Fall Apart

For the Year 7 English poetry presentation task, Ruby wrote the music and lyrics for 'Fall Apart' – it's from the perspective of being a student in lockdown. Enjoy!

It’s fine,
I'm like 13 assessments behind,
But it'll be alright.
Don’t worry it's all under control,
I’m so very sorry to bother you at this time,
But I felt alone.

I know you have had your issue and worries,
And I don't want to be another burden in the mix,
I’m sorry I just don't know how to experience this.

Cause every day’s the same,
and I'm still stuck in the same old brain,
I can't finish anything that I start,
it won't be long until I fall apart,

Rewind,
They say that it will take time,
I have no patience!
I don’t know if I’ll be able to wait for,
The world is black and white nothings right,
And I don't feel so great.

I know you have your own issue you need to fix,
And suddenly I like a huge burden in the mix,
All I can do is strum some chords,
And tell you some facts about the world.

Cause every day’s the same,
and I'm still stuck in the same old brain,
I can't finish anything that I start,
it won't be long until I fall apart,
Fall apart,
Fall apart,
Fall apart,
It’s fine,
No, really, it's fine.
