I've forgotten how to speak,

I've forgotten how to breathe,

I've forgotten how to see

Past the person you want me to be


I've forgotten who I am

I've forgotten who I was

I've forgotten how to smile

I've forgotten how to love


And I'm singing now

To let you know

That I'm not ready

to let me go

I'm singing now

To let you know

This positive art

Is all for show


I've forgotten how to scream

I've forgotten how to dream

I've forgotten who to see

The face in the mirror it isn't me


And I'm singing now

To let you know

That I'm not ready

to let me go

I'm singing now

To let you know

This positive art

Is all for show


Please, please, let me be

Please, please, come for me

Please, please, you gotta know

I am scared of letting go


And I'm singing now

To let you know

That I'm not ready

to let me go

I'm singing now

To let you know

This positive art

Is all for show
