You've been holding on too long
just sing this sad song
you don't know what's right or wrong
but you can't ask someone to guide you.
You're shattered inside,
you've got nothing in mind
Your smiles are lies
But can can't cry, can you?
The tears that don't drop
They always get clogged up
In the will to be strong
In the will to hang on
But you never get better
and you only get more clogged up
when are you gonna them go,oh?
And even when you're smilin', sometimes you feel like crying
Just a plea for help, since you can't find it yourself.
You want to scream out how you feel
To end this ordeal
You want someone to help
But you just think you can deal.
You're pathetic and weak, you belong at people's feet, every
tear shows just how much
you know it's not true
but no one's telling you
becuase they don't know,
it's like you're a ghost.
They only see what you allow
You hold it all in, not sure how
and when the dam does break
you make sure that you're full of hate.
Just a real smile
Even once in a while
it's all you want, it's all you show and it's the fake ones that
Just some happiness
Is all you ever dream of
Not to be rich or famous
but to just know you're above
Above what you've been through
It never just tells you
It's always just huanting you
like you let it do.
Oh,oh,oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh oh
One day you woke up
The sun shone bright above
And a smile came across
you didn't feel like a disgrace
you didn't point out the flaws
you didn't act like anything you wanted was againt the law
you made some breakfast
for the ones you love
and they said, "Thank you much, we don't deserve your love"
Now that was new to you
you were sure it wasn't true
I mean it couldn't be
you was a disgrace to this family
But they didn't say they loved you
Like they do everyday
And it falls across your ears, no they said
deserve your love
As if it was this great, holy thing from above
As if you were this lovely person
Who never asked for a thing
Who always knew how to bring other's happiness
That's when it hit like a rock
you'd been seeing stars
when the world was a universe,
ya, the world is a universe.
So the very next day, you asked if a friend could stay over
If they weren't repusled like you are by yourself
And they said,"Of course, you're the best friend I could ask for"
you asked them to repeat again
Why were you only hearing this now?
This couldn't be true, could it now
I mean, what do you want they want to do with you?
you've never said your opinion
afraid that it was wrong
you never sang a song
Becuase you were afraid your voice would be wrong
But here they are
Saying that they don't deserve you
Have you only been seeing what you only wanted to see?
And you saw
The person you liked
They walked, a smile on like,"Hey, how are you? I'm good, thanks for asking too."
And then said,"See you around later?"
You nodded, despite that your mind debated
and then walked away
And you wish the feeling would stay.
You stop on your way home
let the breeze guide your drifting soul
You get stuck in a hole
You look up to a see a tree
You take in a breath, and realize you can be
as much of yourself as you want to be
As you lean your tired back on the blooming tree
By comes a calming breeze, whispering to you comfortingly
All you can hear and see
Are the birds chirping happily.
