lyrics

I'm in constant distress while you're near, I confess
but I chill by listing all the reasons why I should sidestep that mess.
Still I'm curious about why I'm living in doubt and without.
Do I really think I'll never make it right?
It's why I lose sleep at night.
But don't fret; I'm fine.
Don't lose your mind if it's over mine.
Maybe you think that I make excuses and deny and avert my eyes,
inflate my fears and cook up reasons not to try,
and yeah you're right.
But one day soon I'll make amends.
Lord knows I should break these trends.
But until I do I'll wallow, weep, and spend too much time in bed.
But when I gave up on my hope for solid ground,
I found that disconnection is okay.
When one holds on too tight, it slips away, alright...
And my aesthetic breaks my neck.
It starves my heart to feed my head.
But just because I've slept alone for quite some time
doesn't mean that I'm crying.
So don't fret; I'm fine.
Don't lose your mind if it's over mine.
