Jon Gary - This Is How It Is

from Circus of the Mind by Crabapples

I tried to send you something
You were not prepared
To receive the message
I left there

Not looking for chances
To play a part in your romance
Maybe I can’t take a fall
Without feeling anything at all

This is how it is with my friends
And I’m gonna lose some in the end

You can shut me out if you like
If something’s wrong i gotta make it right
I have to make my world my own
Even if I do it all alone

Maybe I try to hard
You know I’ve got a bleeding heart.
Maybe the best defense
is a little more distance

This is how it is with my friends
And I’m gonna lose some in the end
