Too Much

from by Lael Summer

lyrics

When I was a child
sometimes I would cry
words hurt me more than a fall ever could

They told me I was just too sensitive
this life's not fit for the thin skinned

So I learned to be ashamed
tried so hard to change
thought I must be crippled in some way

'cause I feel too much and I think too much
is there space enough for all of us
I stress too much and I care too much
Well, we've all got a burden to bear

I guess they were right
I really suffered, oh
turns out I couldn't hold the weight of the world

Grew up thinkin' that I was weak
a self-fulfilling prophecy

The feelings I denied
to empty my insides
never ever really went away

'cause I feel too much and I think too much
is there space enough for all of us
I stress too much and I care too much
Well, we've all got a burden to bear
We've all got a burden to bear

It's better to apologize
before I can be criticized
hoping that nobody will see
Was it worth the sacrifice
to eat myself alive

Or is there a place
is there a space
for people
like me
