Finally finished it.

Don't Look At Me




Walked out the room, and I felt that I wasn’t doing so well,

Back at the apartment, out came the bottle of red

Put my heart into the bottle, smashed the bottle against the wall

Tried to tell you how I felt, but the words they wouldn’t come out right


I get a bit of news, out comes the phone, type you a message

Remember where we stand, hit delete and I get shocked all over again

Met you for a drink in the aftermath,

Thought we could be friends, coz I didn’t wanna let you go

But now I know

Now I know


So I slammed down hard on the emotional breaks

A carload of love hit me from behind

Tore through the windscreen and scattered all over the road

This is my ode


Look at me, can’t you see I’m not breathing

And my sanity it’s leaving

Deceiving, and tearing out my heart & soul


So look at me, can’t you see I stopped breathing.

Hit the deck and beg forgiveness

It’s still a mess, I’m black & blue inside


So look at me

Look at me, won’t you please

Look at me. Please don’t look at me.

I’ll stop breathing
