AnorexicMature

"If eating disorders came in human form, I swear, I would kill it." - a text I sent to my friend a year ago.

Anorexic

Verse One
I watch you scrape your food around your plate
Taking bites at far too slow a rate
I know you're slipping food into your napkin
Is this real? What has happened?

Chorus
It's hard to watch you harm yourself this way
The pain is something no song can convey
Your body fades to ashes, and you let it
I know you wanna the best...
Anorexic

Verse Two
God is here, but why won't He stop this madness?
Why can't I save you from the blackness?
Helpless, hopeless, feeling so all alone
As anorexia replaces the sister I used to know

Chorus
It's hard to watch you harm yourself this way
The pain is something no song can convey
Your body fades to ashes, and you let it
I know you wanna the best...
Anorexic

Bridge
Can't we erase all the pain you lock yourself inside?
Can we pretend that nobody's soul has died?
Can't we go back to the way things used to be?
Can we act like there's nothing wrong between you and me?

Chorus
It's hard to watch you harm yourself this way
The pain is something no song can convey
Your body fades to ashes, and you let it
I know you wanna the best...
Anorexic
