Anxiety is high
To burst like a cherry
It's on the rise
Why can't I be merry?
Don't look at me
because I'm falling.
Why can't I be free
of the fear that's calling?
For years I've been holding back
Knowing I'm a ticking time bomb
I tried to tell myself to relax,
but my sanity is as big as a crumb
Too many times I've told myself I'm wrong
I don't know how long I can stay strong
