lyrics

Please excuse my manners for I suffer from a problem 
of believing that my thoughts won't go away unless I say them 
So it might sound like I'm talking to myself when I'm deep in conversation 
It's a problem that I'm working on, I thank you for your patience 
But imagine for a second that I could listen to every word that you just said 
Instead of getting caught up in my head trying to finish all your sentences 
and occasionally letting the words slip form my lips that I want to say next 
But if I wanted to hear what I wanted to hear I would talk to myself all day instead of you 
Lalala I can't hear you 
Lalalala I'm not listening 
Now I'm hating on myself but I'm not getting better so I'm hating on you so it's not self-centered now I'm hating on you but I'm not feeling better so I'm hating on myself and I just need to breathe 
God grant me serenity and I swear that if I make it through this moment then I will believe 
God grant me serenity and I swear that if I make it through this moment then I will believe in you 
Lalalala I can't hear you 
Lalalallalalala 
And sometimes when I'm playing my songs I wonder if there's anyone listening at all but I swear to god I hope I die before I ever get bored of singing to myself
