about

“Temporary” is a snapshot of my mental state over the last six months. I felt like I had lost myself at a time when all I wanted was to learn who I was, and I didn’t like the person I discovered in the process. I had tied myself so closely to another person and my identity was destroyed alongside that relationship, and the rebuilding has been the toughest challenge of my life.

I’m still figuring out my place and how to love myself, but this song highlights some of the darker feelings I’ve experienced.

lyrics

I don’t like who I’ve been lately;
Down and out, let the bad vibes take the wheel.
I never thought I could hate myself half as much,
As the way you’d made me feel.
Bitter is better when it’s temporary;
A second-best state of what I carry.
Gone with the wind, I could run again.
Am I better than this?

Give it a moment; give me a break,
While I rest here in this space.
Make me believe that things will work out for me.
I’m throwing stones; going alone.
I’m not without sin, but you have your own.
A burnout life I don’t recognize,
But I guess for now, it’s home.

Dance along the fault line;
Feel the shaking in your bones.
Lose the tension in my throat,
And live for something.
I’m throwing punches at a ghost of you;
A language never spoken through.
A life that would collapse into nothing.

I just wanna see me happy.
Finding out there’s a better way to heal.
Giving myself the grace to make mistakes;
To know the pain is real.
I wanna turn all the lights out;
Slip into substance,
And try to escape from myself.
I wanna cling to the thought.

Dance along the fault line;
Feel the shaking in your bones.
Lose the tension in my throat,
And live for something.
I’m throwing punches at a ghost of you;
A language never spoken through.
A life that would collapse into nothing.

‘Cause bitter is better when it’s temporary;
A second-best state of what I carry.
Gone with the wind, I could run again.
But am I better than this?
