Lyrics

Lately, I’ve been
isolating myself too much
I swear these walls have seen
all my lowest points
I can hear them
mocking my words
they scream them back at me

Okay, I get it
I know that I’ve kinda fallen off
Haven’t left this room in three days, going strong
one for all my heartbreak,
the second got no clue
and third, for all my mistakes, I wish I could undo

I said I get it
I need to clean myself up
I pretended best I could but you still saw through all my theatrics tried to seem okay,
guess I’m a shitty actress

Guess I’m a shitty actress

Oh

Oh

You said you were kinda sick
of me keeping to myself
I said, I know, trust me
no one hates me more than I do

I think I need some help
been in a lot of hell
Talking to myself, trying to escape this damn bedroom

I’m trying my best to keep you from knowing
all of this fucked up shit that I am going through but it takes so much energy to put on a good show, a good show.

Okay, I get it
I know that I’ve kinda fallen off
Haven’t left this room in three days, going strong
one for all my heartbreak,
the second got no clue
and third, for all my mistakes, I wish I could undo

I said I get it, I need to clean myself up
I pretended best I could but you still saw
through all my theatrics
tried to seem okay, guess I’m a shitty actress

Guess I’m a shitty actress
