about

2020 bop about how anxieties and insecurities can make you push people away

lyrics

Made it through the day but tossed and turned all night thinkin about money
Hello, good morning- and that’s all I’ve got to say
I know my manners and appreciate politeness, but it’s 10am and I’ve already cried three times today- and I just can’t...

A stranger sat me down, looked at my hands, told me I was a creator
with a sun so strong it carries me away
Didn’t surprise me, but got me thinking just how much I dim my own light so that I won’t have to lead the way

I know you want so badly to love me
But I won’t let you, I won’t let you, no
I know you want so badly to be my friend
But I’ll keep walkin, I’ll keep walking away

Maybe it’s the moon and its phases- the ways the planets move
anything to help explain the heaviness that looms
This body, built on strong but selfish bones, is sometimes slow to realize the energy it drags out of a room

I know you want so badly to love me
But I won’t let you, I won’t let you, no
I know you want so badly to be my friend
But I’ll keep walkin, I’ll keep walking away

And I’m sorry, I’m so sorry cuz this isn’t who I used to be
And I’m scared that I won’t know the things I’ve swallowed till I spit them out at you

It ain’t so free and easy as it used to be with you- guess it’s my fault
Dunno why I try so hard to keep alone
Have fun at the show with your arm around your girl, but if it’s all the same to you, think I might just stay at home

I know you want so badly to love me
But I won’t let you, I won’t let you, no
I know you want so badly to be my friend
But I’ll keep walkin, I’ll keep walking away
