This is a song I started working on a while ago. I tried to go for a “Mad World” type feel, with soft/intimate vocals and some emotive string sections.

I hope you guys enjoy it. It’s probably one of the most depressing songs I’ve written, but I really love it.

As always, feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

Lyrics:
[Chorus: It’s a funny place, this world of ours
And I’d probably laugh
If it didn’t feel like my heart’s been
Stomped in half]

It’s funny how
I always thought I was better than this crap
It’s funny how
It ends up being me who falls so hard he gets stuck in this trap
It’s funny how
I was never the romantic one, or the frantic one
It’s funny how
How pathetic I’ve become in these six measly weeks
It’s funny how
Before all this I could hardly remember the last time I cried

It’s a funny place, this world of ours
And I’d probably laugh
If it didn’t feel like my heart’s been
Stomped in half

It’s funny how
It can hurt so much to lose something that was never mine
It’s funny how
Being empty can feel so much heavier than being full
It’s funny how
If you want something too much, it’s just out of reach
It’s funny how
Fate decides to put 681 miles between you and I
It’s funny how
I lost it all because I cared too much

[Chorus]

If I had known what you wanted
Do you realize I would have given it all to you?
The way I started this
I took your words
And wrapped them in a silver platter
And it’s funny how
I still smile when I think of the way
you looked at me then
But ain’t it funny how
I misread everything else

I was scrambling, I was lost
I couldn’t read past your eyes
I didn’t know what to make of
You saying yes, but acting no
And ain’t it funny how
In trying to do everything right
I did everything wrong

[Chorus]

It’s funny how
I’m still sitting here
Writing songs I never want to reach your ears

It’s a funny place, this world of ours
Funny enough it almost makes you want to cry

And the crowd’s going wild with laughter
And the crowd’s going wild with laughter
And the crowd’s going wild with laughter

At this world of ours
