Nothing Gets Crossed Out – Bright Eyes Lyrics

Lyrics of Nothing Gets Crossed Out – Bright Eyes

Well the future’s got me worried such awful thoughts
My head’s a carousel of pictures, the spinning never stops
I just want someone to walk in front
And I’ll follow the leader
Like when I fell under the weight of a schoolboy crush
Started carrying her books and doing lots of drugs
I almost forgot who I was
But came to my senses

Now I’m trying to be assertive, I’m making plans
Want to rise to the occasion, yeah meet all their demands
But all I do is just lay in bed
And hide under the covers

Yeah I know I should be brave
But I’m just too afraid of all this change

And it’s too hard to focus through all this doubt
I keep making this to-do list but nothing gets crossed out
Working on the record seems pointless now
When the world ends who’s gonna hear it?

But I’m trying to take some comfort in written words
Yeah Tim, I heard your album and it’s better than good
When you get off tour I think we should
Hang and black out together

Cause I’ve been feeling sentimental for days gone by
All those summers singing, drinking, laughin’, wasting our time
Remember all those songs and the way we smiled
In those basements made of music?

But now I’ve got to crawl to get anywhere at all
I’m not as strong as I thought

So when I’m lost in a crowd, I hope that you’ll pick me out
I long to be found, the grass grew high, I laid down
Now I’ll wait for a hand to lift me up, help me stand
I’ve been laying so long, don’t wanna lay here no more
Don’t wanna lay here no more, don’t wanna lay here no more

Everything that happens is supposed to be
And it’s all pre-determined, can’t change your destiny
Guess I’ll just keep moving, someday maybe
I’ll get to where I’m going
