Lyrics

Can you feel it?

Nothing that I do is right
I think I've had an oversight
You don't know what you're doing to me
Why do you always put me down
It's better when you're not around
We always seem to disagree
You're killing our love
You're screwing me up
I can't take no more
And I've had enough
Again it isn't right
I'm choking inside
I love you in death and the afterlife

But I don't know what it is that keeps me going
You get enough of this, it keeps us flowing
I'm pushing ahead, and you can't stop me now

Took some time to realize
I saw it right before my eyes
That we don't get along anymore
I tried my best to make it work
You always keep me in the dark
And now i'm feeling oh so unsure
But you know I love you
You're stringing me out
I can't anymore and I've had enough
And it isn't right
I'm choking inside
I'll love you to death in the afterlife

But I don't know what it is that keeps me going
You get enough of this, it keeps us flowing
I'm pushing ahead, and you can't stop me now
And I don't know what it is that makes it matter
So tell me what to give to make it better
I'm pushing ahead, and you can't stop me now

Pushing and a-shoving
Pushing and a-shoving
Pushing and a-shoving
Pushing and a-shoving

But I don't know what it is that keeps me going
You get enough of this, it keeps us flowing
I'm pushing ahead, and you can't stop me now

Don't know what it is
Don't know what it is
Don't know what it is
