The days are hard enough,
Without you beating yourself up,
So try to focus on something else,
And take it easy on yourself

Well it breaks my heart to overhear the things you say,
when you wouldn’t let anybody else talk to you that way,
So don’t you go and hit below the belt,
Take it easy on yourself

You don’t need to be your biggest fan,
Just don’t become your own worst enemy

If you’re feeling stuck, if you feel alone,
If you feel like you’ve drifted too far from home,
Don’t you be afraid to ask for help,
And take it easy on yourself
