Jack Garratt – Doctor Please Lyrics

Doctor Please By Jack Garratt

Turn the lights off but leave the bed
Empty and messy just like my head
And leave me swimming in the words you said
That it’s alright not to be okay
I’m lying down but I can’t relax
Looking at you gives me a heart attack
What if I’m not worthy enough to love you back?
But you say it’s fine not to be okay

If home is where the heart is
Mine’s falling down
There’s holes in all the windows
The grass has turned brown
But a sign outside in your handwriting says
That it’s alright not to be okay

I wanna say something so I might as well
Say that I’m fine, but you can tell
When I’m lying about my mental health
I know it’s alright not to be okay
But if it was that easy then I’d love myself
And openly admit that I might need help
Instead of feeling like a burden on someone else
But when is it my turn to be okay?

If home is where the heart is
Mine needs repair
The wood beams are unstable
There’s smoke in the air
But a sign outside in your handwriting says
It’s alright not to be okay
Be okay

Doctor, please help me
I’m struggling to find my abilities
Oh, doctor, please help me
What if I can’t be what she needs?
Oh, doctor, please help me
I’m struggling to find my abilities
Oh, doctor, please help me
What if I can’t be what she needs?
Oh, doctor, please help me
I’m struggling to find my abilities
(Doctor, please help me)
(Can’t be what she needs)
