lyrics

i’ve tried
stayed up so many nights
drafting up exactly what i like
help me into this dress
i’ll explain the rest

if i say nothing that’s just what i’ll become
i finally have a word for it

tell me, baby, why am i crying?
i’m so happy, but when i said the words i fell apart

it’s okay, ask away
tear it off
look me in the eye when you say it is fine

it’s new
i’m struggling with what i should do
i can’t apologize enough for this mood
but i hate public spaces
i’ll cover my face until i get home

wish i were happy as anything at all
now that i know there is no letting go

tell me, baby, why am i crying?
i’m so happy, but when i said the words i fell apart

it’s okay, ask away
tear it off
look me in the eye when you say it is fine

i thought i’d be safe here
it’s fine, i’ll come out and i’ll be saved here

but noononononononono that’s a different kind of weird
but nonononononon that’s a different kind of queer

it’s okay, ask away
i will hide
i won’t look you in the eye

baby, tell me why am i crying?
i’m so happy, but when i said the words i fell apart

it’s okay, ask away
tear it off
but look me in the eye when I say it’s fine
