I listen to the sky
As the sunset welcomes the dusk
I keep thinking there’s a lesson here
From how I crave your touch
It pains me, I’m so afraid of you now
You’ve gained so much control of me
I’m trapped and I just keep on breaking

CHORUS
I’m falling, watch me as i
Break to pieces
I gain strength but you won’t
Let me keep it
Please, would you just please tell me why
Feels like we’re racing but you got me
Got me by a landslide

And all this pain I feel
Like you covered my wounds with salt
The way you captured my attention
The way you made me fall
It’s scared me, I’m so aware of this world
Almost like I’m watching it spin
You’re killing me slowly within

CHORUS
I’m falling, watch me as i
Break to pieces
I gain strength but you won’t
Let me keep it
Please, would you just please tell me why
Feels like we’re racing but you got me
Got me by a landslide

The motions are so blurred
My sentences are slurred
I’m not thinking clear
And it’s all your fault
It’s all your fault I’m crumbling…here
Here…

CHORUS
Where I’m falling, watch me as i
Break to pieces
I gain strength please oh please
Let me keep it
And then won’t you just tell me why
Feels like we’re racing but you got me
Got me by a landslide
Oh baby you’ve got me by a landslide
I’m losing by a land…slide

i spent a third of my 2011, my entire "senior summer" and missed out on college because i was in treatment for an eating disorder and other unhealthy addictions. i wrote this song to my eating disorder during one of my tougher days, and i hope you like it =)

Sing like no one is listening,

And live like it's heaven on Earth

I love the ending of the chorus, "but you got me, you got me by a landslide." It's a really strong ending and it makes you think about the whole slide. I hope you're doing better now, I wish the best for you. You've got talent
