lyrics

My friend doesn’t talk as loud as other people do
But inside all he wants to do is shout
Sometimes he feels like the walls are closing around him
And no one cares enough to pull him out

He’s afraid that no one will understand
If he tries to explain what’s in his head
So he doesn’t talk to anybody
He just buries it down deep and spends the day in bed

He doesn’t believe me when I say
That other people are here to help him along

So just tell him he’s not alone
He’s not the only one who feels this way
It’s a long and lonely road
But together it’s a little less lonely

If we all just let him know
He’s not the only one who’s crying today
Maybe he would feel okay
Maybe we all would feel okay

I am not what you would call a confident person
I feel like everything I do is wrong
I’m scared of what other people think of me
So I hide behind a made-up friend in a song

You know that I know
But I just need to hear it out loud

So just tell me I’m not alone
I’m not the only one who feels this way
It’s a long and lonely road
But together it’s a little less lonely

(I’m lost, I’m scared, I’m so alone
Please take please take please take me home
I just can’t do this on my own
I can’t hold on forever)

If you all just let me know
I’m not the only one who’s crying today
Maybe I would feel okay
I just wanna get through today

(Don’t pretend it’s okay
We all feel this way
Just breathe in deep and say
Tomorrow is another day)
