Tori Kelly - Dead Lyrics




You try to give me beautiful bouquet
Is that what you see?
'Cause what I'm looking at is nothing but decay
Guess you don't know me

Ooh I won't let you turn me into dust
I can hear the whispers
Which ones do I trust?
Won't you look around?
Their skeletons are waiting to be found

I know they try to pull me under, whoa oh
they try to get inside my head
I wanna live my life, feel alive
But how can I if everything is dead?
Oh dead, dead

You fill me with lies
Whisper fake paradise
Is that what you believe? Ooh whoa oh
Drowning with fear
Those strings are killing you, my dear
I'd rather be free

Oh oh oh, I won't let you turn me into dust
I can hear the whispers
Which ones do I trust?
Won't you look around?
Their skeletons are waiting to be found

I know they try to pull me under, whoa oh
they try to get inside my head
I wanna live my life, feel alive
But how can I if everything is dead
Oh dead, dead

Close to the edge
I'm sick of running away the dark
Turn on the lights
And I'll expose you for what you are

I know they try to pull me under
They try to get inside my head
I wanna live my life, feel alive
But how can I if everything is dead

I wanna live my life, feel alive
But how can I if everything is dead
Oh dead, dead
