about

Assume the Worst, the single from Grace and the Carnivore's new EP, out very soon on Green Line Records!

lyrics

And I know I'll never risk it
'Cause I just don't have enough
of whatever keeps you going
so I guess I'm giving up

I tried to believe,
yeah, I wanted to have faith
'Cause I don't know who to turn to
and I don't know what to say

But I'd rather be safe than sorry
Rather be cold than burned
Rather be alone than broken hearted
'Cause I'll always assume the worst

You say that I'm not living
Well at least I won't be dead
This passion that you speak of, man
It's only in your head

I don't need any misery
I stray away from shame
'Cause I've heard of what can come from love
and I don't want all that pain

'Cause I'd rather be safe than sorry
Rather be cold than burned
Rather be alone than broken hearted
'Cause I'll always assume the worst
Oh it's the worst

When you feel like fighting,
but you don't know what you're fighting for
You can't stop crying,
'Cause you don't feel it anymore
Turn your head, you don't have to watch these tears
I'll be fine, just let me cry

'Cause I'd rather be safe than sorry
I'd rather be cold than burned
I'd rather be alone than broken hearted
'cause I'll always assume the worst
