Takin' a drive, I was an ideal Looked so alive, turns out I'm not real Just something you paid for What was I made for? 'Cause I, I I don't know how to feel But I wanna try I don't know how to feel But someday, I might Someday, I might When did it end? All the enjoyment I'm sad again, don't tell my boyfriend It's not what he's made for What was I made for? 'Cause I, 'cause I I don't know how to feel But I wanna try I don't know how to feel But someday I might Someday I might Think I forgot how to be happy Something I'm not, but something I can be Something I wait for Something I'm made for Something I'm made for Produced by Rise Up Productions, LLC Produced by Amy Oakeson Directed by Amy Lynn Whitcomb Director of Photography and Editing Nathan Stone Production Assistant Grace Ibarra Filmed on location at Velour Live Music Gallery Special thanks to Corey, Michael, Piper and the Velour production team.
