  • My double vision
    Is only amplifying everything he isn't
    'Til I feel less attached and bored to death, but listen
    It's no one's fault, it's just my terrible condition

    And I've been thinkin' if I move out this year
    I'll feel my parents slipping
    Away and also I'm just scared of that commitment
    I really think sometimes there's something that I'm missing

    Oh, I know spiraling is miserable
    I should probably go back home
    Why does that feel difficult, difficult?
    Oh, I hope I wake up invisible
    I'd be someone no one knows
    I guess I'm just difficult

    To name this feeling
    Would take a hundred thousand years, some kind of grieving
    But over what I never had, so I've been speaking
    To my therapist, I call her every weekend

    I meant to tell you
    How I've hated how we left things when it fell through
    'Cause you were everything to me, where did you run to?
    Was it something that I said that colored you blue?

    Oh, I know spiraling is miserable
    I should probably go back home
    Why does that feel difficult, difficult?
    Oh, I hope I wake up invisible
    I'd be someone no one knows
    I guess I'm just difficult, difficult

    Difficult (I)
    Difficult

    I've been drinking
    And staying up too late reliving bad decisions
    I thought eventually my ranting here would fix it
    I really think sometimes there's something that I'm missing

    Oh, I know spiraling is miserable
    I should probably go back home
    Why does that feel difficult, difficult?
    Oh, I hope I wake up invisible
    I'd be someone no one knows
    I guess I'm just difficult, difficult

    Oh, I know spiraling is miserable
    I should probably go back home
    Why does that feel difficult, difficult?
    Oh, I hope I wake up invisible
    I'd be someone no one knows
    I guess I'm just difficult, difficult Writer/s: Aaron Desner, Gracie Abrams
