These walls aren’t that thick
Hearing you makes me sick
The words you exchange are unkind
So many thoughts run through my mind

You two are unhappy
Leaving me to feel like the referee
It’s so hard,
But we smile for the Christmas card

Is this how marriage must end
I’m scared to see what’s around this bend
Is it forced smiles from here
The future is unclear

I must hold back my every tear
Bottle it up to make the sadness disappear
It’s a living nightmare
That’s so unfair

I cover my ears
It’s the noise I don’t want to hear
Late at night I cry
But in front of everyone my eyes are dry

You’re wearing me to my core
I breakdown only behind a closed door
I hurt inside
All I want to do is hide

I must stay strong
Even though everything feels wrong
I don’t go out anymore
Instead I stay home in this war

How did everything begin
No one is going to win
Can’t you just quit
No, instead you split
