Julia Michaels – Pessimist Lyrics

Pessimist Lyrics – ​Julia Michaels

Plantin’ lemon trees since I was twenty-three
Watchin’, waitin’ for it to grow but still it tasted bittersweet
No matter what I did
No matter what I did
I was hard headed to the ninth degree
Punch and push away anything I thought would make a mess of me
That’s just what I did
That’s just what I did

Make me die, make me melt
You’ve changed the way I felt
With your touch, with your help

You took a pessimist and turned me into somethin’ else
You’re all I see in my mind
I think I see a lifetime
I’m done holdin’ on to myself
You took a pessimist and turned me into somethin’ else
Painlessly caught in your eyes
I think I see a lifetime
Done holdin’ on to myself
You took a pessimist and turned me into somethin’ else

You make me believe this ain’t no make believe
I stopped checkin’ horoscopes to cope with all my misery
That’s just what you did
That’s just what you did, yeah

Make me die, make me melt
You’ve changed the way I felt
With your touch, with your help

You took a pessimist and turned me into somethin’ else
You’re all I see in my mind
I think I see a lifetime
Done holdin’ on to myself
You took a pessimist and turned me into somethin’ else
Painlessly caught in your eyes
I think I see a lifetime
Done holdin’ on to myself
You took a pessimist and turned me into somethin’ else

Make me die, make me melt
You’ve changed the way I felt
With your touch, with your help
You showed me what it means to fall in deep like no one else

You’re all I see in my mind
I think I see a lifetime
I’m done holdin’ on to myself
You took a pessimist and turned me into somethin’ else
Painlessly caught in your eyes
I think I see a lifetime
Done holdin’ on to myself
You took a pessimist and turned me into somethin’ else
