I wrote this song after I had a bit of a meltdown. I went through a period where I just kept taking on new projects and saying yes to people. I was afraid to miss opportunities, so I just kept saying yes. In the end I was stretched too thin, and I broke down. This song is a reminder that it is okay to say no. I wanted to remind people that it’s not possible to always please everyone, and it is important to prioritise looking after ourselves.

Lyrics

Even the blue sky looks grey today
I see that gloom coming my way
I’ve been dragged into this darkness
I let the gravity bring me down deep

Suddenly the ground cracks open and I drop into
This black hole while you watch me fall

So let me be brave, tell you it’s not right
I won’t say it again, I’ve made up my mind
So let me be brave, tell you that I'm done
I won’t say it again, I’m not coming back

I have said yes to too many things
People telling me what I should do
All these voices come from near and far

Stopping me from being who I am
Suddenly the ground cracks open and I drop into
This black hole while you watch me fall

So let me be brave, tell you it’s not right
I won’t say it again, I’ve made up my mind
So let me be brave, tell you that I'm done
I won’t say it again, I’m not coming back

Frustrations inside me
My tears at night solve no problem
My generosity had no limit, but it hurt me

So let me be brave, tell you it’s not right
I won’t say it again, I’ve made up my mind
So let me be brave, tell you that I'm done
I won’t say it again, I’m not coming back
I won't come back, no, I won't come back (x4)
