I know you want to tell me that it'll all be okay. But right now, it's not what I need.


I know that you mean well
I know what you're trying to say
I don't really want your help
I don't want healing that way

I don't want your good advice
All I ask is you'll keep still
I just need to hear my voice
Do you have some time to kill?

Changes only takes place when you put your feelings on the shelf
But please just let me have this, I want to feel sorry for myself

She can have whoever she wants
I know that life's not fair
People get to choose who they want
But losing her still makes me scared

You say "Oh honey,
Everyone knows what it's like to get hurt"
I know you want to lift me up
But right now, the truth just hurts

When someone feels sorry, at least you know for sure that they care
Then they try to direct you, you turn your back, and they're no longer there
Fields of wildflowers, brave seasons, with roots grown over time
Tend the late bloomers, shelter them, or else they start die
