Words Fail (説不出話) - Ben Platt

I never meant to make it such a mess


I never thought that it would go this far


So I just stand here sorry

Searching for something to say


Something to say


Words fail words fail


There's nothing I can say


I guess I thought I could be part of this


I never had this kind of thing before


I never had that perfect girl

Who somehow could see the good part of me


I never had the dad who stuck it out


No corny jokes or baseball gloves


No mom who just was there

'Cause mom was all that she had to be


That's not a worthy explanation

I know there is none


Nothing can make sense of all these things I've done


Words fail words fail

There's nothing I can say

Except sometimes you see everything you wanted

And sometimes you see everything you wish you had

And it's right there right there right there

In front of you


And you want to believe it's true


So you make it true


And you think maybe everybody wants it


And needs it a little bit too


This was just a sad invention


It wasn't real I know


But we were happy


I guess I couldn't let that go


I guess I couldn't give that up


I guess I wanted to believe


'Cause if I just believe


Then I don't have to see what's really there


No I'd rather pretend I'm something better than

These broken parts


Pretend I'm something other than

This mess that I am

'Cause then I don't have to look at it

And no one gets to look at it

No no one can really see

'Cause I've learned to slam on the brake


Before I even to turn the key

Before I make the mistake

Before I lead with the worst of me

I never let them see the worst of me


'Cause what if everyone saw


What if everyone knew


Would they like what they saw


Or would they hate it too


Will I just keep on running away from what's true


All I ever do is run


So how do I step in


Step into the sun


Step into the sun
