Lyrics:

Like a streetlight, like a streetlight

At the end of a lonely day, standing vacantly
In the middle of the lonely night, I try my best to smile brightly

I don’t want anyone to see how incredibly weak I am
To the people who relied on me that’s a contradiction,
Acting strong, acting like I’m not hurting, acting like nothing is wrong,
I just wanted to be someone else s strength,
I can’t be the reason that they lose strength.
I don’t have the courage to make “you can rely on me” the other way around.
The pain silently grows locked in a room in my heart without a way out.
When you hold it in as much as you can you grow numb to it.
I guess I can still take more, because I can still hold it back.
A bandaid over a wound will always fall
I put this on in a rush but it really fell off quickly.
The rain water pools on top of this worn roof,
and it knows me all too well slipping in through all the cracks.
I need someone before I collapse,
ask me again if I’m okay, please, anybody

Like a streetlight, like a streetlight
In the middle of the lonely night, I still just look bright
At the end of a lonely day, standing vacantly
In the middle of the lonely night, I try my best to smile brightly

Unable to rely on anything, I chose to only rely on myself
But now that I’m shaking, who can I even hold on to for support?
In front of the shoulders I’d rested my hands on (in comfort)
my shoulders are now drooping even further, but who cares?
I can t let it out, I can’t let it all out,
and the pain I couldn’t let out starts blaming myself.
When I keep breathing in this stale air
it goes beyond being uncomfortable and I’m left gasping for air.
I end up bothered by things that shouldn’t matter,
and they end up mattering even though they shouldn’t.
Even though people’s eyes aren’t on me their gazes sting,
Thinking they might keep watch and see the expression I’ve kept hidden slip out,
I’m afraid, yeah, I’m afraid

Like a streetlight, like a streetlight
At the end of a lonely day, standing vacantly
In the middle of the lonely night, I try my best to smile brightly

Like a streetlight, like a streetlight
In the middle of the lonely night, I still just look bright
At the end of a lonely day, standing vacantly
In the middle of the lonely night, I try my best to smile brightly

Like a streetlight, like a streetlight
In the middle of the lonely night, I still just look bright
At the end of a lonely day, standing vacantly
In the middle of the lonely night, I try my best to smile brightly
