I've lost.. myself


When you have depression

And someone

Or something

Pushes you down

And you scrape your knee

It really feels like

You lost your leg

And you know

Deep down

It's just a scraped knee

It's just a scraped knee

It's gonna be okay

You're gonna be okay

But you're still on the ground

And you can't get up

And there's so much blood

And so much pain

And you think

My god

I'll never walk again

And if I do

It'll be with a limp

I need a crutch

Someone please be my crutch

Someone help me up

Off the ground

Away to safety

To my bed

In your arms

I've lost my leg

I've lost my leg

I've lost myself
