about

Sometimes you just aren't good at something no matter how hard you try. Inspired from reading sports manga like Yowamushi Pedal and thinking about the people who lose.

lyrics

My legs are failing fast and I know
I can’t come back here

Trying to kick the ball but I go down
Down down down

I don’t what I’m gonna be when I get old

But I wont be running fast
as these slow legs now


I’m gonna be faster than
you’ve ever seen me before

There’s no one that’s got
Big dreams like mine

And Johnny asks, "Where am I gonna be when I get old?"

And I don’t know but the field’s all I've got now


And I’ve never seen a goal
in 13 years

But May 16th was so hot
and no one showed up

I ran faster than
you’ve ever seen me before

But if I look inside I know I’d
rather stay home

I’d rather just stay home

Slowly
the gaps begin to show
and I can’t catch up

I’m sitting
on the sideline
Waiting to go home

I worked hard
but they wont put me in
and I can’t score
I’ll never score

I see him smiling
with a winning goal
I guess I’ll go home

Surely not every foot placed in a field
is meant to be great

I’m not slow I’m not fast
not too weak or strong
but I cannot compete

Surely it’s healthy
too take a step back
but I still want to try

There must be some meaning
for losers like me and

I...
don’t wanna...
die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And Johnny says, "Don’t worry,
you’ve still got me."

"Not everyone’s gotta be the best
to find some meaning"

And I’m sitting in my bedroom
studying flash cards

I won’t turn the lights on ’til the sun’s fully

DOWN

DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN
