"hate that you've been sayin' I'm dramatic,"

"oh, we know more than what we tell you,"

"but can't always put it into words,"

"and we don't cry because we want to,"


"but you'll assume it's because she's another 16-year-old girl,"


Tate's fans are definitely relating to the lyrics, and most of them are describing similar problems in Tate's YouTube comment section:


"parents: “it’s that damn phone!” little do they know that phone helps me through so much. music, friends, videos to make me laugh, etc."

"Stop crying. That's nothing to cry about!" "You always cry for no reason!" - I don't cry for no reason. I can't describe the reasons I cry for. You won't believe me if I say I have anxiety! I may be young, but that doesn't mean I can't have feelings and problems."


"dear parents" currently has over a staggering 10.9 million views.
