No one ever says these things to me
and that is ok with me
No one ever bends the rules for me
If you go away, go away tomorrow
I’ll be lost but I’ll wait because I understand
Why, why you did

No one ever takes it seriously.
If we all did, wouldn’t everything be better?
When you’re saying no to all the things you want,
when your mind tells your body to sit down
and sleep and let it do its job
Go outside and walk a little while
Go outside and stop caring about the weather
and whether you should bend again
Just let yourself cry
