Julia Michaels has been vocal about her mental health problems ever since the success of her "Issues
" single. She even wrote an intimate essay about her battles with anxiety for the magazine Glamour
. Here, she sings about her personal experience living with the condition.But all my friends, they don't know what it's like, what it's like
They don't understand why I can't sleep through the night
I've been told that I could take something to fix it
Damn, I wish it, I wish it was that simple
"I wanted it to be a little satirical, because anxiety is typically such a dark topic," Michaels said. "It's something that when you talk about it, you don't talk about it with a smile. I guess it's my way of trying to take my power back from anxiety. I'm like, 'Yeah, it sucks. I have it, but it's fine.'"
