When you look at me
Know that I am trying
When you see me smile
Know that I’ve overcome the crying
When you hear me laugh
Know that I have hope
And when you see me around
Know that I’ve learned to cope

When I text you late at night
Know that I’m reaching for help
When you don’t answer
Know that I feel like I’ve bothered you and I melt
When I say I’m fine
Know that there is something dragging me down
And when I say I’ll be okay
Know that I know it just for now

When I say I love you
Know that I mean it
Because I only say it when my heart knows it should admit it
When I say I want to help you
Know that I’ll do anything
And when I say I’m there for you
Know that it means through everything

When I say you’ll be okay
Know that it is true
Because I know I am and so will you
When I say it’s just a bump in the road
Know that bumps come and go
And when it knocks you off path
Know that it’ll be there but it will help you grow
