Everyone will applaud for you

But no one will applaud for me

Me sitting in a dark room

The covers over my eyes

Blocking out everything that I dont want to say or hear

Blocking out the sunrise, but waiting for the set

Draining my heart of all the broken dreams i once kept

A secret so crystal clear that my eyes cannot adjust

Learning about a past life that was all in vain

Trying to forget all the hurt and pain

All the mirrors in my room are broken

By the ugliness of my face

No mirror, mirror on the wall

I know that I am not the fairest of them all.
