Since You've Been Around lyrics

I'm wandering
I'm crawling
I'm two steps away from falling
Just can't seem to get around

I'm heavy
I'm weary
Not thinking clearly
I just can't seem to find solid ground
Since you've been around

I'm running
I'm hiding
But you'll never find me
'cause i've always felt lost in a crowd

I'm sinking
I'm drowning
I'm so afraid of losing
My head's been spinning round and round
Since you've been around

I'm foolish and crazy
I just think that maybe I gotta things to figure out
I'm winning
I'm losing
I'm afraid of never choosing this heart of mine, so
Beaten down
Before you came around
