Sixteen
Real Friends Lyrics


Just when I think I need someone
They wrap their arms around my old bones
And I start breaking apart
I walk away from anyone that cares about me
But I swear my skin's not as rough as I make it out to be

The saddest part is I've been distant since I was sixteen
It keeps me up in bed
I'm stuck here with all the choices I've made
And the chances I was too afraid to take

I've called myself young and stupid
But lately I feel old and desperate
I find it kind of weird how you find yourself
When you have no one
I look for the right things in all the wrong places

The saddest part is I've been distant since I was sixteen
It keeps me up in bed
I'm stuck here with all the choices I've made
And the chances I was too afraid to take

Just when I think I need someone, 
They wrap their arms around my old bones 
And I start breaking apart
I walk away from anyone that cares about me
But I swear my skin's not as rough as I make it out to be

The saddest part is I've been distant since I was sixteen
It keeps me up in bed
I'm stuck here with all the choices I've made 
And the chances I was too afraid to take

I've called myself young and stupid, 
But lately I feel old and desperate
I find it kind of weird how you find yourself 
When you have no one
I look for the right things in all the wrong places

The saddest part is I've been distant since I was sixteen
It keeps me up in bed
I'm stuck here with all the choices I've made 
And the chances I was too afraid to take

The feels... Reminds me of those years when I had no friends. I would always act like I didn't care, I didn't show my emotions and I was faking smiles to make other people happy. But I was actually feeling so low inside, I was always crying at night and hoped for someone to see that I was lonely and help me. I've missed so many chances of trying to talk to people, or to tell my bullies to back off. I regret it, but now I've got real friends (no pun intended here) who care about me and I care about them. Just know that everything gets better one day.

My problem was not that they didn’t invite me to hangout,they did but I would just feel anxious and insecure to hang out with people,it’s social phobia

Same here I'm happy for you I just haven't had the friends part yet but hopefully soon thank you for this

Yeah c: One of them became my best friend, and we talk to each other everyday. It's the first time I have a best friend who considers me their best friend too (I'm 18).
Until I was 14, I didn't have any true friends. I did have some friends, but they were more like acquaintances. I knew they didn't really care about me. They never ever asked me to hang out once. In fact, a few months ago I discovered that some of my "friends" had plenty of photos together of the times they hung out, and I had literally no idea of it. Made me feel pretty low. But, well, I have my best friend now, and we often hang out. I know I can count on her and viceversa. She's the only one I talk to everyday to be honest. But I'm still so happy I have her in my life.
But yeah, before I was 14, I was alone & lonely. I was pretty much the awkward/shy/ugly girl nobody wanted to talk to, even though most people think I'm really nice and have an awesome personality lol. I was always sitting on a bench at school, doodling stuff or reading to pass the time. In my last year of middle school, when I started to get a group of great friends and started to get more noticed by people, I realized people only knew me for "the lonely girl sitting on the bench". That's pretty sad lol. Thankfully things has changed for me now.
Also I'm glad you got friends now!

NukeyPookie I'm so glad you found good people. I never had a real friend until i was 20 and went to university, i spent my youth feeling low and so freaking alone but now I'm sure i Will always count on them.

This feels like me today spending my birthday alone. My parents didn't say happy birthday they forgot. My twin sister spent the day with her bf after 20 years of celebrating together and now i'm alone at the beach with my hair and makeup done, in my dress staring at the ocean.
