This is part of lyrics of a song called "Middle".

Lying down beside you. What's going through your head?
The silence in the air felt like my soul froze
Am I just overthinking feelings I conceal
This gut feeling I'm tryna get off me as well
In the third line, does "I conceal" postmodify "feelings"?

Or, does it belong to the next line as follows?
I conceal this gut feeling I'm tryna get off me as well

Listening to the song, I couldn't figure out which way the singer/writer intended it to be.

Grammatically speaking, it can be either way, I think.

So the question may be which makes more sense in context. What do you think?

    (Just a note... "tryna" is not a word in English. It's a representation of the singer saying "trying to".)

    As you said, it could be either, but my guess is that "Am I just overthinking feelings I conceal" is a single thought. In other words, "Am I spending too much time analyzing the feelings I hide (from you)?"

    As I see it:
    {Lying down beside you.} {What's going through your head?}
    {The silence in the air felt like my soul froze.}
    {Am I just overthinking feelings?} {I conceal
    This gut feeling I'm tryna get off me as well.}
