Won't Stop Believing by Michael Vickers, 2017.

lyrics

Waiting for the night to turn cold
Sitting by the side of the road
Just wondering if I’m deluded
Or if what I’ve always wanted will come true
Like it did for you
The answer seems to be nowhere
You pour your heart out but no one cares
Why must they talk so loud?
It’s not fair

I won’t stop believing I’ll keep dreaming like I always have
I’ve never been the sort of lad
Who’s worn a mask, ‘cos he’s boring as
Maybe I’m competing with a demon I must slaughter fast
Or maybe it’s too appealing to wish for more than what you thought you’d have
By now

Patronised by small time sharks I don’t know
Who claim that they’ve got contacts, they don’t
And the worst of all’s the fact that all that matters are my rags and not the notes.
They must hate my clothes.
I can’t blame them, so do I
‘Cos they’re not something I want to be defined by
There’s so much more to life like what’s inside.

I won’t stop believing I’ll keep dreaming like I always have
I’ve never been the sort of lad
Who’s worn a mask, ‘cos he’s boring as
Maybe I’m competing with a demon I must slaughter fast
Or maybe it’s too appealing to wish for more than what you thought you’d have
By now

I’m too attached to take it back
And I always have been
But I can feel it I can breathe it can’t you feel it
In the next 5 seconds yeah, I’m gonna wash my mouth out
And though I despise it, if it took eternity just be reminded

I won’t stop believing I’ll keep dreaming like I always have
I’ve never been the sort of lad
Who’s worn a mask, ‘cos he’s boring as
Maybe I’m competing with a demon I must slaughter fast
Or maybe it’s too appealing to wish for more than what you thought you’d have
By now
Now
