When life gives you lemons, make grape juice, then watch everyone wonder how you did it!


I'm here right now like I always am
open and ready when you need help
I help you and you say thank you
but then you leave me alone
like I always am

Why is there no one for me?
Why can't I go to someone?
It's never about me, it's all about you
because it takes more letters to spell you than I or me

Please, can't you see?
You're destroying me.
I'm being used all the time
but there's nowhere for me to run
hey, can't you see?
they're destroying me.

I need help more than the eye can see
because I'm the girl that hides her pain
buries it down because all I ever am
is someone that is a burden and a drag
which I don't want to be

I hate falling to my knees and begging
and I hate this feeling
I need to be saved from where I am drowning
but this pool only gets deeper and no one sees me as I drown
the water is rising, the water keeps rising.

Please, can't you see?
I'm destroying me
I'm hating myself all the time
but there's nowhere for me to hide
hey there, can't you see?
I'm destroying me

and the harder I search
the further everything seems
unappreciated in every way
there for the world to see
under a microscope
but nobody sees
I am overlooked
but if you need me you come running
am I supposed to refuse?
or have I been too kind?
I know I am being used.

Please, can't you see?
You're destroying me.
I'm being used all the time
but there's nowhere for me to run
hey, can't you see?
they're destroying me.

Please, can't somebody come?
Can't you rescue me?
Or am I going to be trampled on
'til nothing's left to show?
please, can't you see
I'm destroying me.

I just need one thing
more than the air I breathe.
I'm begging, I'm pleading, my voice is gone
I have no strength to cry out
except write this song
'cause all my energy is gone
and all that you have ever seen
has all been a facade

Please, can't you see?
I'm destroying me.
I'm hating myself all the time
but there's nowhere for me to hide
hey there, can't you see?
I'm destroying me.


The author's comments:
This was going to be a song, especially the "please, can't you see, you're destroying me" part, which got stuck in my head. It currently doesn't have a tune, but I think it should be left as a poem.
This is a poem to everyone and to no one. It isn't about any specific person.
