But her latest single since her debut chart-topping LP, "everything i wanted," takes time to reflect on and give thanks to a very important person in her personal and musical development: her sole collaborator and older brother Finneas. It might've been a nightmare To anyone who might care Thought I could fly fly So I stepped off the golden, mm Nobody cried cried, cried, cried, cried Nobody even noticed I saw them standing right there Kinda thought they might care might care, might care. And you say, "As long as I'm here No one can hurt you Don't wanna lie here But you can learn to If I could change The way that you see yourself You wouldn't wonder why you're here They don't deserve you". I tried to scream But my head was underwater They called me weak Like I'm not just somebody's daughter. It could've been a nightmare But it felt like they were right there And it feels like yesterday was a year ago But I don't wanna let anybody know 'Cause everybody wants something from me now And I don't wanna let 'em down. If I knew it all then would I do it again?
