Better Than You Lyrics

Petal
You stay out so late
Just to build connection
They say, "Hey, man you were great."
But they don't even have the slightest affection
That you're really not doing okay
Maybe tonight you could barely even play

The show it must go on and if they don't even come
The colors and the callous turn you into a strange and silent one

And maybe if you were harsh?
Maybe if you weren't you
People would seem to care about
What it is you even do?
Maybe if you tried harder
To seem like you didn't love it but you do
But they're better than you

Don't give into the fodder and
Don't pander a smile
Give yourself a second and
Give yourself a while
But believe all that you hear
And a**ume that they're all watching
And force some words out of your mouth
While all their eyes are watching

And maybe if you were harsh?
Maybe if you weren't you
People would seem to care about
What it is you even do?
Maybe if you tried harder
To seem like you didn't love it but you do
But they're better than you
