I miss my friends that I pretend I don’t need...

All the good words have left my mouth,
I’m completely out of things to say about it now.

More and more, I’ll catalog my doubts,
it’s the worst thing about me and it’s always around.

I made a bet that I’d forget my name
by the age of 28, I can barely stay awake.

‘cause more and more with every accolade,
I get carried away with being carried away.

I remember Halloween,
I hit my head on the edge of the sink.
Dialing out to an older me,
I miss my friends that I pretend I don’t need,
but I could have done with them this week.

On the table, my face went white and I fainted right at the wrong damn time.
I had an ECG, they checked how I breathe and said I should take my life more seriously.

I remember Halloween,
I hit my head on the edge of the sink.
Dialing out to an older me,
I miss my friends that I pretend I don’t need,
but dammit! I needed you this week.
