This song has gotta be honest.
With you, I can talk about this kind of stuff.
It’s hard to admit I’m not okay,
but I know that you’ll love me anyway.

I feel unstable sometimes,
and my depression gets me down.
I’ve found that I am not so sure,
I’ve cried more times than I can count.

I’ve laid myself down helpless on the floor
believing joy was just a lie.
I’ve felt dissolved in melting snow.
It’s just a lie.

You should’ve seen me where I was,
I didn’t think nobody could.
There were times I wanted to just run from here,
but I never would because I’m weak,
and I wasn’t made for this world.

I told myself ‘most every day,
and I still do when it overcomes me,
that in this life I’ll never be okay.
