I Didn’t Ask For This

I Didn’t Ask For This

Liner Notes: 

i originally posted this as an acoustic demo a couple weeks ago but i decided to delete it and repost it as a new song because i recorded a new, full-band demo that significantly changed the sound of the song


I need to let you go
I didn’t ask for this
I don’t need this
You could probably let me go
I don’t really care what you do
I just gotta get away from you

Sometimes you call me late at night and you cry
Am I supposed to feel like shit?
Am I supposed to feel like shit?
Is this how you guilt me into sticking around?
I didn’t ask for this
No I didn’t ask for this

You took advantage of my body
Left me feeling dirty and violated
I’d only known you for a day
When you brought me to your place
I thought we would just hang out and watch tv

And it’s like you want my attention constantly
But when I try to speak
You’re not listening.
You’d go on for an hour about your car
And then tell me I’m being too quiet.
Like what am I supposed to say?

What am I supposed to say?
There’s nothing left to say
We need to go out separate ways

If you’re so afraid to lose me
Then fucking let me breathe
Let me breathe

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I love the heavy pulsing rhythms of the bass and drums, the rasping vocal and indie guitar sound. A compelling listen from the start. Really tells an emotional story!
