English subtitle

Baby, put the bottle down
You don't need another one
No, you don't need another one
Girl, you don't need another one
Why you taking all those pills?
Don't you know that they will kill you?
Don't you know that we all need you?
Don't you know I need you still?
I barely knew you back then
But man, the things I remember it's all in
my mind
Tears on my face as I'm writing these lines
To imagine a place, If I asked are you fine
Didn't care, never talked, wasn't there, never
called
Then you were gone, only thing I recall
Saw your girls face, no make-up, no smile
No feelings, no heart, she felt nothing at
all
Like, what could I say?
How could I possibly say, "It's okay"?
How could I not feel this anger inside me
I look at her now, and you made her this way
When you drank all them pills, yeah it killed
her
Since then man, I haven't seen the real her
Screaming in her pillow could you tell me
did you hear her?
Even when she smiles, can you see that it
still hurts
They might say that it's wrong to be bitter
But the more that she drank, the more she
got sicker
No better, she killing her liver
You thought she'd be better but it's getting
worse
Hollow like bottles she's holding
She's trying to sleep, but can't sleep to
the morning
Every day is another performance
These pictures, memories, it's what she's
been holding
She's blaming herself for the reason you left
You took every pill but she feels the effect
Family is in pieces, your friends are a mess
You left all your pain and you gave it to
them
What did you think that would happen
Thought it'd be easy like she would move on
Hang out with her friends like nothing is
wrong
They try to be strong but the moment you left,
she was already gone
Baby, put the bottle down
I can hear you drowning now
I can hear you crying now
In your silence, I can hear you loud
Why you taking all these pills?
Don't you know that they can kill you?
Don't you know that you can heal?
Don't you know we need you still?
Forgive me for my honesty, it's a blessing
and a curse
It's a medicine that hurts, it's the only
thing that works
Who could understand the things that you went
through?
It hurts cause I never even get to
Look you in the eyes like, "Brother, yeah,
I get you."
And even shake your hand and say, "Don't let
the stress get you."
But you left scars that are here to stay
So many stars used for you to stay
So much pain that I see even to this day
They think of you when it starts to rain
Didn't know you was affecting me
What if it was someone close to me?
Like, what if I was you and no one noticed
me?
Spending time alone, yeah
I wonder who would wanna go broke with me
To the girl still crying on her sheets
I know you don't feel like it but you gotta
eat
I know you think you need to, but you don't
gotta drink
Water's coming in but you don't gotta sink
I know it's hard to breathe, you just need
to want to
Anything you need, babygirl I got you
Tell me what it is, tell me what you feel
Tell me you're alive, anything can heal
Maybe I don't understand, guess I never will
But if you're feeling broken now, I promise
you can heal
Promise you can make it out, you don't gotta
be scared
If you're feeling numb, yeah, I promise I'ma
be there
You don't gotta figure it out, I need you
to feel
Sometimes the ones who love us end up leaving
us still
You don't need another bottle, you don't need
another pill
You don't gotta smile but we all need you,
still
Baby, put the bottle down
I can hear you drowning now
I can hear you crying now
In your silence, I can hear you loud
Why you taking all these pills?
Don't you know that they can kill you?
Don't you know that you can heal?
Don't you know we need you still?
Yeah, look at the music we listen to
Bottles and bottles, yeah, gimme another one
Killing ourselves and we're killing each other
The phrase that I'm hearing is "having fun"
Numbing our feelings so we can feel something
How does that make any sense?
(do you hear me?)
They tell me relax, have a great time
They see kids who don't know they're depressed
(do you hear me?)
They bottled it up, now they're shooting it
out
Hitting students all over their chest
And they wonder like what was the reason
He was just fine, saw him last night and he
had a good time
Wasn't depressed, he was out of his mind
Who would've known he was out of it
Guess it was only a matter of time
There's more to perceive what you see in your
eyes
Look at the time that we live in our lives
No emotions, I see them concealing it
Instead of dealing with problems
They hand you a drink like "forget it, you
don't gotta deal with it"
That's the world that we live in, I'm sick
of it
Want no part of the world that I'm living
in
If you cared just a little bit, felt just
a little bit
Things would've been a bit different
