Enjoy your time with other people. And don't think that everyone doesn't have problems, they just prefer to solve yours over theirs :)

Just one dinner
And that is all I ask
I message you, I call you, I ask you
But every single time it's just that same reply
Maybe not tonight

You message me you call me you ask me
Every single time you have a problem
I answer you I help you I advise you
And just today I have to say
But not tonight

I tried so hard to save the world when all I really wanted was to save myself
I am here at the point of breaking down
But that isn't enough to stop those calls
I already said
Not tonight

My head drops
All is blank and dark
I hear all your voices around me inquiring about my death
The doctor shook his head and could only say
Only tonight

I couldn't see all your faces
It's blurry it's getting dark it's disappearing
You asked for my last words
Struggling and fighting the Grimm, I mouthed them
How about dinner tonight?
