I mean I’ve gotta be honest I’m feeling okay without you
Maybe I spent too much time on the other end of the state but hey
fuck you you’ve treated me bad for way too long

I’m just sick now cause I’m home

Havent felt needed or wanted or liked for probably 8 days
and somedays
I lay on my couch feeling sad

Cause you make me feel bad
I can’t say I’ve been feeling much since i

Got home last saturday night and god knows
I needed to see you
but you’re way too tired

or trying to see someone else when I haven’t seen you for months
Cause fuck me right? Fuck me right?

I mean I’ve gotta be honest I can’t seem to focus when all of my friends just can’t seem to resolve this or make me feel better than nothing at all and I can’t say I blame them since I’ve hit the wall

I mean I’m better than you at least I fucking hope so
I’ve been telling myself shit to make me feel hopeful
Or tired or homesick or who fucking knows
I just know I can’t fit into all my old clothes
