Have You Ever
Have you ever lived through something
Impossible to forget?
Have you ever been let down
And were too numb to get upset?
Have you ever acted happy and smiled
And beneath that mask was a frown?
Have you ever hidden from the world
Because you were feeling down?
Have you ever made a mistake
That you wish you could take back?
Have you ever found someone perfect
Before you found what they lacked?
Have you ever hated what you saw
When you looked into the mirror?
Have you ever turned around
Too cowardly to face what you feared?
If you have, you know how I feel
And the pain that I've gone through
How something you thought was real
Turned out to be untrue
It's not so hard to hide from the world
When all you feel is lost
And you wish and you want so much to go back
And would try to at any cost
Because sometimes life is too hard to deal
And everyone needs a break
From what they're trying not to feel
