i used to be able to laugh
i used to be able to joke
but then i couldn't do that anymore
i used to be able to talk to people
i used to be able to tell them anything
but then i couldn't do that either
i used to be able to motivate myself
i used to be able to express myself
but then i couldn't even do that
i used to be able to get out of bed
i used to be able to feel emotions
i can't anymore
i used to be able to be with you
i used to be able to hold you close
(i used to be loved by you)
i'm not anymore
i used to be able to breathe
i used to be able to think

i still can

but i wish i couldn't
