lyrics

Soft rock, soft lamp light
Waiting room, weeknight
Trying to sort things out between my ears

Familiar stranger
Stresses the danger
Of dwelling on doubt and irrational fear

If I never go back to therapy
I’m spared the full extent of what is wrong with me
I have distanced my friends and family
None of this was my intent
What is wrong with me?
Wrong with me

Recumbent red couch
Permanent head slouch
Posture betrays I’m not sleeping enough
I’m sick of whining
Obsessing, and pining
For days when my body would not call my bluff

If I never go back to therapy
I’m spared the full extent of what is wrong with me
I have distanced my friends and family
None of this was my intent
What is wrong with me?
Wrong with me
Wrong with me
Wrong with me

If you cover the rust, cover the rust
With a new coat of paint
It will look a lot better
But you’ll know it ain’t

I can regain your trust, regain your trust
And develop restraint
But bear in mind
I’ll be inclined
To find a new complaint

I should probably go back to therapy
‘Cuz everyone is sick of putting up with me
I'm so sorry, my friends and family
None of this was my intent
What is wrong with me?
Wrong with me
Wrong with me
Wrong with me
