lyrics

If you kiss me, I won’t have to speak
If you touch me, I won’t have to feel
But if you ask me, I’ll have to say
I’m not okay

If you joke with me, I won’t have to think
If you dance with me, I won’t have to sit
But if you ask me, I’ll have to say
I’m not okay

Take me, make me forget
Take me outside my head
Save me from feeling
Take all my pain away

If you lay with me, I won’t have to lie
If you carry me, I won’t have to try
But if you ask me, I’ll have to say
I’m not okay

Take me, make me forget
Take me outside my head
Save me from feeling
Take all my pain away

If you hold me, I won’t have to stand
If you catch me, I won’t have to land
But if you ask me, I’ll have to say
I’m not okay
I’m not okay
