Everything I Did to Get to You (from Songland) by Ben Platt

I’ll admit the fact that I
settled for somebody
just to fight the lonely.
Put myself out on the line
and tried to change the old me,
changin’ almost broke me.

Been the life of the party.
Done the worst I can do.
Chasin’ love
that was pointless
’til it pointed me to get to you.

All the hearts I ever held
just held me back.
I’ve been bruised and burned
but somehow I’m intact.
All the times I thought
I might have reached the end.
I’d do it all again.
Everything I did to get to you (everything, everything).
Everything I did to get to you (everything, everything).

On the road to where we are
I think I might’ve lost me
somewhere in the city,
but you saw me from the start.
You see the world that I see
and you don’t try to fix me

Been the life of the party.
Done the worst I can do.
Chasin’ love
that was pointless
’til it pointed me to you.

All the hearts I ever held
just held me back.
I’ve been bruised and burned
but somehow I’m intact.
All the times I thought
I might have reached the end.
I’d do it all again.
Everything I did to get to you (everything, everything).
Everything I did to get to you, oh (everything, everything).
Everything I did to get to you, baby.

On the road to where we are
I think I might’ve lost me
Somewhere in the city

All the hearts I ever held
just held me back.
I’ve been bruised and burned
but somehow I’m intact.
All the times I thought
I might have reached the end.
I’d do it all again.
Everything I did to get to you (everything, everything).
Everything I did to get to you (everything, everything).
Everything I did for you, (I did for you).
