Everyone Leaves

Written by Comfort Cat

i hate holidays
like i hate all the days
you rush through rain and snow and sleet
but no roads lead you to me
the days are ever short
and getting shorter
i’m wasting so much time
it’s been so long since you were mine

I hate everyone
i’ve ever had to lose
made me feel like family was something i could choose
but in the end
they’re all fair-weather friends
effervescent, fleeting,
so sweet your mouth starts bleeding

everybody always says they started life out rough
but when they find a love and friends,
they start to climb
(go up and up)
and i would never change that,
and i don’t blame them when they don’t look back

everyone leaves
til everybody’s gone
everyone leaves
til they’ve left me all alone
no one ever stays.
they’ve got places left to see
and somewhere they call home
that’s far away from me

It feels like a crime,
my instinct to survive
because I live beyond my means
i hate when asking for what you need
feels like wasting everyone’s time
cuz you don’t grow their bottom line

i hate everyone
who says they’re #blessed
since when did gratitude become another beauty contest?
but I can’t really say it makes me envious
their glories are so far from mine,
and getting farther still

everybody always says they started life out rough
but when they find a place to die,
their spirits rise
(go up and up)
and i would never change that
and i don’t blame them when they don’t look back

everyone leaves
til everybody’s gone
everyone leaves
til they’ve left me all alone
no one ever stays.
they’ve got places left to see
and somewhere they call home
that’s far away from me
