Feeling Small Lyrics

This one's of you, taking your pill
You sometimes forget, and that's okay I guess
This one's of me at my sister's wedding day

Between these spaces, it all got wasted

You're barely breathing, I know
What if it started to show?
And I know...

    Feeling Small is about Josh and his struggle with bulimia.

    This one's of you, taking your pill
    You sometimes forget, and that's okay I guess
    (Trying to get better but it's hard)
    This one's of me at my sister's wedding day (threw up at his sisters wedding)

    Between these spaces, it all got wasted

    You're barely breathing, I know
    (Getting worse)
    What if it started to show?
    (Worried people will find out)
    And I know it won't ever change
    But it hurts the same
    (He can't stop)

    This one's of me, throwing up for you
    And I'm paler still, and that's the way you wanted it
    (Controlled by the sickness)
    This one's of you; certain of cancer
    (With disease)

    Between these spaces, it all got wasted on feeling small
    (Only wants to feel small)

    You're barely breathing, I know
    What if it's starting to show
    And I know it won't ever change
    But it hurts the same
    (Already explained)

    The fever broke somewhere behind July
    (Sickest times)
    Remember how I weighed 135
    (Lowest weight)
    And we collide

    Between these spaces, it all got wasted on feeling small

    You're barely breathing, I know
    And now it's starting to show
    And I know it won't ever change
    But it hurts the same

    This one's of me, losing more weight
    Feeling afraid
    (It's taking over and he's scared)

    This sounds like a guy who has bulimia and a girlfriend who "forgets" to take the pill. They both go to his sisters wedding and he is rummaging through photographs taken at the event and he realizes how screwed-up the world is.

    Feeling small is about looking back at the person that you used to be, and wondering how you could be so dIfferent now. It's about opening your eyes to the choices you've made and finding yourself scared. Because you didn't make them for yourself, but they've already taken over you.
