The Voices Are Me

How can you explain being lost when you know exactly where you are?
How do you explain a debilitating fear of what your mind creates?

Today I just want to share a song with you.
I stumbled across it in December last year, in the rabbit hole that is YouTube.

If you can watch the video of her singing it, click here because it’s truly amazing.

Talia Mar is a YouTuber and blooming artist. I found a video that she did for Mental Health Awareness Month. She didn’t know what to say, so she sat down in front of the piano, started singing, and wrote this song.
I’ll say no more, and now I’ll share the lyrics with you…


Stay at home
No one will see your mistakes
Don’t message first
I’m pretty sure they don’t want to talk to you anyway

Something is wrong
When everything’s right
Ghosts of my past keep me up at night
Wanna be more than I am
And I’m scared that I can
But it’s me who’s doubting me

And there is a weight
Pushing me down
Telling me no
Saying I’m not good enough to be
I’m not good enough to be
And what if I break
When no ones around?
Something’s telling me go
The voices make it hard to breathe

Oh, and the worst part?
All of the voices are me
The voices are me

The mirror lies
When I see a smile on my face
How come when I run, does my body move
But my mind always stays in the same damn place

Everyone’s gone
No one said goodbye
Ghosts of my past are the ghosts of tonight
What if I am all that I’ll be
And there’s no more to see
Is there much use believing in me?

If there is a weight
Pushing me down
Telling me no
Saying I’m not good enough to be
Oh, I’m not good enough to be
What if I break
And no ones around?
Something’s telling me go
Those voices make it hard to breathe

Oh, and the worst part?
All of…

Architectural perfection
In the category protection
Cause I don’t want you to see in my mind
The walls that I build might have been built too high
Or am I blind?
How can you cry when you’re physically fine?
And no one can see how far it is you’re falling behind?

And there is a weight
Pushing me down
Telling me no
Saying I’m not good enough to be
Oh, I’m not good enough to be
And what if I break
And no ones around?

They’re telling me no
Oh, they make it hard to breathe

The voices
I wish there was a way
To find a way out
I guess for now I’m just finding my feet

I just wish these voices
Didn’t start with me
