“I Love You But I’m Lost” by Sharon Van Etten

I’m better than I know. There’s room to grow.

You read the answers by the shadows on the wall
We could be great
Drive myself crazy with mistakes
You know I’m better every day

Tell me there’s something I can change 
Recall I know what a sanctuary is
Help me deserve you, seeing me praise
You love me but you’ll change

Disappointed in a lover 
Because there’s the only way
To know somebody in and out after a while 
It’s all a challenge

Come in here and be yourself again
I love you but I’m not somebody who take shots
See me after I recoil 
I’m better than I know 
There’s room to grow

Tear stains on the last page
Better leave ’em
Time will tell and I’ll be back
Tear stains I believe that I’m in Houston 
I can read my lines
Most of all I find it strange 
I believe them

Turn me into something great
You know that that’s the only way
Promises that we forgot
I suppose that we will always 

Let’s turn it into something we can change 
I love you but I’m lost 
Between the pain and cost
I hold myself alive 
I love you but I’m lost 
I love you but I’m lost 
I love you but I’m lost 
I love you but I’m lost 

I love you but I’m lost 
I love that there’s no cross


I'm routinely overestimated.
