  • I want everything to be perfect
    Pick you apart at the seams
    Drown you out if I don’t want to hear you
    Crush every single one of your dreams

    I’m going under the water it’s pulling me down
    I can’t help myself

    I’m my own worst enemy, enemy, enemy
    It’ll be the end of me, end of me, end of me

    I wanted to go the distance
    I met everything with resistance
    I pulled the pin out on the grenade
    Burned down everything I had made

    As I struggle in here I see angels near
    Can’t help myself

    I’m my own worst enemy, enemy, enemy
    It’ll be the end of me, end of me, end of me
    And the coast is clear on me, clear on me, clear on me
    I’m my own worst enemy, enemy
    I’m an open field

    I put on my armour
    Strap on my boots
    Look around to see which weapons I’ll choose
    I’m going for medals, decoration
    I’m pulling out from my lonely station

    So I’ll call you if I need help
    I’ll call you if I need help
    I’ll call you if I need help

    I’m my own worst enemy, enemy, enemy
    It’ll be the end of me, end of me, end of me
    And the coast is clear on me, clear on me, clear on me
    I’m my own worst enemy
    Enemy in an open field

    Just leave me alone here
    Just leave me alone here
    Alone here
    Just leave me alone Writer/s: SALAAM REMI, WRITERS UNKNOWN
