I want to run
But there's nowhere to run
I want to cry
But I can't find my tears
I wish to be happy
But I'm too afraid
I want to stay
But I leave
I wish to live
But would rather die
I want to return
But never do
I want to be normal
But I'm too broken to save
I want to sleep forever
Yet I lie awake
I want to end
Yet I'm still here
Like the crimson roses in my garden
My heart and soul has withered and Died
