That Happy

Why do you tear me up for your own entertainment?
Don’t you know it hurts me?
Don’t you know I cry every night?
I want to understand why.

Did I do something wrong?
Did I hurt you when I was young?
Please tell me and I will fix it
I don’t want to be hurt anymore
I want you to love me

I still love you
When will you love me back?
I don’t want to hide in my room every hour
Listing to the haunting of your footsteps
Wondering if they will come to find me

I don’t want to live like this
I don’t want to hate life
I see happy people all the time so I know it exists
I see them walking in the streets with their happy family
And their happy pets
And their happy friends
And their happy life
And I just want to know what it feels like to be that happy

I just want to feel loved and liked
And all for the right reasons
And not because people are watching
