still show persistence in trying to find out how you are
It’s really testing my patience, watching you waste this
Life that you have of yours in a bar
And I get the feeling that you’re gonna leave him
Cause you just can’t seem to get off
You’re so appealing, you can get anyone that you want somehow

Patience is useless when I’m sober and you’re wasted
And you don’t wanna hear it, so go on just leave it

Calm down, can’t we get level?
Can’t we be civil? We share a lot of things
And yeah, I think back when it was simple
Before I had earned some, and all I ever did was sing
Been caught under pressure, trying to measure
How I feel ‘bout this whole thing
You’re so appealing, you can get anyone that you want somehow

Patience is useless when I’m sober and you’re wasted
And you don’t wanna hear it so go on just leave it
And I count the times that I’m driving home
I’m talking to myself like I’m not alone
Trying to figure to out who I’ve been running from
Gotta figure out who I’ve been running from

I keep my distance now
Forcing my jaw to smile

Patience is useless when I’m sober and you’re wasted
And you don’t wanna hear it so go on just leave it
And I count the times that I’m driving home
I’m talking to myself like I’m not alone
Trying to figure to out who I’ve been running from
Gotta figure out who I’ve been running from

    i'm analyzing, discussing, and creating a presentation on TSSF and this song for my written and oral final exam for the wind ensemble in my school. i can't explain how much this album means to me, so it's gonna be rough trying to articulate things beyond the mechanics and music of this piece...


    I hope you did well buddy! Have a great summer?

    Victor Hugo

    Running away from somebody because they're not the right fit for you, mainly due to how they are.

    Jada Koehler

    a girl that broke a guys heart (aka parker). he keeps away from her, but shes always on his mind and he still cares about her, as well as her wellbeing.Parker doesnt like that his former lover is out there partying and not doing something with herself. He tries to tell her but shes too wasted to agree with him.

  36. Super Super

    Forcing my jaw to smile"

    Best part of the song!!! <3

    Bria ss

    Totally Spaced Out Right Now :)

  43. rockintheguitar

    I sense a lot of taking back Sunday influence in this song

  44. kiwi

    I hate to jump the bandwagon of comments but I can relate to.this track a bit. Had a bf of three years, it was an LDR. He kept me on the edge of claiming he'd get a place for us both so I can move in. Needless to say through those three years all he spent his money on was drugs and alcohol. The only time I would hear from him was if he was either bored and had no one to talk to or high and drunk. Needless to say I was willing to try and work it out but he decided to call it quits. His loss. XD

  45. Justus Jermaine

    best song one the album

  46. cherubalxii

    First song I've heard from them.. I'm ashamed that I didn't know about them earlier. I think I'm in love.

  47. Dani Fachrudien

    fuck Cornetto Adv! i want listening this song

  50. Amortentia Lain

    voice ♥

  51. Robs Gaming

    The Energy in his voice just gets me goin

  52. Shannon Boehm

    Best song from them yet, in my opinion. They killed it with this album.

  53. Joshua Dooley

    I love how the drummer is initiating rim hits into this album! adds so much character compared to what pop punk drummers usually do....

  54. Taylor Hewitt

    Does anyone else hear a chirping noise from the guitar during the chorus? I've only heard it on this track. Must be the way it was recorded?

  55. Kayla xoxo

    I saw these guys last night, and I got stuck in the mosh pit (I'm only 5ft, and I'm a female) and I got punched in the face, and almost had an anxiety attack.

    Michael McDonough

    @Cursed Kisses Very cool.

  56. Marty S

    If this shit inspires you also, and you live in Denver hit me up and let's create musical fusion. I play the drums. Serious inquires only.

  57. Matt330

    This song going into Phantom is the best part of the album!

    Every song sounds the fucking same. This band sucks. Parker is a dick.

  76. Kodar

  78. Nick Crompton

    Seeing them next Wednesday!!! Can't wait!😃

  79. Devin Ruiz

    Chillest track to me on this album, love the bit at 1:45. Such a talented band

  81. vaize

    Favorite song on the album.

  82. satch402

    This song is an absolute jam! I did an acoustic cover of it on my page if anyone is interested in checking it out!

    Dillon Perera

    @satch402 Dude...that was amazing. I loved it!


    @Dillon Perera Thanks for the kind words!

  83. desistx1

    This whole album makes me think of Summer. I want to get in my car and just drive with this blaring

  84. ATylenol

    That intro with the groove between the drums and the bass was sick!

  85. StayGoldKH

    i hate how this song has an ending.

  86. Savannah Hatley

    "I keep my distance now
    Forcing my jaw to smile"
    this whole song is literally so relatable

  87. Pat Tynan

    Can't wait to see them in NYC. I'm going to jump on someone.

  88. nonexistent

    I keep coming back to this one after playing the whole album

  89. sonicspeed07449

    Easily my favorite song TSSF has ever done. Chords anyone?

  90. Brandy Johnson

    Clicked like before I even played it.... I just know

  91. Totodilite

    This album has absolutely blown me away. It has completely shattered my expectations. TSSF are by far the best band out right now.

  92. Erik Feeley

    Being 100% honest, everyone in the band did an amazing job, but I swear Torf on the drums stole the show. On a whole other level on this album.


    @Erik Feeley Really? Outside of the cool little rimshot parts on a few of the songs, I feel like What You Don't See blew this away from a drumming perspective.

    Erik Feeley

    @satch402 guess i just have a different ear. WYDS was solid. I just enjoy the different things he explored with on this album.


    @Erik Feeley Christ the drum intro to Smile is insaneeee

    Erik Feeley

    @TheFinalJedster613 amen to that. That was the perfect intro to this album

    Ajay S

    For rreealll.

    He's a monster.

    definitely my favorite track. well done!

  94. sam hallett

    Love the bridge of this. Them melancholy vibes.
