Life of Tears

February 27, 2011
By Anonymous

I stand alone, and fight my battles
Though I wish that I could rest
And no one knows the fractured soul
That I currently possess

I have to fight to stay alive
Never let them see me cry
I have to strain to keep my head up
I won't let them see me die

It's hard enough to live my way
Without all these complications
Things I really have to change
Things I really have to say

And I have to fight to stay alive
Never let them see me cry
I have to strain to keep my head up
I won't let them see me die

A single tear, a lone ranger
Invisible to all but me
A fractured heart, a fighting soldier
That the naked eye can't see

The macho world I live in
Won't let a single tear in
I have to keep my head up
This pressure just won't let up

I have to fight to stay alive,
Never let them see me cry
I have to strain to keep my head up
Never let them see me die.
