about

sad lil song that used to be a poem

i wrote the poem a little over 2 years ago and recently found an old voice memo where i sang it, so i thought i'd rework it and record it for you today with a little bit free time that i had

hope you enjoy. sorry for the low qual, until i get a real mic everything will continue to be super super lofi

lyrics

there is an immense sadness that lives inside me
and no matter how hard i try i can’t seem to outrun it
it always finds a way to surface

to spill over and wash away the smallest signs of life
and light
it'll break me down, of this i’m sure
it'll break me down, of this i’m sure

i promise that it's never been your fault
please promise that you won't run away when
you find you can't piece me back together

just let me catch my breath, real fast
i'll start running again, real soon
it’d be nice to have someone at the finish line this time,
this time
