Every time I listen to “Wishing Well” and hear these lyrics? Oof.

This is the part where I tell you I’m fine, but I’m lyin’
I just don’t want you to worry
This is the part where I take all my feelings and hide ’em
‘Cause I don’t want nobody to hurt me

I can’t breathe, I’m waiting for the exhale
Toss my pain with my wishes in a wishing well
Still no luck, but oh, well
I still try even though I know I’m gon’ fail

It’s stress on my shoulders like a anvil
Perky got me itching like a anthill
Drugs killing me softly, Lauryn Hill
Sometimes I don’t know how to feel
Sometimes I don’t know how to feel

Let’s be for real
If it wasn’t for the pills, I wouldn’t be here
But if I keep taking these pills, I won’t be here, yeah
