I'm trapped in my head with no way out thoughts that drive me insane when night time comes I can't get to bed I wish I could switch off my brain Hey I want to be with her Again I want to be with her I'm trapped in my head covered in doubt images burned in my mind I'm swimming through feelings because I'm still healing from someone I've left behind Hey I want to be with her Again I want to be with her Take me away get me out of my head [out of my head] Save me from myself take me anywhere instead and if she ever comes back to my world it would set me free free from me Inside my head my fears all come true I can't decide what to do I dream of the day that I could be free set me free from me Hey I want to be with her Again I want to be with her Take me away get me out of my head [out of my head] Save me from myself take me anywhere instead get me out of my head get me out of my head and if she ever comes back to my world it would set me free free from me
