  • "I want it to be like, messy"

    I'm so insecure, I think
    That I'll die before I drink
    And I'm so caught up in the news
    Of who likes me, and who hates you
    And I'm so tired that I might
    Quit my job, start a new life
    And they'd all be so disappointed
    'Cause who am I, if not exploited

    And I'm so sick of seventeen
    Where's my fucking teenage dream?
    If someone tells me one more time
    "Enjoy your youth", I'm gonna cry
    And I don't stick up for myself
    I'm anxious and nothing can help
    And I wish I'd done this before
    And I wish people liked me more

    All I did was try my best
    This the kinda thanks I get?
    Unrelentlessly upset (uh-uh, oh)
    They say these are the golden years
    But I wish I could disappear
    Ego crush is so severe
    God, it's brutal out here

    (Yeah)

    I feel like no one wants me
    And I hate the way I'm perceived
    I only have two real friends
    And lately, I'm a nervous wreck
    'Cause I love people I don't like
    And I hate every song I write
    And I'm not cool, and I'm not smart
    And I can't even parallel park

    All I did was try my best
    This the kinda thanks I get?
    Unrelentlessly upset (uh-uh, oh)
    They say these are the golden years
    But I wish I could disappear
    Ego crush is so severe
    God, it's brutal out here

    (Yeah)

    (She's having a really good time)

    Got a broken ego, broken heart
    And God, I don't even know where to start Writer/s: Daniel Nigro, Olivia Rodrigo
