Talk to Me

Talk to me
Talk to me
That’s all they seem to say
i don’t need this
what do I talk about
How miserable I am
How I wish I wasn’t here
How I wish I was lying in the ground somewhere
How I want my life back
How I want all this shit to go away
How I wish I could sleep at night
instead of crying
I’ve got my own issues
They never understand
They never listen
They just lock me up
Leave me alone to think things through
Take away everything that gives me
a glimmer of hope
a glimmer of happiness
I don’t need this
Talk to me
Talk to me
Leave me alone
Leave me alone
They can’t help me
They make me think
They make me cry
They make everything worse
They drag up the past
leave it where it is
Where I can deal
Where I’ve dealt
Where I’ve buried it
Leave me lying here
leave me crying
leave me dying
leave me to wither
leave me to rot
push my body down the drain
bury me in the woods
bury me in the river
bury me in the kitchen cupboard
I don’t care
Just let me go
Talk to me
Talk to me
That’s all they say
Let’s talk this all through
because a nice cup of tea
solves everything
solves world hunger
solves crime
solves war
solves my sodding misery
obviously
Lock me up
I won’t laugh
I won’t smile
I won’t speak
I won’t move
I won’t breathe
Lock me in my coffin
Just talk
I don’t want to talk
Talking never solved anything
It just trudges up the past
Brings everything flooding back
Making me feel inferior
Emotions flying high
Emotions causing pain
Emotions filling the void
Emotions cracking the life
Emotions causing death
Talk to me
Talk to me
That’s all the seem to say
I don’t need this
They never listen
They just lock me up
leave me alone to thing things through
Take away everything that gives me
A glimmer of hope
A glimmer of happiness
I don’t need this
Talk to me
Talk to me
Leave me alone
Leave me alone
