I don’t want to be here right now

In the middle of this mess

Don’t want to take off my shoes

Don’t want to take off this dress.

I don’t want to be here right now

Facing this storm

Screaming in vain

Almost becoming my norm.

I don’t want to be here right now

I don’t want to listen to this

I want the power to leave

But you’ve no power to dismiss.

I don’t want to be here right now

Fighting against this crowd

I’d rather feel tenderness

In something much less loud.

I don’t want to be here right now

Seeing him dead

Wondering what the last thing was

That ran through his head.

I don’t want to be here right now

I feel all this is a mistake

I don’t care what you’ve lost

Nor do I care what you’ll take.

I don’t want to be here right now

When I can’t find the love we once had

Was I a plan that you made

Or did I just make you mad?

I don’t want to be here right now

I’d rather be anywhere

Maybe you can see me

Maybe just nowhere.
