Oh hello there anxiety, my oldest friend
Back for an unwanted visit again?
I thought I told you, I no longer have fear
I’m stronger than ever now, didn’t you hear?
You were like a cloak that I wore all year round
Heavy and stiff, always weighing me down
But I cast off that cloak and I’m learning to breathe
So if you don’t mind now please, I’ll ask you to leave
Oh what’s that, anxiety? You’re Constricting my throat?
Reducing my voice to a whimper and croak?
And now comes the part where you get in my head
Try to convince me I’d be better off dead
But I’m smart now, anxiety, I know that’s not true
The days of you poisoning my mind are through
I won’t let your vitriol dictate what I do
And the only thing better off dying is you
So I’ll let you visit this one last time
But then you can fuck off out of my life
You weren’t invited, and won’t ever be
So thanks for the memories but now you must leave.
Let’s together be wild and disgraceful
Allow ourselves to come undone
Though our passion may overwhelm us
Though our fire may blister the sun
Let’s escape to our secret universe
Where our entire existence is us
Where outside of these four walls
Nothing is or ever was
Though sadness once seduced me
And melancholy held me tight
Now 2am’s for lovers
And Lust’s reclaimed the night
Let’s embrace these sacred moments
Share lungs and single breath
And when the daylight hour approaches
Together die a little death.
