I won’t be living in my head, I won’t be living in my head
There are places I haven’t gone, and there are books I haven’t read
I won’t be living in my head
I’ll come and lay down beside you
I’ll lay beside you in this bed

You’ll tell me tales of who we are, I’ll tell you tales of who we were
The past is just a story I am telling and rehearse

I won’t live in a year that has come and gone
Lifted me up and broke me down and made me feel as though I wasn’t strong
I will not lose myself in fear
I will not lose myself in thoughts that travel back in time
They always seem to carry higher costs

I remember years ago I would wear my mother’s clothes
Dance around in fur, pretend I was the heiress of her pearls
I remember years ago when you told me I was beautiful
I held my breath, you held my hand, but then you let it go

I remember years ago when we said we’d never change
Never cry, never die
That we could not be replaced
I remember years ago when our love it turned to loss
Yeah I remember that, but it comes at a cost

So won’t live inside my head, no I won’t live inside my head
These monsters grow, but they don’t know where I go if I look ahead
These fables old they only show what’s before, years now dead
They won’t keep me inside; I will not look; I do not dare to tread

No I won’t live inside my head
No I won’t live inside my head
There are folks I haven’t known
And there are words I have not said

No I won’t live inside my head
