lyrics

I got these triggers down inside of me
Trying to disarm trying to get free
Until I’m good to go, until I’m in the clear
I need you by my side, patient with my fear

When I get bottled up
I get all shut down
Cause if the levee breaks
I might come unwound
I got a mind on fire
And a soul that goes black
I might say some things
That I can’t take back
And the truth is I love you so much
That is why I keep it bottled up, I get bottled up
Trying to keep you safe to not put you through my hell
My mind can’t find the words, the stories I can’t tell

I get bottled up
I just shut down
Cause if the levee breaks
I might come unwound
Got a mind on fire
A soul that goes black
I might say some things
I just can’t take back
When the truth is I love you so much
That is why sometimes I get bottled up, bottled up
I keep it bottled up, for you, bottled up
With you by my side I will survive
You make me a better man, try to understand

When I get bottled up
And I’m all shut down
If the levee breaks
Well I just might come unwound
I got a mind on fire
And a soul that goes black
I don’t want to say things
That I can’t take back
When the truth is I love you so much
Even when I’m bottled up…

I get bottled up
Keep it all bottled up for you
Bottled up
