As wasted as it is

from OK by Hey Karen



my head has come undone
i am not a special one
in fact i never mattered more
than all of those that came before
i thought i could control
your life but now i feel so small
the path you took, the lonely road
it’s best for you to get this solved

and all the people, they knew from the start
how wicked and how ugly could be my unraveled heart
they said that I don’t fit and I cannot argue with this
it’s best for me to leave it as it is

you said you couldn’t deal
with all the monsters that you feel
eroding my insides
the ones that always made you cry
you said you have to leave
you left me with no air to breathe
how can i restore your faith
if it’s just too little too late

and all your friends, they frowned upon me
they said all this nasty stuff about me
turns out they’re right and what do I make of this
it’s best to let it all stay the way it is

now I’m alone
I’m not here
tears in my eyes
but my mind is clear
you have escaped
without a kiss
it’s best to leave my broken heart
as wasted as it is

Hey Karen Rotterdam, Netherlands

Hey Karen is an alias for Bartek Urban, who creates electronica, synthpop, and industrial - the stuff that both melts your heart and your brain.
Home recordings and lo-fi aesthetic aren't necessarily a bad thing, since he believes the feeling is more important. A full scope of that feeling can be seen in his audiovisual live shows, which he regularly performs since 2011.
