  • Lyrics
  • My friends, they wanna take me to the movies
    I tell 'em to fuck off, I'm holding hands with my depression
    And right when I think I've overcome it
    Anxiety starts kicking in to teach that shit a lesson
    Oh, I try my best just to be social
    I make all these plans with friends and hope they call and cancel
    Then I overthink about the things I'm missing
    Now I'm wishing I was with 'em

    Feel like I'm always apologizing for feeling
    Like I'm out of my mind when I'm doing just fine
    And my exes all say that I'm hard to deal with
    And I admit it, yeah

    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, ah
    All my friends they don't know what it's like, what it's like

    Always wanted to be one of those people in the room
    That says something and everyone puts their hand up
    Like, "If you're sad put your hand up
    If you hate someone, put your hand up
    If you're scared, put your hand up"

    Feel like I'm always apologizing for feeling
    Like I'm out of my mind when I'm doing just fine
    And my exes all say that I'm hard to deal with
    And I admit it, it's true

    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
    And I thought that I could take something to fix it
    Damn, I wish it, I wish it was that simple, ah
    All my friends they don't know what it's like, what it's like

    I got all these thoughts, running through my mind
    All the damn time and I can't seem to shut it off
    I think I'm doing fine most of the time
    I think that I'm alright, but I can't seem to shut it off
    I got all these thoughts, running through my mind
    All the damn time and I can't seem to shut it off
    I think I'm doing fine most of the time
    I say that I'm alright, but I can't seem to shut it off
    Shut it, shut it, yeah

    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, ah
    All my friends they don't know what it's like, what it's like

    Li-i-i-i-ike
    What it's like, what it's like
    Hmm-mm-mm, mmm
    What it's like
    I love this song Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
