Falling Slowly Rewrite 

This is a rewrite of Falling Slowly from the Broadway musical Once. This was inspired by anxiety in general and the feelings of just wanting to get better.

I don’t know this
And I don’t want it
Anymore at all
Words fall through me
They always fool me
And I overreact
And plans that never amount
When they had been thought through
Will always disappoint

I’m a sinking boat please point me home
While there’s still time
Raise a hopeful voice that there’s a chance
I’ll make it out

Falling slowly I’m so lonely
And I can’t go back
Moods just take me and erase me
And my mind attacks
Have I suffered enough?
If I’m at war with myself
How can I ever win?

I’m a sinking boat please point me home
Is there still time?
Lend a hopeful voice do I have a choice
To make it out

Falling slowly but if you catch me
I can be okay

Who Do You Love Rewrite

This is a rewrite of Who Do You Love by Marianas Trench. This song just expresses a lot of the emotions thoughts and feelings that run through my mind with anxiety.

Well I’ve been deep in this sleeplessness
And I do know why
Wish I’d get away from myself
Will I get back on my feet and blow things open wide?
Will I ever feel good health?

Oh it’s been so long
Anxious and wish I
Was someone else
I don’t know how people see me
But I hate the way I see myself
All I can feel is broken
And I’ve been this way too long
I hear the words I’ve spoken
And everything comes out wrong
I just can’t get this together
Can’t get where I belong

How can I love?
How can I love?
How can I love?

And I’ve been deep in this anxiousness
I don’t know why
Just can’t get back to myself
How can I get back on my feet and blow things open wide
And get back to having good health
Screaming
How can I love? x7

From fable to fumble
From stable to stumble
That is me
I can’t seem to shake this anxiety
And come back to propiety
I wish I could
Can I come back to life broken?
Or should I stay away for long?
Even if words I’ve spoken
Seem to still come out wrong
Trying to get life together
And go where I belong

How can I love? x3

And I’ve been deep in this anxiousness
I don’t know why
Just can’t get back to myself
How can I get back on my feet and blow things open wide
And get back to having good health
Screaming
How can I love? x8

Wish things would quiet
I wouldn’t have to move
Moving on might as well try it
What if everything I lose?
Want nothing to change but then I loose.

And I’ve been deep in this anxiousness
I don’t know why
Just can’t get back to myself
How can I get back on my feet and blow things open wide
And get back to having good health
And I’ve been deep in this anxiousness
I don’t know why
Just can’t get back to myself
How can I get back on my feet and blow things open wide
And get back to having good health
Screaming
How can I love? x16

How can I love?

The Night We Met Rewrite

This is a rewrite of The Night We Met by Lord Huron. This is inspired by the wanting of things back to how they were, regretting decisions you’ve made, and just wanting to be rid of your mental illness and problems. If you enjoy this please feel free to share it.

I feel like the only traveler
Who feels lost and so upset
I’ve been searching for a trail to follow again
Take me back to before I wept

And then I can tell myself
What the heck I’m supposed to do
And then I can tell myself
Not to hurt the people I do

I figured all of my problems and thought I’d have none of them
Take me back to before I wept
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do, mind’s haunted by ghosts too
Oh take me back to before I wept

My nights were peaceful and easy
And my eyes weren’t always full of tears
Anxiety had not touched me yet
Oh take me back to before I wept

I figured all of my problems and thought I’d have none of them
Take me back to before I wept
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do, mind’s haunted by ghosts too
Oh take me back to before I wept

Because of You Rewrite

——Content Warning: This song is best to not be viewed if your mind is in a bad place—–

—–Trigger Warning: Suicide—-

This is rewrite of Because of You by Kelly Clarkson. And it’s written as what I’d say to anxiety. This is essentially almost a list of what it’s done to me mentally and what I feel when I’m in a bad place. I hope you enjoy it and if you do please give it a share if you feel so inclined.

All I do is make the same mistakes repeatedly
And I will let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I just wil break over and over
I fall so hard
I learned the hard way
But still I let it go this far

Because of you
I never stray too far from my comfort
Because of you
I always play on the safe side so I don’t get hurt
Because of you
I find hard to to love all of me, and I hurt everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it’s way too long before I figure it out
All I do is cry
Because weakness is all I am in my eyes
I’m forced to fake
A smile a laugh every day of my life
My heart can’t possibly break
When it wasn’t even whole to start with

Because of you
I never stray too far from my comfort
Because of you
I always play on the safe side so I don’t get hurt
Because of you
I find hard to to love all of me, and I hurt everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I want to die
No one hears me cry at night before sleep
I am so young
How can I know better to lean on things?
I find it hard to think of anyone else
All I see is my pain
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the very same thing

Because of you
I never stray too far from comfort
Because of you
I always play on the safe side so I don’t get hurt
Because of you
I don’t know how to deal with anything
Because of you
I don’t know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I’m ashamed of my life because it’s empty
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
Because of you

Begin Again Rewrite

This is a rewrite of Begin Again by Taylor Swift. It was inspired by trying to restart your life and learning to live with anxiety and after major events or big changes. I was actually able to write this in one shot with no changes to the lyrics or syllablea.

