Good evening peepz! Here`s another sad tune from me. Think I am starting to turn into a professional sadboi  ::)

Get It Over With

V1
The only way I know i`m alive is cause it hurts
All of the painkillers they they just make it worse
I`ve been finding my comfort in a bottle of alcohol
Been feeling so lonely I just don`t know who I should call
So I say

CH
Put a gun to my head
Just get it over with
I`ve been laying in bed
Feeling so intoxicated
All the demons inside
Are the ones I talk with
Been saying i`m fine
Does it really look like it
Just get it over with ooh ooh ooh x2
Just get it over with

V2
I`ve been schizophrenic I just don`t know who I am anymore
All the love I find always finds an excuse to walk out the door
The pain is my only friend and I learned to accept that now
I just want the hurt to end so bad so I can breathe somehow
So I say

CH (x2)
Put a gun to my head
Just get it over with
I`ve been laying in bed
Feeling so intoxicated
All the demons inside
Are the ones I talk with
Been saying i`m fine
Does it really look like it
Just get it over with ooh ooh ooh x2
Just get it over with

Just a thought.  This is soooooo personal that it's uncomfortable.  It's almost painful to read.  It almost feels like we're invading the protagonist's privacy.  It's not a long way from 'painful' or 'invasive' to 'unpleasant.' 

If it were written in the second person about 'he' instead of 'I/me' it would allow some 'viewing distance' for the listener or reader, and create a 'place to stand' without feeling 'sucked into' somebody else's personal hell.
