lyrics

well i thought that i was happy but i think i am quite sad
trying to focus on the good so i don't sink in the bad
but my boat can't stay afloat even with a drink in my hand
i thought that i was happy but i think i am quite sad

i thought that i was alright but maybe i am not
i used to stay out late with friends and drink till i forgot
that maybe i'm still trying to clear out all the rot
i thought that i was alright but maybe i am not

i really thought my smiles were something to rely on
ain't it better to smile with men than need their shoulders to cry on
but now i'm walking home alone trying to let bygones be bygones
i really thought my smiles were something to rely on

now you see i am still healing it's not been that long
i'm still licking my wounds until they are gone
because wounds turn into scars yes and scares turn in to songs
i am still healing it's not been that long

please don't turn away
please try and make me change my mind and stay
if i'm the treasure under the ground
become a detectorist and i'll be the best treasure you ever found

now my mumma always told me this too shall pass
the art of letting go of the present and the past
the art of taking a deep breath yes it can seem like quite a task
if you should forget that this too shall pass
yes this too shall pass
this sadness ain't gonna last
it'll go it will come back but i'm alright with that