Took a deep breath in the mirror
I dont want to be in this spot
But I am
Go to work and I’m on high alert
Feels like I just cant move on
But I do, I do

Walk in don’t wan to talk at all
But people don’t know what’s going and they say hi
I wish they would see and not pull me in
But they don’t know what’s happening
But I do

I run to the bathroom crying like a little kid
It’s strange I have this now cause I never did
I’ve been spending the last few months
Thinking all I ever do is break things hurt and end
But I wonder if theres a way I can learn to begin again

I wish I could find a way
To talk about my problems the way some do
But I can’t
I’d tell stories and I don’t know why
I come off as pretty shy
But I do

I try to talk it all out like a little kid
I think it’s strange that people don’t run cause I thought they would
I’ve been spending the last few months
Thinking all I ever do is break things hurt and end
But now I wonder if I can make things begin again

And I walk down the hall to my room and I need to go to sleep
But my mind wonders about everything I’ve done
Every single attack and I want to move past that
And I start to think about when this will be the past.

And I’ll throw my head back laughing like a little kid
And think it strange that I was like this and what I did
And I know I will spend those months
Thinking of other ways I can love and help and care
Because on a weekday in a cafe I learned how to begin again

Because one day, someday I’ll have learned how to begin again

Amnesia Rewrite

———-Content warning: This is not a positive post and is best to not be read if your mind is not in a good place.——

——-Trigger Warning: Suicide——-

—————————-
Here is a Rewrite of Amnesia from the band 5 Seconds of Summer. They have been a band that’s very open about mental illness and I’m glad for that. Anyways this is inspired by just how much has changed because of anxiety and what my mind can be like. Just a warning that this one does get dark and may be disturbing to some people. However it is also a very real symptom of anxiety and something I wanted to add in.

I was able to go to places and not at all get nervous
I think about that time and how it felt things were so easy
And even though I tell people I’m doing fine

Now I go somewhere and feel lonely even if people are beside me
And people say innocent words but they hurt and I overthink them

Sometimes I start to wonder is it all a lie?
If this illness is real how can I be fine?

Cause I’m not fine at all

I remember the day when I first had this illness
I remember tears that wanted to run down my face
If feels my dreams are shattered and I don’t need them
Same with every single wish I ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about what anxiety really means
The way it feels to fall asleep and hope to die
And bad memories I never can escape

Cause I’m not fine at all

Pictures of me dying are all living in my head
I’ll admit I like to see them I’ll admit I feel alone
Would all my friends notice if I’m not around?

Or would they still be happy how easy would they move on?
Would it be hard to hear my name and know that I’m gone?

I know this won’t happen I know these thoughts are lies
But if these thoughts are real how can I be fine?

‘Cause I’m not fine at all

I now know what it feels like to be very anxious
It’s impossible to think, make small decisions
And your dreams you leave behind you don’t need them
And you crush every single wish you ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about what anxiety really means
Like the way it feels to fall asleep with your pills
Because some nights you know no other way

If today I woke up and this was not beside me
Like having it was just some twisted dream
I’d be more thankful for health than I was before
And I’d never slip away
And here’s what I’d say

I remember what it feels like to feel you’re insane
And I know what it feels like to have tears run down your face
And your dreams you leave behind you don’t need them
Same with every single wish you’ve ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And stop worrying over stupid little things
And how it feels to want everything to be over
And bad feelings that I never can escape

Cause I’m not fine at all
No I’m really not fine at all
Tell me this is just a dream
Cause I’m really not fine at all

 

Photograph Rewrite

For this one I’m rewriting what might be one of my favourite pop songs ever in Photograph by Ed Sheeran. This was inspired by dealing with the ups and downs of anxiety in general. I’ve had a good few days but with anxiety that can change so suddenly.

Living can hurt
Living can hurt sometimes
But it’s the only thing that I know
And when it gets hard
You know it can get hard sometimes
It can be hard to want to stay alive

It can be so hard to love and laugh
Remember those memories for yourself
When the pills you weren’t taking
Heart was never breaking
Time’s forever frozen still

So you can keep this
Inside your head now
And remember
Hold things together
As best you can
You won’t ever be alone
Remember who you are

Living can heal
Living can mend your soul
It doesn’t now feel like it I know
Will it get easier?
I don’t know but know that you’ve made it this far
If you dont feel it there’s people who care what you do

You should try to love and try to laugh
Go make some memories for yourself
To let your eyes go flying open
Repair your heart that’s broken
And freeze time forever still

You can keep this
Sadness in your heart
Of your sad soul
But keep smiles closer
See if you can
You won’t ever be alone

But if you’re still hurting
That’s okay you need to let it
But just keep this thought in your mind
You shall not always be this low

Go look the sun has shone (x4)

Oh you can fit things
Inside of a diary you got go and write them
Write out your heart there
But don’t stay there
Try to move on in your soul

If you’re still hurting
That’s okay you need to let it
But try to keep this thought in your mind
You won’t always be this low

If you go away
They will remember how you helped them
And they will wonder
What could’ve they done
Stay you won’t always be alone
Look up the sun has shone
