about

Have you ever felt like everyone around you can see right through you, and they’re just waiting for you to crash and burn? This song is about trying to fight that feeling. In a way, this song is about a lack of self-love and pretending to be ok even though you’re clearly not.

lyrics

Hiding Behind Glass

Try hiding behind glass
with one foot on the ground
and the other circling in mid air
everyone’s looking, they’re shaking their heads
like they do when they read yesterday’s news
and watch the whole world burning down

Try hiding behind glass
wearing nothing but your blues
and your muddy eyes
The earth around you is shaking like a madman
who can’t get a break, and all you’re holding onto
are your own mistakes

Higher, take me higher
I might’ve drifted away but now I’m back on the shore,
counting all the hours I’ve got till nighttime
Higher, take me higher
I must’ve jumped out the window
but now I’m coming back in through the front door

Tried hiding behind glass
but everyone just saw right through me
so I left me there
Look, now I am happy, I put on my big smile
and keep everything boxed up for someone else to open
another time


Higher, take me higher
I might’ve drifted away but now I’m back on the shore,
counting all the hours I’ve got till nighttime
Higher, take me higher
I might’ve jumped out the window
but now I’m coming back in through the front door
