lyrics

You could call this a cry for help
except I know that no one will
I've been trying to write farewell,
deciding what goes in my will

But the words are too hard to write,
and I have nothing left to give

I'm trying to follow my own advice,
but I can't help feeling that I'm on my own
There's nothing sadder than when you realize
when you need someone there's no one you can call
So I guess I'm on my own

You should probably keep walking on
cos standing with me will be hard
Cos I don't have enough in me
to follow through with what I start

And my heart is paralyzed
when all I want it just to live

And my brain is looking for a kill
It keeps me thinking things that I don't wanna
Like I how I have a cabinet full of pills,
and life is just too hard a one to swallow

So I guess I'm on my own
I don't want to be alone,
but I guess I'm on my own
