Yeah. Sure. Whatever.Mature

I hate being an inconvenience to anyone. For example: I get counseling (yes, shocking, I know), and everytime without fail, I am overcome by the fear of being a burden to my therapist by telling him my problems. 
This is a song I wrote that stems from my hatred of being an inconvenience or causing inconveniences for anyone. 
The sarcasm in this piece is directed at myself. 

Yeah. Sure. Whatever.

Verse One, Part One
Oh, look at my emotions now! 
Locked up in such a pretty box.
I sometimes pretend they're not even there.

Oh, look at my strength now!
I don't share when I talk.
Why? Well, 'cause I'm sure you don't care.

Verse One, Part Two
You say you're concerned about how I'm doing..
Yeah. Sure. Whatever.

Chorus
I'll just go around, talking and laughing with them all,
Pretending I don't hear my own emotions call.
I'll just smile sweetly when people ask if I'm okay.
"I'm doing well!" is exactly what I'll learn to say...

Verse Two, Part One
I guess I'm afraid of you...
I don't want you to leave me alone.
I'll just work on strengthening my defense.

I guess I'm afraid to burden you...
It's easier to deal with this on my own.
I don't want to be an inconvenience!

 Verse Two, Part Two
You say I'm not a burden if I really share...
Yeah. Sure. Whatever. 

Chorus
I'll just go around, talking and laughing with them all,
Pretending I don't hear my own emotions call.
I'll just smile sweetly when people ask if I'm okay.
"I'm doing well!" is exactly what I'll learn to say...

Ending
I don't want to force you to help me, even if I need it...
I don't want to tell you my hurt, even though I believe it...
I don't want to put you through all this bad weather
You say I won't...but yeah. Sure. Whatever. 

The End
