The walls we build around us to keep out the sadness also keep out the joy. - Jim Rohn


Checked into a hospital
Pale face, fluttering heart
I was gone when you needed me
But I’ll try to do better

Pale face, fluttering heart
You pull my hair, I pull yours
But I’ll try to do better
Even though you want to die

You pull my hair, I pull yours
And you still smile at me
Even though you want to die
My eyes black with guilt

Checked into a hospital
And you still smile at me
My eyes black with guilt
I was gone when you needed me.
