I look at the mirror and get told I’m a great guy
So why do I feel like that’s a big lie
So why does my own I’m reflection looks away,
Every time I try to look him in the eye.

I look at my friends and get told I’m a fun guy,
So why do they act like I don’t exist
So why does it feel like they do care for me
And leave me at every moment

I look at my work and get told I’m a smart guy
So why don’t I know what I want
So why do I feel like my life won’t last the night
And complain when I succeed

I look at my self and say that I am strong
So why don’t I believe that
Why does that feel like it’s the biggest lie
Why do I keep carrying on.

All I want is peace
So why can’t I have it.
I have to say that this is heavily inspired by the artist NF as I find his songs completely relatable.
