  • Mmh, mmh-mhm

    My little love
    I see your eyes widen like an ocean
    When you look at me so full of my emotions
    I'm finding it hard to be here sincerely
    I know you feel lost, it's my fault completely

    Tell me you love me
    I love you a million percent

    I don't recognize myself in the coldness of the daylight
    So I ain't surprised you can read through all of my lies
    I feel so bad to be here when I'm so guilty
    I'm so far gone and you're the only one who can save me

    Oi, I feel like you don't love me
    Why do you feel like that?
    Don't you like me?
    You know mommy doesn't like
    Anyone else like I like you, right?

    I'm holdin' on (barely)
    Mama's got a lot to learn (it's heavy)
    I'm holdin' on (catch me)
    Mama's got a lot to learn (teach me)

    Mummy's been having a lot of big feelings recently
    Like how?
    Just, like, hang on, um, my fingers are trapped
    Like, um, I feel a bit confused
    Why?
    I don't know and I feel
    Like I don't really know what I'm doing
    Oh, at all?
    At all
    And that would make you go, "Ay, yi, yi"

    My little love
    Tell me, do you feel the way my past aches?
    When you lay on me, can you hear the way my heart breaks?
    I wanted you to have everything I never had
    I'm so sorry if what I've done makes you feel sad

    I love your dad 'cause he gave you to me
    You're half me and you're half daddy
    Oh

    I'm holdin' on (barely)
    Mama's got a lot to learn (it's heavy)
    I'm holdin' on (catch me)
    Mama's got a lot to learn (teach me)

    Mmh, mmh-mhm

    I'm having a bad day, I'm having a very anxious day
    I feel very paranoid, feel very stressed
    Um, I have a hangover, which never helps, but
    I feel like today is the first day since I left him that I feel lonely
    And I never feel lonely, I love being on my own
    I always preferred being on my own than being with people
    And I feel like maybe I've been, like, overcompensating
    And being out and, and stuff like that to keep my mind off of it
    And I feel like today, I'm home, and I wanna be at home
    I just wanna watch TV and curl up into a ball and
    Be in my sweats and stuff like that
    But I just feel really lonely
    I feel a bit frightened that I might feel like this a lot Writer/s: Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, Greg Kurstin

  • Tracey Queen from Kentomg this song pulled at my heart strings. to hear your child say they can't see you and you are a ghost is tantamount to heartbreak. love this song for the honesty and self enlightment for others
