I think I've got a dilemma

One I don't know if it's been heard before

Are there people who think too much?

Feel too much?

Or am I all alone

 

Because I'm laying in bed

Almost 1am

Crying myself to sleep

 

Maybe I miss everyone

That I gave out my love

And I feel down

That I couldn't be enough

 

I wanted to fix everyone

Who didn't want to be fixed

But I can't just let the broth spoil,

I will admit

 

I just keep giving out my love

And don't get much back

Mannequin mess

Empty as a hollow Easter egg

 

I wish I knew why

 

I jumped inside this rocket ship

Cupid shined and Cupid kissed

And flew out with no restraints

But I believed I would be okay

 

My friends jeep judging me

Friendship constantly on the line

I'm about to lose everything I worked so hard to find

 

Being myself 

Never gets me anywhere good

I feel demented

I feel fragmented

Like everything I think I know

Is a delusion

 

So where should I be?

Who do I love?

Because I'm sure as hell not loving myself

I need an answer

I need a prayer

Somebody help me out here!
