relief

I've been so calm since you left me here
I have had no will to try and disappear

Mulling over my thoughts
I negotiated with my fear of
Loneliness for the rest of my years
Why does everybody need to be with somebody else to feel good inside

Ditching all of my makeup
Screw the praise and all the fakeness of
All the highly pretentious parades
Don't you see that you're the only one who really minds

I've been so calm since you left me here
I have had no will to try and disappear
Suddenly the world is not such a scary place
Suddenly I have the time to please my taste

Grab your coat and I'll lead you to
All the places that I've been to
Show you just how I've ended up here this
Empty room all set to negotiate with your fears
