I've walked alone for many years facing an awful lot of fears
I have been sneaking in the shade watching my world go down in flames
I've begged for help a thousand times my blood work always came back fine try to recall what the therapist said spending most days alone in...
Hey doctor can you save me? From this nightmare dear friend can't you see me? I’m in despair
it may look shiny and clean do I really have to scream
I've never used them happy pills
but I found other ways and skills I know this state just can't be right I'm way too tired of this fight
Have you ever felt the same? Before in silence we remain before the days become darker you should know you’re not alone
You can meet me at the party let’s have a great depression party ‘cause I know I'm not alone you should know you're not alone
Hey doctor can you heal me? I'm getting there
dear friend can you see me? I’m in repair
it may look shiny and clean it may look shiny and clean it's not what is seems
