I'm not feeling so bold
Can't you see I don't want to grow old
And my photograph's an epitaph of parody
I don't want to be me

I'm not feeling so sure
It would help if you offered a cure
If I wait, it's too late for the remedy
I don't want to be me

You won't save me
Cuz I'm not the fortunate one
So don't blame me
If I decide to go hide or instead to just run

I'm not feeling so well
Maybe we could just sit for a spell
And make amends, it depends on my injury
I don't want to be me
I don't want to be me
I don't want to be me

You won't save me
Cuz I'm not the fortunate one
So don't blame me
If I decide to just run
You won't save me
Cuz I'm not the fortunate one
So don't blame me
If I decide to go hide or instead to just run
If I decide to go hide or instead to just run
If I decide to go hide or instead to just run

    General CommentI may feel like an idiot for asking this but who's Ellie Nash?

    Good song (normally I'm not into songs like this), this one seems to have me hooked.

    General Commenti've never seen degrassi before, so i don't understand how it related to what was happening in the show, or if it's the theme song, or what.
    but i heard it in a thinspo video (eh.), and really felt it.
    i'm feeling a lot of suicidal undertones in it, er maybe overtones if you see it that way.

    but either way, it's pretty clutch.
