lyrics

Don't you know there was a time
these decisions were not mine and I was sent for help
but what I began to find
is it hurts to have my mind looking on itself.

Well, you don't need therapy.
You're smarter than your parents see.
Who cares if they took care of me?
It's fair to say they're scared of me.
Help me care to see
that there's a deeper harmony.
Life could be your fantasy
if you could see

You don't need that.
You don't need that.
You don't need that.
You don't need that.

I still remember when you told me I shit on your life.
I still remember when you told me you were sorry.
Now when you tell me that you love me, I can't make a sound.
I guess it goes to show the lows can weigh you down.

When I'm searching for a soul
each new detail that I know only turns to doubt.
'Til the screaming in my head,
it shouts "Either get me off or get off me now".

Well, you don't need dope, I mean,
you hold plenty of dopamine.
Grow new teeth and hope to clean
the poems that he once spoke to me.
Hold these frozen dreams
and store 'em in a melody.
Like could be your symphony
if you could see

You don't need that.
You don't need that.
You don't need that.
You don't need that.

Well, I found love.
It only lasts a week.
I don't wanna hurt.
Why do they love me?
Yeah, I found love.
It only lasts a week
and if I haven't learned
I'll just burn the other cheek.

I forgot those seven thoughts
could form above my mouth.
From now 'til then
I'll force this conversation out.

Well you don't need sympathy
to break away from misery.
Ditch all of the fear you feel's
a sin to even live with me.
Toss these stupid drinks
and make a mental music sheet.
Life could be your lucid dream
if you could see

You don't need that.
You don't need that.
You don't need that.
You don't need that.

Now I've been far and wide searching for miracles
but once you know someone they're just predictable
and keeping that in mind, I'll sing a simple sigh:
Na na na na na na.

I still remember when you told me I shit on your life.
I still remember when you told me you were sorry.
Now when you tell me that you love me, I can't make a sound.
I guess it goes to show the lows can weigh you down.

I still remember when you hurt me and ruined my life.
I still remember when you finally said you're sorry.
Now when I tell you that's behind me, I still have my doubts.
I guess it goes to show the lows can weigh you down.
I guess it goes to show the lows can weigh you down.
I guess it goes to show the lows can weigh you down.
