Yes, you have family and friends
And you should be perfectly happy
But that isn’t how it is, isn’t how the story goes
When you look at your life
You see you could be happy but why are you not?

Can’t get away from these hurt, painful
Feelings and things that drive you down
No matter what you cant turn the feelings around
Like a merry-go-round spinning and spinning
Not stopping

Feelings like your not good enough, not worth anything
Like you’re trapped in a constant spiral toward failure
Nothing you do is enough
Not having the courage to speak up for yourself

To look in the mirror and want
something more, something better, something real
want someone to hold you close
love you for who you are

wish you could get out of this place, your body,
When trying and trying isn’t enough
Ending up with giving up
