Sitting in a room looking out, seeing nothing but white
Empty, alone, yet never alone
with all these thoughts
never alone with all these regrets and fears
Listening to a soft song with sad lyrics
Using music to feel when we can’t do it ourselves
Are we even alive if we can’t feel?
If we can’t love, hate, win, or lose without a song
To express how we feel about ourselves and others
But I understand
In this age, we would rather wallow in others' pain than lie in our own
And yet I can’t seem to express how I feel without a chorus or a tune in my head
keeping me off the edge
