I had the title for 'Hard to Admit' in my head for a while, but didn't really know what the song was about, until somebody asked me to write a song for a mental health awareness day and it just clicked into place.

We always feel better once we get our feelings out into the open, but taking that first step is the difficult bit.

Lyrics

All the people have gone
The party is over
Left on my own

To pick up the pieces
Of the false smiles
Years that I’ve known you
Seem too many miles

Nobody knows
My silent suffering
Black dog inside

Look in the mirror
I see a killer
Illness of loneliness
So hard to admit

Take me away
Anywhere but here
Anywhere but my despair

To walk through the door
Not come back any more
Vanish into thin air

To open the door
Takes a little more
Courage that’s hard to admit

All the people have gone
The party is over
Left on my own

In the early morning light
It all seems so clear
Walk up to the cliff edge
And just say goodnight

Nobody knows
They don’t care anyway
If I live or I die

Right on the cliff edge
Ready to fly
The chaos of living
I’m ready to die

Take me away
Anywhere but here
Anywhere but my despair

To open the door
Takes a little more
Honesty and courage to show

The side we don’t like
A side we hide
A side so hard to admit

Hard to admit

All the people have gone
The party is over
The choice is just mine

To pick up the pieces
Of all the lies
Years they’ve been hidden
Behind my false smiles

Everyone knows
Deep down we’re suffering
Our own black dog calls

Each one a mirror
Held to each other
Sister and brother
So hard to admit

Hard to admit
