  • Why am I so damn lonely?
    Am I the only one who feels this way?
    Why am I so damn reckless?
    I can't shake this, I am not okay

    And they say, maybe I should learn a little thing about depression
    Like crying to a stranger's gonna help me with progression
    And I don't wanna take it, I don't wanna learn my lesson
    All I really want is just the love and the affection
    And they don't understand a single word that I am saying
    All they wanna do is put me on some medication
    It's hard for me to open up, it's hard for me to say shit
    Writin' all this music's like my form of meditation

    And ooh, ooh, they've come to take me away again
    Take control of me and all my friends
    I've got this feeling and I can't pretend

    Why am I so damn lonely?
    Am I the only one who feels this way?
    Why am I so damn reckless?
    I can't shake this, I am not okay

    Why am I so damn lonely?
    Am I the only one who feels this way?
    Why am I so damn reckless?
    I can't shake this, I am not okay

    So I thought, what's the point in trying if I cannot find a reason?
    I'm lying to myself, I got a problem with believing
    Believing in the good, I know my face can be deceiving
    'Cause I've been tryna hide that I've been falling off the deep end
    We're posting happy photos like we have two different faces
    Writing, "Take me back to this" from when we're on vacation
    Doesn't help me fill this hole of loneliness I'm facing
    Like twenty likes a post supposed to be the one salvation

    And ooh, ooh, they've come to take me away again
    Take control of me and all my friends
    I've got this feeling and I can't pretend

    Why am I so damn lonely?
    Am I the only one who feels this way?
    Why am I so damn reckless?
    I can't shake this, I am not okay

    Why am I so damn lonely?
    Am I the only one who feels this way?
    Why am I so damn reckless?
    I can't shake this, I am not okay, ooh, ooh Writer/s: Toni Watson
