Trying to impress a guy by attending his party but not even speaking to him. Thinking, the only reason I'm here is for him, but I'm too nervous to go near him. Based on a real life event.


I sing to mask
All the nervous bits
Cause you know when I laugh
I can’t help but feel like
I’m shit for brains
Yeah I’m fucking lame
And I can’t help but ask
What am I even doing here

What am I doing here?

My eyes wander
I just can’t stand still
I made this awkward
I get why we take pills
Hoping for the better
Maybe I’ll say I’m ill
I still can’t help but ask
What am I even doing here?

Oh shoot, a dear old friend
One I really liked
But he had other plans
Now he’s got a wife
Obsessed with work and knows
Nothing about me
Guess its how things go
What am I even doing here?

And then I see his face
A year worth of chasing
Thinking, I’m a disgrace
Why keep returning
Being neighborly
But if we’re being honest
Just trying to prove that you mean nothing
Yet you’re something
Its why I’m here

You’re why I’m here.
