You don't know what it's like
Do you?
To NEVER be the last one standing
To never win
You don't know what it's like to be alone

You got that love running through your veins
While I'm over here taking anything that'll ease the pain
And in your mind it's a weakness for me to say I'm not good enough
But isn't that what the results show?
Isn't that what everyones telling my subconscious?
They're screaming

And don't say they don't matter
Don't say it
Cause if they don't matter
I don't know who does

And when you tell me I'm not unwanted
I fall apart again
Cause that's all I've ever been
All I ever will be

So don't say it
Don't you dare say they don't matter
Cause if they don't matter
Nothing does

And if nothing matters
Why the hell am I here?
