about

This was recorded in my friend Riley's bedroom after a sleepless night where I almost attempted suicide. I was talking to her to help calm down, and got out my guitar to play a couple songs. She recorded them. It was a very special moment, and I wanted to share it. Both songs appear on Fictional Life.

Track Name: Song For The End
Don’t you hang on too long for me
Don’t you hang on if it hurts too much
If you can’t handle the pain
If you feel like you’re too drained
Don’t hang on too long for me

If it hurts too much, then

Don’t you make yourself cry for me
Don’t you let it hurt you any more
If you need to move on
Cuz you’ve been hurting too long
Don’t you make yourself cry for me

If it hurts too much then

Let go please
Don’t stay if you can’t handle it
It’s ok to leave
If you know you’re out of time
There’s so much you’ve done
For everyone
And often not yourself so
If it hurts too much, let go please

You know I’d hate to see you leave
I think that my heart might even break
But I can’t stand to see
You hurting so deep
So even though I’d hate to see you leave

If it hurts too much then

Don’t you hang on too long for me
Don’t you hang on if it hurts too much
If you can’t handle the pain
If you feel like you’re too drained
Don’t hang on too long for me

If It hurts too much then

Let go please
Don’t stay if you can’t handle it
It’s ok to leave
If you know you’re out of time
There’s so much you’ve done
For everyone
And often not yourself so
If it hurts too much, let go please
Track Name: Don't Need You
There are so many things
I need to unlearn
About the way I thought
the world worked

I want to delete every piece
of information I thought I knew
I want to undo
everything that hurts

I wanna be happy for once
I wanna be proud of myself
I wanna happy for once
Not worried about anybody else
I want to be proud of who I am
Not worried about what I’ll have to do
And I need to teach myself I don’t need you

I don’t need to be thin to be pretty
and I don’t need to love a man
to make myself a real girl
cuz that’s already what I am

And feminine doesn’t mean small and weak
it means beautiful and strong
I guess if I think on it hard enough
I knew that all along

I wanna be happy for once
I wanna be proud of myself
I wanna happy for once
Not worried about anybody else
I want to be proud of who I am
Not worried about what I’ll have to do
And I need to teach myself I don’t need you
I need to teach myself I don’t need you
I need to teach myself I don’t need you
