This Note

I worry about the walls coming down and the pain behind my eyes
And how no matter how hard I try, I'm still a step behind
And still try to breathe without air mixing with all the things I couldn't say
I pray things will change, for better or worse

I'm still biting my nails and I'm sick of the stress
And anxiety does nothing for my tired and aching brain
Nothing much has changed, maybe just how much I care
I'm hanging from a thread tied carefully around my neck

I'm waiting for a sign that everything I've been thinking is all wrong
Something has to give
I'm not hopeless, but I'm bordering on helplessness
I've never felt so useless. I need a hand, but I won't take it
So keep away, I'll just drag you down

The itch is making me feel like a stranger in my own skin
I don't recognize the face in the mirror
This note should explain, why some days you can't talk to me
I need to be alone, to sort out who I am from the mess I've made
I pray things will change, but so far things are still the same

I'm waiting for a sign that everything I've been thinking is all wrong
Something has to give
I'm not hopeless, but I'm bordering on helplessness
I've never felt so useless. I need a hand, but I won't take it
So keep away, I'll just drag you down

I'm not quite lost but I can't find my way
I'm more familiar with the shadows under my eyes than rest of my face
But my outlook's changed, I'm not bothered by what you say
Notice how I've changed and tell me things are better, I need you to
I've been living in another world, one less alive than this

I'm waiting for a sign that everything I've been thinking is all wrong
Something has to give
I'm not hopeless, but I'm bordering on helplessness
I've never felt so useless. I need a hand
I need a hand, so just hold on to me
I need a hand, so just hold on to me
