Just say something

I'm stuck in my room, don't know what to do
I've got a pen in my hand but words won't flow through
Thoughts going everywhere
I don't know what I'm doing now

Tell me to stay, tell me to go
Just do something, anything to let me know I'll be okay
And that I'll make it through just one more day

They say it's just a phase, but what if it ain't?
What am I gonna do if this lasts my whole life through?
What will I say to the people who care...
Will I just let them down like I always do
Will I stand up and fight?
Or will I do what's right, according to you?

Say I'm a mistake, say I can't do anything right
Say you wish I weren't here
So I can pack up my bags and leave
Without feeling sorry for hurting you
Without feeling sorry for going my own way
