Stoop Kid's Afraid to Leave His Stoop

I guess I should have learned my lesson
Dishonest apologies are just confessions
You’re just not who you pretend to be
Your life was never meant for me to lead
Wasting away was never what I wanted
I think it’s time I finished what I started

If you don’t say it like you mean it
Then I’ll believe it when I see it
I just can’t shake this feeling
You give me nothing to believe in

Cracked sidewalks and parking lots
The worst part’s this town’s all I’ve got
Don’t you dare tell me to be complacent
After all, it’s only dreams we’re chasing
The last thing I want’s to waste away here
Change must be what I’ve always feared

If you don’t say it like you mean it
Then I’ll believe it when I see it
I just can’t shake this feeling
You give me nothing to believe in


I’m not afraid of you
I’m not the boy you knew
I’m not afraid of you
I only want the truth

If you don’t say it like you mean it
Then I’ll believe it when I see it
I just can’t shake this feeling
You give me nothing to believe in

If you don’t say it like you mean it
Then I’ll believe it when I see it
I just can’t shake this feeling
You give me nothing to believe in
