About Feelings, Or Lack Thereof

 

What is it like to feel something for more than a week?

After two years, a few tears, and a heartbreak, I’m weak.

I said I’d work on myself, now I’m sleeping around,

Tried to find a shred of respect, but none can be found.

 

Now I’m dancing on tables when I should be in bed,

And I’m sad and depressed but have no tears left to shed.

So I’ll lie next to this stranger and pretend to care,

I won’t think about the heart that he failed to repair.

 

What is it like to feel something for more than a day?

‘Cause just when I think I feel something, it goes away.

Not sure what I expected from the guy at the bar,

Or the guy I only liked ‘cause he played the guitar.

 

And I ghosted the dude that took my virginity,

Then I stood up that one guy who went to MIT.

I’ll never admit, but I know I’m a hypocrite,

I’m numb and he’s dumb, he takes me home and I fake it.

 

What’s it like to feel something for more than an hour?

I feel nothing, washing him off me in the shower. 

He is just another number that has touched my skin,

If you’re pleasuring someone, is it really a sin?

 

Feeling nothing at all is a dangerous zone.

I would rather fake it for life, than end up alone.

I can’t bear to believe that I’ll never fall in love,

So I’ll just blame it on my feelings, or lack thereof.
