Please don't invite me, please don't invite me I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone And don't remind me, please don't remind me I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know Leave without me because I don't wanna go Just add water, let me grow Please forget me and be happy on your own Just add water, let me go I'm feeling salty, but I'm not the sea I'm fungus in fresh water, cobwebs in your cupboard I saw my friends leave after the party I wasn't invited, never invited Leave without me because I don't wanna go Rather keep my money safe inside my home Please forget me and be happy on your own Just add water let me go Please don't remind me, please don't remind me I'll sleep until it's over, fidget and roll over And when I wake up, greet me with a hug A body warm and loving, show me I'm not disgusting Leave without me because I don't wanna go (don't wanna go) Just add water, let me grow (let me grow) Please don't worry I'll be fine on my own (fine on my own) I'll turn the lights off when I go Pay my bills and fold my clothes Take care of my family and my home Just add water let me go (let me go)

Banana Bread 04:46
You're falling further down but I've got you by a thread I wrap the cord around my arms until my hands start to turn red But it's not enough, it won't be enough to save you.. Mmm She's so in love with all the things I hate most about myself I'm so in love with all the sounds she makes when she smiles and well It's a little tough to put conker shells on ice sheets Without breaking through and flooding the whole town I hope you're alright, I didn't wanna wake up last night 'Cause I quite liked the dream I had of holding your hand It's funny how slowly time goes when my thoughts have been racing all this time It's alright to feel a little bit of darkness now and then I know I've said it once but I still tell myself again and again "You'll never be enough", but what is enough? You're selfless, isn't that enough? Banana bread before I go to bed will put the bees to sleep Otherwise they'll buzz and sting my lungs all night inside of me Just wait a little while, you don't cry too much You know that when you smile the sun shines more gently

Dear 04:49
Everyone's got a thing, a thing they don't like A thing that makes them stand in front of the sink With tears in their eyes Everyone's got a thing, maybe they won't cry Maybe they can't even bear to utter the words The doctor prescribed I won't even lie, I'm screaming inside all the time It seems like a breeze, it feels like a dream But I don't wanna die She can't stop hurting herself and He won't look in your eyes Friend, I knew every time you were lying And he got himself messed up with the wrong guys Everyone's got a thing, a thing they don't like A thing that makes them double-think when They're standing at the railway crossing lights Gotta stop forgetting the fact It's not just me in this goddamn world My brain is a child, I will love him for that But don't lose sight of your baby girl I don't wanna wake up sometimes And I don't wanna sing And I don't care what happens tonight As long as I feel something

Talk to Me 04:37
You don't have to be a hero to save the world It doesn't make you a narcissist to love yourself It feels like nothing is easy, it'll never be That's alright, let it out, talk to me You don't have to be a prodigy to be unique You don't have to know what to say or what to think You don't have to be anybody you can never be That's alright, let it out, talk to me Anxiety, tossing turning in your sleep Even if you run away, you still see them in your dreams It's so dark tonight, but you'll survive Certainly It's alright, come inside and talk to me We can talk here on the floor On the phone if you prefer I'll be here until you're okay Let your words release your pain You and I will share the weight Growing stronger day by day It's so dark outside tonight Build a fire warm and bright And the wind it howls and bites Bite it back with all your might Anxiety, tossing turning in your sleep Even if you run away, you still see them in your dreams It's so dark tonight, it looks nice Fall asleep It's alright, come inside and talk to me
