Im not as strong as you think...
I can dream and wish
but that doesnt mean they will come true.

Im not as strong as you think...
I still need you here, I need you to be here for me.
I need you to see that im just fading into the background.

Im not as strong as you think...
I still need my mommy and daddy to tell me "things will be ok".
I still need you to say "it's ok to make mistakes; because perfection doesnt exsist".

Im not as strong as you think...
I need to hear that im doing good
That I make you proud

Im not as strong as you think...
I believe in God and heaven; but I need strength from you
I need you to believe in me

Im not as strong as you think...
I still cry when bambi' mom dies and at the end of" Beaches"
I cry almost everynight because I cant handle it for much longer

Im not as strong as you think...
Im falling even deeper and deeper and this time I cant pull myself up.
I need your hand to help me.

Im not as strong as you think...
I may act like what you say doesn't bother me; but it does.
I may act happy and giddy, but on the inside I just want someone to see how much im faking it.

Im not as strong as you think...
I ask and see if you are ok; and Im always there for you
but, I need you here for me now.

Im not as strong as you think...
Because im slipping and falling to the point where I just dont care.
I dont care what you say to me or how I act because it doesnt matter.

Im not as strong as you think...
because im telling you I need help.
Because im admitting im weak and i need you here.

Im not as strong as you think...
because it still hurts me when you dont say hello.
when you see me in the hallway and turn the other way.

Im not as strong as you think...
because i argue with you because I care so much and i dont know how to fix it.

Im not as strong as you think...
because in all honesty, I am weak...broken...tired...frustrated...angry...alone...

Im not as strong as you think...
because I still care.
