     When you leave me, I feel my throat close

my air leaves my lungs and they colaps

I feel suffocation creeping in

it hurts, it hurts

how could you make me feel this way?

     When I lose, I can't breathe

I feel like I'm not enough

like I'll never be enough

when I can't figure something out

when I can't get it right

when I feel myself slip up

when I make a mistake

     Suffocation, suffocation

the terrible feeling I get

when I can't make everyone proud

I know I shouldn't care

they say "Opinions don't matter"

but I cant help feeling

being enough is the only way to live

and critizies my choice

and let me be wrong for caring

but the invalidation is frightning

and that fear, I cannot stand
